Xiaomi has been pretty successful in the previous years where their smartphone efforts are concerned, and it does not look as though the company is about to slow down anytime soon. In fact, the company has seen successes in the mould of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, the Redmi Note and the Redmi 2. The Redmi 2 occupies the sweet spot for many a person, being easy on the budget (relatively speaking, of course) at approximately $100 a pop – not to mention offering a fair amount of hardware firepower in the process. Well, there are now whispers going on that there will be an updated version in the pipeline, which one will obviously have to take with a pinch of salt at the moment.
The original Redmi 2 will run on a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 chipset, where it is accompanied by the likes of 8GB of internal memory, a 4.7” HD display, 1GB RAM, and LTE connectivity thrown into the mix as well. On TENAA, however, which so happens to be the Chinese equivalent of the FCC, there seems to be a new and improved model – which will not veer too far away from its predecessor in terms of design, but rather, the changes are internal. We are talking about having 2GB RAM, as well as doubling of the internal memory at 16GB.
Apart from those changes, everything else more or less looks the same – now all that is required would be a little bit of patience.
