Upgraded Xiaomi Redmi 2A goes on sale tomorrow

Vlad, 07 September, 2015

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has announced a new version of his company's Redmi 2A smartphone model. The new, enhanced Redmi 2A will go on sale in China tomorrow.

Compared to the previous iteration of Xiaomi's cheapest device, the new Redmi 2A will be almost identical, save for two pretty important upgrades. Whereas the original model comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, the new one will double both of those.

So you'll get 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The price for the new model will be CNY 549 ($86 or €77 at the current exchange rates). That's CNY 50 ($7.85, €7.05) more than the original, but for most people the upgrade will probably be worth it.

Otherwise, the new Redmi 2A will share its specs with its predecessor. It will have a 4.7-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front-facing unit, the Leadcore L1860C chipset with 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU, 4G LTE support, dual-SIM functionality, and a 2,200 mAh battery. Although this hasn't been confirmed, we expect it to run MIUI 6.0 based on Android 5.0 Lollipop just like the original Redmi 2A.

Ok guys, an update.... I got Redmi 2 Prime (2GB/16GB)... Its damn fast... I get about 1.1 GB free RAM out of 2GB. However, not even a single slight glitch or lag did I find in it. Sound quality is fantastic! Camera is good for its segment. H...

The only difference is in the amount of memory you get, both RAM and Internal Storage gets doubled in the new version. That's it.
