Finally!

Xiaomi has made good on its promise, and has officially announced that it will sell the Redmi 2 in the country. Priced at Php 5,999, the Redmi 2 is a very affordable, LTE capable phone, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 processor. The version being sold in the PH is the smaller, 8GB storage variant which is a bit disappointing considering the 16GB variant is now going on sale in different territories.

Xiaomi RedMi 2 specs

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor
  • Adreno 306 GPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4.7-inch HD IPS display with OGS and AGC Dragontrail Glass protection, 1280 × 720 resolution
  • 8GB of storage, expandable via micrOSD up to 64GB
  • 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash
  • 2 megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, USB OTG
  • Android 4.4 Kitkat
  • Li-Ion 2,200mAh battery
  • 134 x 67.2 x 9.2mm

Unfortunately for Xiaomi, the market is currently saturated by bang-for-the-buck phones straddling more or less along the same mid-range price-point. Nevertheless, the Redmi 2 will go on sale soon, most assuredly in Lazada.

  1. Lol… Pinaubos ang 1gb version bago i-release ang 2gb. Panget yung 1gb dahil di nakaya ang bagong miui. Laging nagcrash ang mga apps dahil walang ram. Yari ang mga walang alam na bibili nito. Haha

  2. Panget! Ano ba tong si Xiaomi. Kinakain na kayo ng local brands, Asus at Meizu. Tapos eto pang basura na ito ilalabas nyo?/ Anak ng!!!

  3. I’d rather buy Alcatel Flash Plus.
    Coming form Redmi 1s
    RedMi 2 is not much of an upgrade.
    still 1GB of RAM and 8GB ROM oh c’mon

  4. fail. for 2k more you get the infinitely better meizu m1 note. ung sabit lang talaga niya is the limited memory, but still, so much better. 13/5mp camera, 2gb RAM,full HD screen at 5.5″. walang sinabi to.
    and best of all? sa actual store mu mabibili, hindi ung pahirapan mag agawan sa lazada.
