Xiaomi Mi 6X with 20MP front and rear cameras; Launch Confirmed

The device will be called as Redmi S2 and packs entry-level specifications. The screen is a rather large 5.99-inch FHD+ with an 18:9 aspect ratio, while on the rear there is a 12MP+5MP sensor and on the front is a 13MP camera.

The alleged smartphone will have dual camera setup and face unlock feature, which is only available in the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Mi Mix 2S as of now. One of the highlighting features of this rumoured Redmi S2 is the presence of a dual camera setup - a feature which has just started seeping into the budget segment. It is likely that the smartphone will come with a microSD card slot to expand the storage.

Judging by the specifications, the Redmi S2 and Redmi Note 5 could compete under the same price tag, where the Note will offer a better display and battery life, and the S2 will have a better camera at disposal. The firmware of the leaked device has spilled out plenty of details, including its availability in India and China market. Xiaomi has not announced any plans about the Redmi S2 at the time of writing. While Xiaomi launched the Redmi 5 last month as its new budget offering, it seems that the company has something else in its bag to join the Redmi 5 in the budget segment. It will also have a 5-megapixel Samsung S5K5E8 secondary sensor. For selfies, the Redmi S2 comes with a single 5MP sensor from Samsung. Therefore, we can assume that a normal model Mi 7 will have a touch fingerprint scanner below the display.

To all Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro users in India, "heads-up", as soon your wait for the Android Oreo ought to end happily. The device will also come with the latest version of Xiaomi's own MIUI 9 or higher. The device will be unveiled in the Chinese and Indian markets only; if the leaks are to be believed.

As impressive as the specs sheet looks so far, the camera components are going to be the biggest USP for Redmi S2.
