Xiaomi India has initiated a new contest on its website, and teased the launch of a new product on March 12, Thursday. The company has created a buzz about the launch of this product through Facebook and Twitter posts. But, it’s likely that this new product is Redmi 2!
Through Facebook posts, Xiaomi India gave a hint that priority passes will be provided to those consumers who can locate three keywords given in the word puzzle. The company clarified that the keywords relate to the upcoming product, and it’s sure to be a big hit in the market. The puzzle shared by Xiaomi includes a number of words like quick charge, expandable, e-books, matte, and cortex. These words point towards a smartphone, but one cannot be certain that they direct towards a particular product which is expected to make its way on March 12.
The new product could be Redmi 2 as presently, Xiaomi’s online retail partner Flipkart isn’t selling its predecessor anymore! As for now, only Redmi Note 4G, and 16 and 64GB variant of Mi4 is being sold on the website, and Redmi 2 can be the strongest contender to take its predecessor’s place.
To remind you, Redmi 2 was launched in china in January at a price of CNY 699. The availability of this phone outside china wasn’t disclosed, but following the massive success of other Xiaomi phones, its launch was expected in India.
The dual-sim Redmi 2 boasts a 4.7-inch IPS HD display powered with 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor and 2GB RAM. It runs android 4.4 KitKat optimized with MIUI 6 on the top. The 8MP rear and 2MP front facing camera of this device is complimented with 16GB of inbuilt storage, and a long-lasting battery of 2200mAh!
This new product from Xiaomi will be a big hit as it’s already getting positive response from smartphone enthusiasts!
