Xiaomi in-house camera department to focus on image quality

Xiaomi product lineup includes mi 7 Lite Mi MIX 3s and more

Xiaomi recently unveiled the Redmi S2 in China touting it as the Best Selfie Smartphone, and it won't be a surprise if Xiaomi India launches it in the sub-continent. And now, it is expected to reach India - as soon as June 7 - not as the Redmi S2 but as the Redmi Y2.

"Xiaomi maintained its lead in the market for second quarter in a row with further expansion in the offline channel and popularity of its models such as Redmi 5A and Redmi Note 5". The device is scheduled to be officially announced on 7th June at an event in New Delhi. Xiaomi has teased the launch of the new Redmi handset through its social media channels in the country.

We have already reported that Jio Phone is right now #1 feature phone brand in India as they have beaten Samsung.

The India smartphone market saw a shipment of 30.0 million units in 2018Q1, making it the strongest start to a year and maintaining a healthy year on year growth of 11 percent, according to International Data Corporation's (IDC) Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracke.

Expect the Motorola to price the new G series phone competitively - we expect the G6 Play to go in a duel with the Redmi Y2 whereas the G6 could take the battle to the Redmi Note 5.


Xiaomi Redmi S2 features a 5.99-inch HD+ LCD display. The phone comes with Xiao AI voice Assistant and with face unlock feature.

Xiaomi's S series debuted in China last week with Redmi S2. Honor, which is backed by superior camera technology of its parent company Huawei, has been becoming more and more popular in Indian market. That chipset is coupled with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM along with either 32GB or 64GB of storage which is expandable via a microSD card. Talking about what will be the price of the Xiaomi Redmi S2 in India, the phone is expected to come with the same price tag in India.

However, Xiaomi's latest phablet, Mi Mix 2S, which uses sensors from both Sony and Samsung, comes equipped with an AI engine that automatically chooses the shooting mode depending on what is in the viewfinder. There is a 16MP front-facing camera with LED flash.

The primary camera comes with a dual-lens setup. The Redmi S2 gets its strength from decent 3,080 mAh battery and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system wrapped under MIUI 9.
