Xiaomi Redmi S2
If you plan to buy a smartphone from Xiaomi, you will now have the choice between Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Xiaomi Redmi S2. Since it is located in an intermediate step between the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Pro, the new Redmi S2 adopts the design lines that we saw in this pair of terminals at the beginning of the year, with a chassis made entirely of aluminum , and on this occasion some lines for the better concealed antennas , in the form of two very thin strips that run along the top and bottom of the terminal. Among the colors to choose, we will find three: Gray, Rose gold, and Champagne Gold.
It sports very balanced features for its price, with a 6-inch diagonal IPS LCD screen in 18: 9 format and in HD + (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution and an all-metal design. Obviously, the screen is less interesting than the Redmi Note 5 (Full HD +), but the Redmi S2 offers a dual camera module at the rear,
Internally, the processor that brings the Redmi S2 to life is the -something outdated- Snapdragon 625, a processor that, although it has amply demonstrated its great relationship between performance and efficiency, has already a couple of years behind them, and has gone through a host of terminals including several of Xiaomi as the famous Mi A1. At his side, taking care of the graphic power, is the Adreno 506 GPU, and is supported by 3 or 4 GB of RAM . When it comes to storing information, we should not have a problem thanks to its 32 or 64 GB of storage, which at any time can be expanded through microSD.
To keep Android 8.1 Oreo fully operational with MIUI 9, it is responsible for a 3,080 mAh battery , which should offer more than decent performance given the resolution of its screen and the efficiency of the chip it assembles.
Where Xiaomi has wanted to bet more strongly on this device is in its photographic section. At the back of the Redmi S2 we find a dual system, consisting of two 12 megapixel sensors and a pixel size of 1.25μm, accompanied by a secondary one of 5 megapixels. In conjunction, both sensors offer the possibility of capturing background information and thus enable effects such as portrait mode. On the front, a single sensor of 16 megapixels equipped with artificial intelligence and soft-LED flash , is responsible for capturing category selfies, relying on technology pixel binning technology capable of combining the information of four pixels to create a large 2.0μm pixel.
