Quad-Core 64-Bit Processor

The new Redmi 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, MSM8916, a 1.2GHz Quad-Core 64-bit processor, which can fully utilise the advantages of the 64-bit Android system. Other than the 64-bit processor, the Redmi 2 also has the A53, which possesses 50% higher computing speed than that of a Cortex A7. With the Hexagon DSP core, the A53 is able to run movies, music and camera functions with ultra low power. Its configuration also allows the phone to run smoothly even when you are concurrently surfing the web and chatting. It can also run 3D games without a single glitch.

Dual Sim, Dual 4G LTE Support

In this upcoming 4G LTE era, the support to 4G LTE is inevitable on all smartphones. The Redmi 2 not only supports Dual Sim, it can also support 4G LTE on both card slots and running them concurrently, with connection speeds of up to 150 Mbps. With this technology, it provide users with tons of convenience to segregate between work and personal life.

4.7" IPS Display

Redmi 2 retains its screen size of 4.7". This has always been the ideal size in maintaining the balance between reading, movies and game play experiences.

With a screen resolution of up to 1280 x 720 and 312PPI, users are able to read the display clearly even when the phone is under scorching sunlight. And thanks to the cutting edge technology of single glass full lamination, glare is effectively prevented and the screen permeation rate and brightness is also improved. Users can also say goodbye to scratches with Corning Gorilla Glass installed on it.

5 Precision Lens

Redmi 2's rear camera has 5 precision lens, 1 more than most budget smartphones in the market. This extra lens is a blue glass infra fliter, which moderates the sensitivity of the infra sensor on the camera, resulting in better colour quality of pictures taken. The front facing 2 megapixel camera, coupled with a second generation 36-level intelligent beautifying function, this phone is a must have for all selfie lovers!

Attractive Back Covers
