The MIUI 9.5 Global Stable ROM is also available for devices like Redmi Note 3, Redmi 5A, Redmi 4A, Mi Max 2, Redmi 4, Redmi 3S, Mi Max, and Mi Max Prime. It'll have a dual rear camera setup with either the 12MP Sony IMX486 or 12MP OmniVision OV12A10 sensor as the primary sensor, and the 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 as the secondary sensor. The device will ship with a proven processor, dual cameras and face unlock feature, which may prove to be a USP for Redmi S2 in the budget segment. The firmware does indicate that it'll have a microSD card slot at the very least. The company has often been criticised for copying the iPhone's design language and with the Mi MIX 2s we saw a vertical camera orientation that was identical to the orientation of the iPhone X.

As for markets, the Xiaomi Redmi S2 will launch in India and China, if not elsewhere. Expected to be called the Redmi S2, the device will boast of some premium features aimed at the budget segment. Right now, the most affordable Xiaomi handset in India is the Redmi 5A at Rs 5,999, and going by the specification, the Redmi S2 won't be landing within this segment. As for camera features, there'll be EIS, Portrait Mode, and Face Unlock.

The device will come with an entry-level display with HD resolution. It looks like the main camera will be borrowed straight from Redmi Note 5 Pro. For selfies, the Redmi S2 comes with a single 5MP sensor from Samsung. Hence, it's only a matter of time when Xiaomi will officially push the major OTA update to all the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro over there. The device will be unveiled in the Chinese and Indian markets only; if the leaks are to be believed.
