Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage gets listed on Amazon

By August 7th, 2015 AT 6:18 PM

Xiaomi recently dropped the price of the Redmi 2 to Rs. 5,999. It seems that the Chinese smartphone OEM is gearing up to launch an upgraded version of the smartphone. The Redmi 2 Prime, which happens to be a slightly upgraded version of the device, was listed on Amazon briefly before it was taken down. There was no mention of the price, but we are guessing it would be around the Rs. 6,999 mark.

The Redmi 2 Prime has similar specifications as the Redmi 2, but gets 2GB of RAM instead of 1GB of RAM, and the internal storage has been bumped up to 16GB from 8GB. This makes the device better equipped against the likes of the YU Yuphoria and the Lenovo A6000 Plus.

Xiaomi Redmi 2 Specifications

  • 4.7-inch IPS LCD display, 1280 x 720 pixels, Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Android 4.4 KitKat-based MIUI 6
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 64-bit 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, and Adreno 306 GPU
  • 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, autofocus, LED Flash, 1080p video recording, and 2-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM connectivity with 4G LTE (supports Indian 4G bands), 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS, microUSB v2.0 port with USB OTG, and 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • 2,200 mAh battery

If we can remember it correctly, the company released the Redmi 2 in China with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage, but quickly updated it with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage after some days. However, in India, Xiaomi will most likely keep both the devices at separate price points.
