Xiaomi now occupies almost a third of India's smartphone market: IDC

Xiaomi Redmi S2 With 18-9 Display 16 Megapixel Selfie Camera Launched Price Specifications

The Chinese tech giant Xiaomi had a huge success in India and some in the Asian markets. There are reports that the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 will ship with camera sensors manufactured internally by the production team of the company.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 resembles its bigger sibling, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro in terms of design aesthetics.

Under the hood, the Redmi S2 runs on the Snapdragon 625 chipset, a tried and tested SoC for Xiaomi. The company has posted a teaser on Twitter for a new selfie smartphone launch in India on June 7 without naming it. The Redmi S2, on the other hand, has the lowest display resolution among the three thanks to its 5.99-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels.

Although the prices have not been released for India, experts say it is expected to be Rs 10,600 and Rs 13,700 for two variants launched. The Redmi S2 gets a dual camera setup at the rear consisting of a 12-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary shooter. Notably, the Redmi S2 was originally teased as the "best Redmi selfie phone" - thanks to a bunch of artificial intelligence (AI) powered proprietary features and a new front-facing camera sensor that comes in a 2-micron pixel size. But Xiaomi doesn't want rest on its laurels and the company is now planning to create an in-house camera department that will exclusively focus on improving image quality, as per an internal mail sent by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun. The segment registered a QoQ growth of 50% with Reliance Jio leading the table with market share of 38.4%, followed by Samsung (10.4%) and Transsion holdings (7.9%). This is pretty decent but the front comes with a whopping 16 MP camera which is incredible in the given price range.
