Xiaomi doubles the Redmi 2 to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with the Enhanced Edition
Xiaomi isn't called China's Apple for nothing. Just like the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus get by on 1GB of RAM, the new Xiaomi Redmi 2 also has 1GB of RAM inside. Well, at least it did. While Xiaomi engineers believed that the handset was just fine with 1GB of the sweet stuff inside, Xiaomi gave in to complaining customers and not only doubled the amount of RAM in the phone to 2GB, it also doubled the native storage from 8GB to 16GB.
There is speculation that the version of the Redmi 2 with the 2GB of RAM will be known as the Enhanced Edition. Priced at the equivalent of $128 USD, it is expected to go on sale during Xiaomi Spring Festival which takes part from February 13th through February 25th, before the Chinese New Year
The rest of the phone's specs will remain the same including the 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 312ppi. A 64-bit quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 306 GPU handling graphics. 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage is aboard after the change. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking more memory. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 2MP respectively, and a 2200mAh battery powers the handset. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed with MIUI 6 on top.
Kudos to Xiaomi for listening to their customers, and so quickly too. Doing something like this really makes consumers feel like they have a voice and a say in the things they buy.
