Xiaomi Redmi S2 to launch in India as Redmi Y2

The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU.

The Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition feature a 6.21-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display with DCI-P3 color gamut, a resolution of 2248 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The Snapdragon 710 is aimed to provide flagship features to devices but with a smaller price tag so the Mi 8 SE is considerably cheaper as opposed to the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition, as you'll soon find out if you read the pricing differences below.

Xiaomi has a history of, uh, taking inspiration from Apple when designing its own brand phones, the Mi 8 is no exception. The Mi 8 will have a starting price of 2,699 Chinese yuan (which converts to about $420, £315 and AU$555) while the Mi 8 SE's base price will start at 1,799 Chinese yuan (approximately $280, £210 and AU$370).

If you've got a bit more cash to spend, you might want to consider the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, which comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage, an in-display fingerprint sensor, 3D face unlock, and a gorgeous-looking transparent back. As one would expect from Xiaomi, these are highly competitive prices.
