Xiaomi fans in India will be happy to know that the Redmi 2 smartphone and Mi Pad tablet are coming to Flipkart this month! The former will be priced at RS 6,999 (about $110), and the latter at RS 12,999 (roughly $207).
Considering the Redmi 2’s low price tag, the specs here are pretty mid-range. The handset is powered by a Snapdragon 410 CPU, 1GB RAM, a 4.7-inch 720p display with AGC Dragontrail Glass, 8GB storage, microSD, 8MP rear, 2MP front, 3G support, a 2,200 mAh battery, and MIUI 6. While the Redmi 2 isn’t a powerhouse, it is still more than capable of providing a stellar Android experience, especially when you consider the aggressive price tag. A “limited edition” with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage will be coming to India at a later date.
As for the Mi Pad? The tablet brings consumers a powerful yet affordable tablet option, with an Nvidia Tegra K1 and 2GB of RAM underneath the hood. There’s also a 7.9-inch display with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, 16 or 32GB storage, microSD, a 5MP front cam, an 8MP rear cam, a 6,700 mAh battery, standard connectivity options like Wi-Fi AC and Bluetooth 4.0, and MIUI 6 (based on KitKat).
As mentioned above, both devices go on sale this month, with the Mi Pad selling from March 24th. The Redmi 2 will require folks to register first, and the first batch of registors will be able to buy the phone starting on March 24th as well.
