Xiaomi Redmi 2 Launched

The new budget smartphone from Xiaomi is finally here!

After giving away teasers on the new Xiaomi Redmi 2, the Chinese manufacturer has finally decided to take it to the next level and actually launch the budget smartphone at an official launch in New Delhi.

Priced at rs 6,999, this smartphone, which would also be known by the name Xiaomi Hongmi 2, supports 4G network connectivity and would pose as a rival to the second generation Moto E and Lenovo A6000. The new Redmi doesn't seem to have much of a marked difference from the Redmi 1S, though the phone is indeed of the next level as its tag-line “Taking it to the Next Level” states.
