The smartphone is said to pack a primary 12MP Sony IMX486 or 12MP OmniVision OV12A10 sensor at the back, which will work in tandem with the 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 sensor.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 specifications that we discovered that tell us this is an entry-level device are the resolution and the system-on-chip. The firmware also gave a peek at the specifications of the unannounced device. Some of the users have successfully flashed the file on their device and reported the firmware to be stable as denoted.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC will be powering the smartphone and it will also be featuring a 4G LTE modem with up to 600Mbps downlink speeds. Though the screen size is pegged at 5.99 inches, possibly the only disappointment worth mentioning is that the Mi 6X will have a "smaller than usual" 2,910mAh battery.

The chipset will be mated to 16GB of onboard storage, and the RAM configuration is not revealed in this report. The camera will also come with Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Portrait Mode with background blurring feature. The firmware does indicate that it'll have a microSD card slot at the very least. The device will be shipped with Android 8.1 Oreo OS out of the box.

Similarly, with the Redmi S2 entering the portfolio, Xiaomi might want to target the affordable segment with a dual camera setup for photography, which is now lacking in the Redmi 5 and the Note 5. It may launch in India first, and then make its way to its home market China.

According to a new report on XDA Developers forums, Xiaomi is working on an affordable smartphone with features like dual camera, full-screen display and face unlock to woo budget-conscious consumers in India.

As impressive as the specs sheet looks so far, the camera components are going to be the biggest USP for Redmi S2. The device will be unveiled in the Chinese and Indian markets only; if the leaks are to be believed.
