Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime Features

The Xiaomi RedMi 2 Prime is the first phone in the widely popular 'Make in India' initiative. Several brands like Xiaomi, Gionee, Samsung and OnePlus have decided to start manufacturing and assembling phones in India under this initiative. A bumped up version of the hugely popular RedMi 2, the RedMi 2 Prime doubles the memory on board. The RedMi 2 Prime is one of the outstanding options for anyone who is looking to buy an Android phone under the price of Rs 10,000 and is not willing to go for a large sized device. Firmly stacked in a war against the likes of Yu Yunique and Motorola Moto E, the RedMi 2 Prime packs a punch thanks to the customisations and simplicity that MIUI offers. Some of the features of the phone are as follows:

  • The RedMi 2 Prime comes with a 4.7 inch 720 laminated panel. Unfortunately, you do not have any gorilla glass, so if you are prone to dropping your phone, you may want to be extra careful.
  • It is powered by Snapdragon 410 SoC, which is a Quad-core chipset, with CPU cores powered at 1.2 GHz.
  • The memory on the device is bumped up as compared to the RedMi 2 to 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage.
  • If that is not enough, you do have a slot for expansion via MicroSD card. The phone supports up to 32 GB cards.
  • RedMi 2 Prime comes with an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front facing shooter. You get a bunch of interesting shooting features like HDR, Geo-Tagging and Face Detection too.
  • The device supports Dual SIM, with support for LTE available out of the box.
  • Battery on the device is a non removable 2200 mAh, which would last you a typical day's use.
  • On the software front, out of the box, the RedMi 2 Prime comes with Android 4.4, though you would get the update to MIUI 7.
