The latest smartphone from Xiaomi is the Redmi Note 2 which was announced mid last month. Since its launch, the phone has sold over 1.5 Million units. This may look like a small number but considering that Xiaomi is considered a new company compared to other players such as Samsung and LG, the numbers are impressive.
With these figures, Xiaomi is definitely having a great year and the year will get even better as the company expands to other markets.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 has a 5.5 inch display with a full HD resolution. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 processor with 2GB of RAM and either 16 GB or 32 GB of storage space. The 16 GB models retails at $125 (approximately Ksh 13,000 before taxes) while the 32 GB model retails at $156 (approximately Ksh 16,500 before taxes).
The phone is powered by a 3,060mAh battery with a 13MP camera at the back and a 5MP front facing camera.
