Xiaomi Redmi 2 will be available from 17th March in Singapore

Xiaomi today announces the availability of the Redmi 2 (available in white) in Singapore. It will be available from 17th March 2015. As with previous model, it also sports a dual SIM card slot. And it has been upgraded to 4G for both slots! The processor is now Quad Core 64-bit Snapdragon 410. With a pricing of just S$169, there is nothing much to complain about.


Before proceeding to its features, Xiaomi today also announced the Mi Community in Singapore, a platform that is stepping out of China for the first time. It is an avenue for fans to interact with each other and with Xiaomi. Check it out:
