Xiaomi’s Follow-up to Redmi Packs 5.5-inch Display, Octa-core CPU, 1GB RAM

Xiaomi had a hit with the Redmi or “Red Rice” Android phone.   The cheap phone helped Xiaomi expand internationally, but sadly that excludes the Philippines.  Xiaomi now has a follow-up to the Redmi and it’s a bigger phone with better specs.  Pricing details will most likely be the same.


The new phone has no name yet but specs have been revealed.  It feature a 5.5-inch, 720p IPS display, 1.4GHz or 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 13-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front shooter and an expandable internal storage.  The phone will run Android 4.2.2.

Xiaomi is expected to unveil the Redmi sequel in April.
