Xiaomi Redmi S2: Design
The smartphone looks quite similar to the recent Xiaomi smartphones. It has an 18:9 display but with thicker bezels on the top and bottom. On the top it has 3.5mm headphone jack while base features USB port with speaker grilles. On the back it has two cameras on the left top corner and a fingerprint sensor at the centre.
