The Redmi 2 Enhanced Edition was supposedly a one-off production in conjunction with Xiaomi’s Chinese New Year festival sale earlier this year. However, it always maintained that if there was enough demand, Xiaomi would offer it as a permanent model in the Redmi 2 series.
Essentially, there are only two differences in the Enhanced Edition of the Redmi 2, but they are two big ones. Most critical of these is the addition of another gigabyte of RAM, doubling the 1GB found inside the original Redmi 2. Xiaomi also doubled the internal storage to 16GB, though the microSD card slot means this isn’t as big a deal as having double the amount of RAM. Other aspects of the Enhanced version remains the same: quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 4.7-inch 720p IPS display, 4G dual-SIM LTE, and an 8MP f/2.2 rear camera.
The Redmi 2 Enhanced Edition will be sold at RM459, or
RM110 RM60 more than the Redmi 2, which had its retail price slashed to RM349 RM399 just last week. It is likely that the third version of the Redmi 2, called the Redmi 2A, will not make its way out of China. The Redmi 2A is the lowest-end model of the three, using a Leadcore processor.
Those interested in purchasing the Redmi 2 Enhanced can do so from 12pm this
Wednesday, 15 July Thursday, 16 July from mi.com/my.
