Xiaomi Global’s spokesperson, Donovan Sung today has revealed that the company will be launching the Redmi S2 smartphone in Indonesia soon. While the well-known executive has hinted that the phone might be heading to markets outside of China in a tweet earlier this month, this is the first time that a specific market was mentioned by Donovan.
The revelation doesn’t really surprise us though as Indonesia is indeed a huge market for Xiaomi especially when it comes to Redmi devices since they are catered for budget conscious users. It is still an interesting decision since the company has just launched Redmi Note 5 in the country last month.
Indonesia Mi Fans, we're excited to launch #RedmiS2 with 16MP AI selfies! ?
This elegant phone has an amazing hand feel with a beautiful 5.99" full screen display, and is for those users who value self-expression above all.

Made for selfie lovers, one of the most touted features of Redmi S2 is its 16MP front camera which also comes with AI Portrait Mode and LED flash. There is also a dual camera setup on its back that is equipped with 12MP and 5MP sensors.
Other than that, the Redmi S2 also features 5.99-inch HD+ display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, and 3080mAh battery. The phone can be obtained with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage.
Meanwhile, we also expect the phone to be released in Malaysia as well since it apparently has passed through certification process by SIRIM recently. For those who can’t wait though, certain parallel importers have already brought the Chinese variant of the phone into our market anyway.
