Redmi phones from Xiaomi have been extremely popular because of their high performance and quality, made available at honest prices — and the new S series is no exception.
Offering exceptional selfie capabilities, the Redmi S series is tailor-made for people who like self-expression and are eager to share exciting moments with others.
Best Redmi phone for selfie
The 16MP front camera of Redmi S2 is able to capture really fine details in daylight and produces high resolution images. In low light conditions, the sensor uses pixel binning technology to combine the information from four pixels and create one large 2.0µm pixel.This greatly improves the sensor’s light sensitivity, producing clearer and brighter photos in low light with less noise.
When Auto HDR is enabled, the 16MP front camera automatically detects a back-light environment and applies the HDR effect. Its Selfie-light mimics natural light, allowing catchlights to be captured, which makes for great portrait photos. The camera also supports AI bokeh that effectively distinguishes the subject from the background, even correctly identifying elements such as hair accessories and popular hand gestures as being part of the subject.
AI dual camera for clear shots day and night
Redmi S2 sports a 12MP + 5MP AI dual camera on its back. The 12MP primary sensor has 1.25µm large pixels, which results in brighter images in low light conditions. The 5MP secondary sensor is dedicated to acquiring depth information, producing photos with great bokeh effects.
In Portrait Mode, both the front and back cameras support AI Beautify that can detect makeup and keep it intact, while the algorithm has also been optimized for popular selfie facial expressions.
5.99” full screen with great ergonomics
Redmi S2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 platform, which is based on the 14nm architecture for balanced performance and power consumption. Redmi S2 comes with a 5.99-inch 18:9 full screen display that allows users to see more while holding less. Its metallic-finish back is symmetrically curved and gently tapered toward edges, achieving great ergonomics and aesthetics at the same time.
Redmi S2 has three slots for two SIM cards and one microSD card of up to 256GB. Redmi S2 also features an IR blaster.
