Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi, is known for purposely dropping hints before releasing their smartphones. This time is no different. We know that Xiaomi is holding an event in Beijing on 13th August, and many had been speculating that it could be the Mi 5. But, today, Amazon dropped in a hint, accidently or intentionally, about a new handset named the Redmi 2 Prime. So now, we know that Xiaomi may release, either both or one of the devices, during the event.


When Xiaomi released the Redmi 2 earlier this year at a launch event, the company also said that it would be soon launching a limited edition with better specs. According to the listing, Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime has a 4.7-inch display with high definition resolution and Asahi Dragontrail glass. The handset measures 134 x 67.2 x 9.4 mm and weighs 133 grams with a 2,200 mAh Li-Po battery that claims to offer 14 hours of talk time.

It is based on Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system. It is powered by 2 GB RAM and a 1.2 Ghz quad core processor (Snapdragon 410). Besides, the Redmi 2 Prime has an 8MP rear camera that comes along with an LED flashlight and a 2MP front camera.

The Redmi 2 Prime is said to come with 16 GB of internal memory and a 32 GB microSD card slot. Other than tha,t the phone has dual SIM (micro), 4G/3G connectivity, WiFi, micro USB port, Bluetooth and GPS.

Amazon removed the listing immediately, not before a screenshot was secured. There was no mention of the price or the availability of the device. Guess we will have to wait for an official announcement by Xiaomi.

What do you think the price range would the device fall in?
