Xiaomi Redmi 2 unboxing and overview

#

Xiaomi has been coming up with some real value for money smartphones lately, and recently announced the Redmi 2. This is a dual SIM phone that has 4G LTE connectivity, and it also has an extremely competitive price tag so we’re expecting big demand. Today we have a Xiaomi Redmi 2 unboxing and overview video to show to readers that will give you a better look at the device.

This smartphone has already launched in China and it will be releasing to further regions, although dates have not yet been confirmed. Many people will be waiting for it, as other budget Xiaomi handsets such as the Redmi 1S and Redmi Note have been very popular, especially in countries such as India.

    Hi there. I head to China on business next week and my colleagues in the China office have bought me a Redmi 2 (China Unicom) to bring back to the UK. Do you know if this handset will work out of the box with my UK SIM card?
