Xiaomi's Hongmi 2 To Provide Octa-core Power On A BudgetBy cheatmaster 07:42 Mon, 19 Jul 2021 Comments
The octa-core-running Xiaomi Redmi 2 is slated to be one of the first devices around to provide octa-core performance at a budacquire price.
The Xiamoi Redmi 2 (also known as the Hongmi), is slated to sport a 5.5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, and 1.7Giga Hertz (GHz) octa-core Central Processing Units (CPU) from MediaTek or a 1.4Giga Hertz (GHz) Snapdragon chip of unknown core count. Also on board is a 13MP/5MP capturing camera combo, and a microSD slot of up to 32GB.
The Snapdragon version in question will be of the Cortex A53 architecture that has support for 4G LTE as well, which would be another vital caveat if it were included.
Although all of the above specs sound a bit too hefty for the sub-$130 price range that the Redmi currently inhabits, expect the sequel to be very competitively priced as it hopes to compete in the budget-bonanza that is China's emerging LTE market.
