Xiaomi's limited edition Redmi 2 with 2 GB RAM has been spotted on an e-commerce site, hinting at an imminent India launch.
Technology blog Newzars, while browsing through Amazon India, stumbled upon the yet-to-be released Redmi 2 Prime, listed on the e-retailer website.
After the news got leaked in the media, the webpage was pulled off. But some technology blogs had already taken the screenshot of the website.
It has become a fad among e-commerce websites to reveal unreleased phones to stir excitement among buyers.
Moto G (3rd gen) features were accidently (or intentionally?) leaked by almost a dozen online stores across the world, much before its official launch on 28 July.
It has to be noted that Xiaomi, during the launch of the original Redmi 2 (with 1GB RAM), had announced it will release the limited edition model with 2GB physical memory in India later this year.
Last month, the company slashed the price of the Redmi 2 price by Rs 1,000, to Rs 5,999. Going by Amazon India's listing and the recent price cut, it looks Xiaomi might launch the Redmi 2 Prime soon.
The key difference between the new Prime and the original variant is that the former comes packed with 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt memory, whereas the latter ships with1GB physical memory and 8GB storage space. The rest of the features, such as display, processor (Snapdragon 410), camera and battery capacity remain the same.
