The phone, for now, was launched in Indonesia and seems to be exclusive for the Indonesian market. The phone comes in pure red back cover and sides, while the front bezels remain black. the smartphone will now be available in four color options — Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Red.
The changes are only outside of the phone, the internals remains same. On the specification side, this device has a 5.5-inch display with the resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels, making pixel density 403ppi. Powering the device is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 based on 14nm technology for better performance and better battery life. For the smoother operation, the device has 4GB RAM alongside 64GB storage to keep all your apps and data and can be further expanded up to 128GB if needed.
On the optics department, it packs dual 12-megapixels at the rear one regular lens and another telephoto lens for 2x zooming and portraits with shallow depth of field To back the internals is a 3080mAh non-removable battery. And the phone charge over USB Type-C, unlike another budget end device for Xiaomi.
