The Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime looks strikingly similar to its predecessor framing a 4.7-inch 720p HD display. Under the hood, the handset ticks with the same Snapdragon 410 chipset which is a necessity for an entry-level LTE device nowadays. The RAM is now 2GB boosting the handset's app launching capability.

It is also worth noting that the handset is listed to have MIUI 6 based on Android 4.4.4 KitKat but the device is definitely the front-runner in the list of devices to have MIUI 7 on the fly.
