Xiaomi is expected to launch the flagship Mi 7 in China on 23 May.

Coming to the pricing first, Redmi S2 is said to be a mid-range phone, just as the recently launched Redmi Note 5 Pro and Redmi Note 5. Dubbed as Redmi S2, the smartphone is aimed at selfie enthusiasts.

The Redmi S2 listing on AliExpress confirms the smartphone will come with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display with 720 x 1440 HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device could also provide Qi wireless charging technology and will be fueled with 3,350mAh battery.

Another shot of the phone points towards the About page which lists the phone running on MIUI 9 8.5.2, Xiaomi's custom skin based on Android 8.1 with 6GB of RAM and a 128GB internal storage.

For photography, the Redmi S2's vertical dual camera setup features a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. Xiaomi Redmi S2 looks to have slim profile with volume and power buttons located on the right edge.

Many assumed there was a good reason for the Mi 7's delay, like the possible adoption of a 3D facial recognition method or at least an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Xiaomi Dipper on earlier GeekBench listing surfaced with 6GB RAM with octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC and clock speed of 1.77 GHz whereas the latest listing shows 6GB RAM and octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and clocks at a speed of 1.90 GHz. It is expected that the Redmi S2 will be launched in India after China and then will move globally. Moreover, some previous reports claimed that the Redmi S2 will come in three different variants with 2GB/ 3GB/ 4GB RAM options and 16GB/ 32GB/ 64GB inbuilt storage options. It's also worth noting that this time Xiaomi has not used the Hybrid Dual SIM slots, instead it has gone for dedicated dual SIM and microSD slots.

The highlight of the phone is going to be front camera which is confirmed to come with 16-megapixel sensor along with LED flash. Apart from revealing the price of the upcoming smartphone, the AliExpress listing confirms all the key features and specifications as well.
