It will be available in India in two colours – white and grey. We checked the smartphone and it looks quite impressive. It fits very well in one hand and is also very light. The screen is very bright and the camera is also one of  best we have seen in this price segment.

One of the best thing about the device is the 4G Dual Sim Dual Standby. Both the slots support 2G/3G/4G. The smartphone will give a tough fight to the recently launched Moto E 3G variant as the price is exactly the same, however, Redmi 2 offers a lot more.
