As expected, Xiaomi has offered its Redmi 2 for Rs.5,999 on Tuesday with a gift voucher worth Rs.1,000 off for all users who bought it between 30 June and 6 July.
The Mi Coupons will be issued by 15th July, 12 noon, said Xiaomi on its Facebook offer page and if one has bought more than one Redmi 2 using one Mi Account, they will receive more Mi Coupons rebates (one per phone), it added.
Validity of the coupon is for 7 days and it is not transferable and exchangeable, it said.
Earlier, Xiaomi said, “Paint the town red. Get ready to change your phone,” on its Twitter and Facebook pages announcing the hint at price cut today. Otherwise, the Chinese smartphone maker has been on a spree of price cuts, with its Redmi Note 4G price already slashed to Rs.7,999 and the Xiaomi Mi 4 (16GB variant) brought down to Rs 14,999, with Redmi 2 awaiting clearance sale with a slashed price.
The Redmi 2 priced at Rs.5,999 would mean a good bargain as it features a 4.7 inch HD IPS display at 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, powered by a 64-bit 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and sporting 1GB RAM and Adreno 306 GPU. It has USB OTG and runs on Xiaomi’s own MIUI 6 skin over Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Redmi 2 also has an internal storage of 8GB, expandable up to 32 GB via micro-USB card. The cameras also feature an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera.
