Redmi Watch 2 is set to launch in China alongside the Redmi Note 11 series. The smartwatch will launch on October 28 in the domestic market and is anticipated to come with a larger screen than the predecessor Redmi Watch. A new leak now hints at the price of the Redmi Watch 2 just days before launch. The price has been seen on the Chinese e-commerce site JD.com. The Redmi Note 11 prices had also previously been leaked via a Chinese insider and the teasers have been plentiful.
GizmoChina saw the Redmi Watch 2 price on JD.com ahead of launch. The listing suggests that the Redmi Watch 2 may be priced at CNY 399 (roughly Rs. 4,600) at launch. This was seen in the "Guess what you like" widget on JD.com and clicking on the Redmi Watch 2 product displays a message that the smartwatch has not yet been announced.
The teasers suggest that the Redmi Watch 2 will come with a 1.6-inch screen, while the original Redmi Watch has a 1.4-inch screen. Redmi Watch 2 will feature a larger AMOLED screen instead of an LCD. The AMOLED display on the Redmi Watch 2 is expected to offer deeper black levels and better contrast compared to the previous model. It can also help improve battery life as AMOLED panels are considered to be better than their LCD counterparts when it comes to energy efficiency.
Redmi also teased that the new smartwatch will come with narrow bezels that will result in a larger screen-to-body ratio than the existing Redmi Watch. JD.com has listed the Redmi Watch 2 and offers pre-sale registrations at CNY 50 (roughly Rs 600). It is listed in three different wrist strap colour options, namely Elegant Black, Ivory and Space Blue (automatic translation). The smartwatch is expected to offer a list of fitness tracking features, in addition to providing real-time notifications from a connected phone.
