Fans of Xiaomi, take note: Mi Singapore has announced that as of yesterday, the Redmi 2 will cost S$149, a $20 drop in price from its launch price of S$169. According to a press release, the drop in price was put down to lower costs on the manufacturer’s end.

We previously did a review on the Redmi 2 when it launched in March — the phone is thinner and lighter than the Redmi 1S, so it’s not surprising that Mi Singapore reported receiving a warm reception from Singaporeans when the Redmi 2 went on sale.
