Xiaomi Mi2 and Mi2S originally launched with MIUI 5.0 and was running on Android Jelly Bean, later received an update of Android KitKat. Both phones arrived with Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. With MIUI 9 update, it is believed that these two devices would get several additional features as this UI is based on Android Nougat features.
