Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi last week launched its selfie-centric budget device in the Redmi S series dubbed as the Redmi S2 in China and now, the company has started teasing the launch of the device in India.
While the company has not revealed the name of the device, the teaser has mentioned that the device will be selfie-centric and with this, we can guess that it will be the Redmi S2.
In the teaser, Xiaomi has highlighted the word ‘Y’ and considering that it had earlier launched the Redmi Y1 as selfie-centric device, we can assume that the Redmi S2 will be launched as the Redmi Y2 in India.
The Xiaomi Redmi S2 will be launched in India on 7 June at an event in New Delhi. It was launched in China starting at CNY 999 (Rs 10,650) and may be launched in India for Rs 9,999.
