Xiaomi Redmi S2 was launched in China few days back. It seems that the company is planning to launch it as Redmi Y2 in India at a launch event on June 7. Xiaomi has started teasing about the launch from its social media chennels such as Facebook which comes with a tagline “The RealYou Smartphone is Coming” which in fact appears like teasing the upcoming Oppo Real 1 smartphone.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 launch - Xiaomi Redmi Y2 (Redmi S2) may launch in India on June 7The teaser also comes with following message:

“Every step in your life is defined by a selfie. Find yourself, #FindYourSelfie. The BEST selfie smartphone is arriving soon.”

Even though the company has not specified the name of the device, it appears that it will be the next iteration of Redmi Y i.e. Redmi Y2 (You may have noticed Y in the tagline in the teaser image suggesting Redmi Y series device). We expect Redmi Y2 to be the rebranded Redmi S2 which was launched in China as a selfie smartphone.
