Why are we sure it is the Redmi 2? We have two reasons. Firstly look at the image below, it resembles the one Jain tweeted.
Secondly, Xiaomi had posted a word puzzle at their homepage last week, and lucky winners would be awarded priority passes for a device. The words mentioned in the puzzle all pointed out to the Redmi 2.
Redmi 2 Technical Specifications:
