There is no denying that Xiaomi has taken the crown of the budget segment king in India. Earlier this year, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphone first in India and then it was launched in China. The Redmi Note 4 that was launched previous year played a pivotal role in making Xiaomi the brand it is today.

However, the smartphone might be launched with a different moniker and that too under the Redmi Y series in India and could be called as the Redmi Y2.

The Twitter post is accompanied by a short teaser which suggests the handset will be launched in India as the Redmi Y2, instead of the Redmi S2.

Commenting on the report, Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India, said, "We are extremely pleased that we have been able to retain our position as the No 1 smartphone brand in the Indian market (including both online and offline markets) according to reports from Canalys and Counterpoint".

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 has a 5.99 inch IPS LCD display with a 1440 x 720 px resolution. Under the hood, the company would provide with the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with at least 6 gigs of RAM on board.
