Last month, the Chinese brand launched a selfie-centric smartphone Redmi S2 in their domestic market. Basically Xiaomi is launching Redmi S2 in India, rebranded as Redmi Y2.

The e-commerce website Amazon has already listed the upcoming Redmi Y2, which means it is going to be an Amazon exclusive in India.
