As for the specifications, the Redmi 2 sports a 4.7-inch IPS HD display with 312ppi. It is powered by a 64-bit 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (Cortex-A53) paired with 1GB RAM and Adreno 306 GPU.

Other features of the handset include an 8-megapixel rear camera along with a 2-megapixel front-facing sensor. The handset packs in a 2,200mAh battery, and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat based on MIUI 6 skin. The company recently upgraded the Redmi 2 to include a 2GB RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. The company is expected to launch the refreshed variant in India. We expect the smartphone to be priced at Rs 6,999, which would put it in the same price bracket as the new Moto E.

Earlier this week, the company kickstarted a contest on its Facebook page asking fans to decode a puzzle to find out the next phone it was planning to unveil in the country. While the teaser does indicate that the smartphone is indeed the Redmi 2 — as you can see in the image below — there is a tiny possibility that the company may also launch the Mi Pad, its $240 Android tablet in India.
