Could a new Redmi 2 or Redmi 2 Plus be coming? Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun says all will be revealed on June 29 and has left no clues as to what the smartphone announcement will be.
It's currently unlikely that Xiaomi will reveal a successor to the Mi Note or Mi Note Pro as these models were only recently released in China earlier this year. The Mi Note Pro in particular launched just a month ago in its home country. Additionally, there is speculation that the next generation of Mi smartphones will be equipped with Snapdragon 820 SoCs.
Thus, a Redmi Note 2 announcement is the more likely possibility. The Redmi Note 2 may sport an 8-core MediaTek MT6795 Helio X10 processor with 5 MP and 13 MP front and rear cameras, respectively. Alleged photos of the Redmi Note 2 recently leaked online.
