Xiaomi Redmi Y2 Spotted On Geekbench, Might be a Redmi S2 rebrand!



Redmi Y2

Xiaomi has planned to conduct an event in India on the 7th of June. The event will mainly focus on the launch of a new smartphone in the Redmi series. The device to be launched has not been explicitly revealed by the company yet but we expect that it might be the Xiaomi Redmi Y2, the successor of the previous generation Xiaomi Redmi Y1.

It has been in the air that the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is actually the rebranded version of the Redmi S2 which was recently launched in China a few weeks before. The device has now been spotted on popular benchmarking website Geekbench.

The device scores a decent score of 843 in single core and 4196 in the multi-core department. The processor used is an octa-core one, most probably the Snapdragon 625 clocked at a base frequency of 2.02 GHz. This score complies with the scores of the Redmi S2. According to our sources, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 will be the rebranded version of the Redmi S2, mainly because the company doesn’t have an S line-up in India.
