The company confirmed the news on the official Weibo platform with the release of the product launch poster featuring the graphically enhanced numerical "6" suggesting that the Redmi 6 will indeed break covers on June 12.
According to reports, the price of Xiaomi Redmi Y2 in India will be Rs 9,999 for its 3GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage version, and Rs 11,999 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage model. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with 3GB and 32GB storage.
Speculations also suggest that Redmi 6 might carry a dual-rear camera and 5MP sensor at front.

The same track also samples Shirley Ann Lee's "Someday", which recently also made an appearance on ye track " Ghost Town". Most notably, it appears André 3000 worked alongside Boogz, Kanye , and Cudi on "Fire".
The phone features 5.99-inch HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. If you are bored of Xiaomi's design language, then this phone isn't for you as it has the same 18:9 display with huge bezels all around, empty bottom chin, vertical dual camera setup on the rear like the iPhone X, etc. Another highlight of the smartphone is stock Android 8.1 Oreo presence. While the inclusion of something like Snapdragon 630 would have been appreciated, the Snapdragon 625 is still a step up from the Snapdragon 435 on the Redmi Y1 and should be more than enough for the targeted audience. Interestingly the fingerprint scanner on the back can also be used to click selfies along with unlocking the device. It's the same setup as the Redmi Note 5 Pro, and it would be interesting to take it for a whirl in different conditions to see how it fares.
Redmi Y2 sports an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered 16MP front camera which also has pixel binning technique and Xiaomi's own AI beautify feature.
Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-USB port. It will be available in three colours - Dark Grey, Gold and Rose Gold. All units of Xiaomi Y2 will be manufactured in India as part of the company's "Make in India" policy. There is also a 6GB RAM version that is available in India, so if you want more multitasking options, you should pick this one up and don't worry about the pricing, because it is still cheaper than the Moto Z3 Play.
There are two storage variants of Y2: 3/32GB priced at Rs. 9,999 and 4/64GB costing Rs. 12,999. The smartphone packs a 3080mAh battery which company claims to last for an entire day. It is weird that despite having space for touch capacitive buttons, Xiaomi went for on-screen buttons on the phone.
