Xiaomi Tipped to Release Redmi 2, Mi Pad on 12 March in IndiaXiaomi word-puzzle screen-shot

Popular Chinese start-up Xiaomi is reportedly planning to launch two new devices Redmi 2 and Mi Pad in India on 12 March

Last week, Xiaomi had begun a promotional campaign with a word-puzzle contest on Facebook with winners standing a chance of getting priority passes for the new product's flash sale scheduled to kick-off in India later this month.

Back then, based on solved word puzzle, many predicted the new device to be the Redmi 2, but now new evidence has surfaced hinting, Xiaomi might announce a second device, probably Mi Pad.[Check out our solved word-puzzle.]

In the puzzle, we have come across two contradictory words -- Snapdragon and Nvidia Kepler -- and both are completely different chipsets, so we believe that Xiaomi might announce two devices Redmi 2 (with Snapdragon 410 series processor) and Mi Pad which houses the Nvidia's Kepler SoC (System on Chip).

As of now, Xiaomi is yet to respond to the media on whether the company will be launching two devices or not. It is just a matter of few days until we finally know for sure what Xiaomi has in store for us.
