Looks like Redmi Y3 will not be the only device that Xiaomi will be launching on April 24. The Chinese smartphone brand seems to have a surprise handset in store for its fans at the launch event. Xiaomi India’s Global Vice President and MD Manu Kumar Jian has hinted that the company may also launch its Redmi 7 smartphone in India on the same day. Yesterday, Jain posted a picture on his official Twitter handle with the highlighted number ‘7’ which may be a hint about the upcoming Redmi 7.
Other than this, tipster Ishan Agarwal has hinted that the Redmi 7 smartphone could be launched in India in the coming weeks. And with the upcoming launch of the selfie-camera centric smartphone, the Redmi Y3 just days away, the Redmi 7 too is expected to be launched at the same event. To recall, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro together at the same event in February this year. So, it won’t be a surprise if the company did the same thing again.
In his Twitter post, Jain highlighted the 7 million sold devices of the Redmi Y-series, but his post also highlighted the number ‘7’ multiple times. He also went on to write “But Y 7? RT if you’ve cracked this puzzle”, his statement could refer to the Redmi 7 smartphone which is the successor of the Redmi 6. It should be noted that Redmi 7 has already been launched in China last month, so it would be obvious for Xiaomi to launch the device in India, as it is a very important market for it.
Moreover, tipster Ishan Agarwal last month tweeted that the Redmi 7 could be launched by Xiaomi in India soon. And as mentioned above, we could see the launch of the device when the Redmi Y3 launches in India next week.

Generation Y loved everything about #Redmi Y series & this is a testament in itself.
