The Redmi series makes for some of the most popular Xiaomi products in and outside of China. Currently, the series is headed by the Redmi 2 and the Redmi Note, and a successor to the latter is due since a while.
From what it appears right now, Xiaomi is well aware of that and is currently prepping a successor aka the Redmi Note 2. The device — allegedly codenamed Xiaomi H3Y — will allegedly mark the return of MediaTek chipsets on Xiaomi phones, something that the company has shied away from after a fiasco.
Also, it looks like the recent MT67xx series of 64-bit SoCs from MediaTek have played a major role in the Taiwan fabricator a hot favourite. Almost all devices we revired that were powered by the MT6732 and MT6752 have received positive feedback!

Coming back to the Redmi Note 2, besides sporting a MediaTek chip — allegedly the MT6795 — the phone will also have a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 13 mega-pixel main camera and an 8 mega-pixel/5 mega-pixel front facer. More interestingly, it’ll be, if the leaks turn out to be true, one of the first phones (after the LeTV series) to sport reversible USB connectors — USB Type-C.
