Xiaomi has launched their latest mid-tier smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 in India. The Y2 is a selfie-centric phone boasting a 16MP front camera. The phone takes a lot of inspiration from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, which is a good thing. Priced at INR Rs. 9,999, here is everything the phone has to offer.
The Xiaomi Redmi Y2 packs a 5.99 inch HD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Encasing the internals of the phone is a metallic shell which gives the phone a premium look and feels. Under the hood, the phone packs an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset along with the Adreno 506 GPU. The processor is backed by 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage. The memory of the phone can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB. It also supports dual sim cards and is now 4G capable.
In the camera department, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 packs a dual-camera set up made by a 12MP and a 5MP lens. The phone also has a whopping 16MP front camera, accompanied by an LED flash, for all your selfies. Software-wise, the phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Xiaomi’s own custom skin, MIUI 10, overlaid on top of it. And finally powering this device all up is a 3080mAh non-user removable battery. This coupled with the low-res display will be enough to get users through a full day of moderate to heavy usage without any issues.
