Xiaomi Redmi Y2 to be launched today, this is what we know


But unlike the a year ago, the difference between it and the competing Note device isn't as much. It has a huge 5.99-inch screen. The device has now made its way to India as the Redmi Y2 with most of its specs and design elements intact. Though the e-commerce giant didn't reveal which smartphone Xiaomi will reveal. The design itself is slightly altered, and the antenna bands no longer intersect the camera module. A case will be shipped with the box. Users will be able to watch the unveiling of the new Redmi Y2 on Xiaomi's official website, mi.com. In India, the handset is priced at Rs 9,999 for the base model and Rs 12,999 for the higher end version. The company has already announced the MIUI 10 that will be coming over the next few weeks. The selfie snapper has 16 MP sensor with 4-in-1 pixel binning, f/2.0 lens and has some AI abilities. It has AI portrait selfie support, allowing users to click portrait selfies using the front camera. At the left, it has SIM card slot where you get two SIM card slots and one dedicated microSD card slot. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, in my opinion, is the phone behind that success.

The Y2 also comes equipped with the same core hardware, with the 625 SoC running the show.

In this comparison, we are going to focus only on the rear cameras, as that is an important part of one's decision when purchasing a brand new smartphone. I haven't seen any slowdowns on the Redmi Y2, and I've been using the version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. But when you compare it to the other phone in their lineup, this phone does not give you a great value.

To recall, the Redmi S2 got unveiled in China last month. The Redmi 6 is said to ship with a 5.45-inch display, while the Redmi Note 6 will feature a 5.84-inch panel, according to TENAA. The most striking aspect of the Redmi 5 is the fact that it's the most affordable bezel-less phone with an 18:9 aspect ratio in the Indian market right now.
