Redmi Y2

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 smartphone Launched at Rs 9,999 MIUI 10 Introduced in India

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi launched Redmi S2, the selfie-focused smartphone on May 10.

The Redmi Y2 will go on sale exclusively on Amazon India and Mi India e-store from 12th June 2018. Offered in two variants, the former gets 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage whereas the latter sports 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which is priced at Rs. 12,999. Even though this phone has a great value compared to other brands, the phone in their own lineup will likely be a bottleneck for the sales of this device.

Under the hood, the latest Redmi phone is backed by a 2 GHz clocked Octa core Snapdragon 625 chipset with Adreno 506 GPU. On the back, the device retains the Redmi Note 5's implementation of the dual-camera setup and the fingerprint sensor while the front houses a 5.99-inch 1280 x 720 display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The device also includes a 5.99-inch 18:9 display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 platform. Whether be it the placement of vertically-aligned dual rear cameras or the front panel, the phone looks a tad similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The beta of MIUI 10 will start rolling out in mid-June while the stable version would arrive in September. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details about the upcoming Xiaomi smartphones.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 accepts two SIMs (Nano), has a dedicated slot for the microSD card, and packs 3080mAh battery. The phone was the number one selling selfie camera in India as per the company.

The rear camera is 12MP+20MP with the 12MP sensor sporting f/1.5 aperture and Artificia Intelligence features. The battery is smaller as compared to Redmi Note 5 but it has HD+ display. The smartphone is also backed by a 3,080mAh battery and offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System as connectivity options.

The smartphone will ship in Gold, Rose gold and Grey colour variants. It should be noted that Redmi Y2 from Xiaomi will be a rebranded version of the Redmi S2, which was launched in China earlier this year. A 3,080 mAh battery is taking care of the daily usage and comes with a micro USB port.

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 is currently the best value for money smartphone available in India right now, and of course, when you get a value for money product, you've to struggle for getting your hands on it. Just for trivia, a rumour claims that Xiaomi launched in China one of the first SD 710 based smartphones codenamed Mi 8, almost a week ago. So, I don't think this phone is going to sell well in Nepal.
