Xiaomi’s latest smartphone, the Redmi Y2 will be available for purchase through Amazon India at 12 PM today. Like last week, the Redmi Y2 will be available through a flash sale only. The smartphone can be grabbed in three colour options- Dark Grey, Gold and Rose Gold. Xiaomi has launched the device in two variants- one with 3GB of RAM & 32GB of internal storage and the other one with 4GB of RAM & 64GB of internal storage. The base variant is priced at 9,999, whereas the 4GB RAM variant will be available for purchase at Rs 12,999. Alongside Amazon India, Xiaomi will be parallelly conducting a flash sale on its own portal- Mi.com at the same 12 PM today. The phone is already available for purchase at Mi Home stores across the country.


Xiaomi Redmi Y2 Specifications and Features
The Redmi Y2 resembles a lot to the Redmi Note 5 in terms of on-paper specifications. The smartphone sports a 5.99-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. Internally, the phone sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, coupled with 3GB/32GB of storage and 4GB/64GB of storage. There’s a dedicated microSD card as well for storage expansion up to 128GB.

Sadly, this device doesn’t support dual 4G and it lacks 5GHz Wi-Fi support too. The phone measures 8.1mm in thickness and weighs 170 grams. The Redmi Y2 is Xiaomi’s first smartphone in India to boot Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, topped by MIUI 9.5. The fingerprint scanner is present at the rear side, while the users can unlock the handset from the front using the Face Unlock functionality.


Cameras in the Redmi Y2 include a 12MP primary sensor to the back with f/2.2 aperture, 1.25-micron pixels and PDAF. There’s a secondary 5MP depth sensor which helps in adding the bokeh effect to the images. The camera also has support for Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS). The Redmi Y2 is being touted as a selfie-centric smartphone because it has a 16MP shooter on the front with several AI-based camera tricks such as portrait mode, beauty mode and more.

The phone offers 4G LTE, VoLTE, dual SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS and a micro USB port as connectivity options. The device is armed with a 3080mAh battery which lacks fast charging support.

Two year old SOC, pathetic battery, disgusting resolution. Looks like Xiaomi is trying to sell off all its SD625 SoCs. It’s becoming the new Samsung now.

Or they have to use mediatek processors just like they have used in redmi 6a and redmi 6, with Project treble there will be less issues of software support for phones with mediatek processors

Xiaomi won’t do that since they are banned from using mediatek processors in India.

I hope Xiaomi doesn’t flood India with mediatek devices. I really don’t like their GPUs much.

They will come with snapdragon processors for Redmi 6 and 6A? Snapdragon 460 and 435 respectively?

SD 435 sucks in comparison to MTK A22..
28nm die size is just a thing of past now…

I don’t like Mediatek!!!!!Snapdragon 650 and 652 are far better than Mediatek!!!!!

But P60 is way better than them especially coz of the dedicated NPU…

They can’t give sd 636 at that price, so they used the best possible one 625, even now new sd 400 series are underclocked versions of sd625, they have to wait till new Qualcomm Snapdragon processors announced, like sd640 and sd460 with custom kyro cores, sd 460 will have x12 lte modem so it will support dual4g volte which is not present in sd450 and 625

They could easily have used SD630 but they didn’t, indicating they are in rush mode to sell off old stocks.

And not to forget the Realme devices which just blasts all SD625 devices out of the water with it’s terrific performance.

Have you never heard about Asus Zenfone Max Pro? It’s giving SD636 with 40% bigger battery and full HD+ display and a comparable camera performance for just 1k more.

An ancient processor. I wouldn’t be surprised if Xiaomi will be selling this trash processor based phones 10 years from now.
