Soon, Xiaomi Mi A2 May Launch in India

Earlier today, Xiaomi India launched the new smartphone Redmi Y2 with prices starting from Rs. 9,999. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, with Xiaomi's MIUI 9.5 on top.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is the all new selfie-centric smartphone that has arrived as a successor for Redmi Y1.

The rear side of the phone features a fingerprint sensor which can be also used for snapping selfie shots. The hardware is familiar, but the addition of face unlock and a retooled front camera make it a strong contender in this category.

Xiaomi has ruled the budget smartphone market nearly unchallenged for several years now.

Redmi Y2 is packed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, which is coupled with Adreno 506 GPU, and 3GB/4GB RAM. On the front, users get a 16-megapixel front camera with auto-HDR and AI Beautify 4.0 feature.

The handset features a 5.99-inch FHD (1440x720) with 18:9 aspect ratio and 70.8 % NTSC colour gamut. If you want more RAM, there is a 6GB RAM version available, and it is cheaper than the Moto Z3 Play's global price but sadly, it is not available in India.

In terms of optics, the Redmi Y2 sports a vertically stacked dual camera setup on the back, with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor that come with a 1.25 micron pixel size and AI-based capabilities. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.

Recent reports have indicated that the Xiaomi Redmi 6 will be coming in three variants-one low-end Redmi 6A, generic Redmi 6 and a top-end Redmi 6 Plus (or Pro). Telecom partner Airtel is offering Rs. 1800 instant cashback and up to 240GB free data. Meanwhile, the 12MP + 5MP shooters at the back boast of 1.25μm large pixels, PDAF, and an AI portrait mode. ICICI credit card and debit card users will get Rs 500 off during the first sale offer. Connectivity options onboard the smartphone include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, IR blaster, FM Radio, GPS/ A-GPS, micro USB port, and 3.5mm audio jack. The device comes with a 4500K selfie light which Xiaomi claims can produce white light similar to what we see in our surroundings. The 3 GB RAM/ 32 GB storage variant is priced at INR 9,999, while the 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage variant would cost you INR 12,999. The latest version of Xiaomi's custom skin brings many new features and improvements to the table.
