Xiaomi launches Redmi Y2 smartphone, MIUI 10 OS in India

Xiaomi Y2 Soon, Xiaomi Mi A2 May Launch in India

The Y2 is the successor to the Redmi Y1 which was launched previous year and was focused on the selfie-loving youth by integrating a 16 MP camera.

As mentioned above, the design isn't different as compared to the previously announced Xiaomi phones. The phones metal unibody design. For, example, the brand has introduced gesture controls, which is although a blunt rip-off of iPhone X gesture-based navigation, it is quite useful. Still, there is enough space below the display. It will also be available across offline partners at a later date. At the right, it has volume rocker and power button. You'll still get a day's worth of usage easily, and more often than not the Redmi Y2 will be able to deliver a two-day battery life. The base side has speaker and microUSB port. The company hasn't specified if it has any kind of display protection or not. Besides, MIUI 10 will provide a much more productive experience with a completely redesigned recent apps menu showing up to 5 apps in one screen.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor along with Adreno 506 GPU.

3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage/4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

It comes with 32GB/64GB inbuilt storage, expandable via micro-SD.

Rafael Nadal beats Dominic Thiem to win record 11th Roland Garros title
The score may have looked rather routine but there was some drama in the third set when Nadal called for the trainer at 2-1, 30-0. One down-the-line forehand victor landed right at the baseline and Thiem's shoulders sagged as he muttered to himself.

The phone features dual camera where it has 12 megapixels primary sensor and 5 megapixels secondary sensor. For selfies and video calling, there is a 16-megapixel AI-powered front camera which comes with a dedicated portrait mode to add those bokeh effects to your selfies.

The rear camera is touted to have AI Portrait mode, HDR, and Panoramic mode. I tested the camera and end result was impressive. And an ever-better offering for users looking for above average camera performance below the Rs 10k mark. Also, Airtel is providing a cash Rs. 1,800 as well as up to 240 GB of data for free through both online buying platforms.

Its connectivity options include dual SIM, 4G LTE with VoLTE support, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. However, you might not need it thanks to the massive 5000mAh battery of the phone.

However, the cameras that it packs is definitely better than the one found on the Redmi Note 5. I used the Redmi Y2 for a few days in Taiwan - where it gets just as bright as India - and I had zero issues reading the contents of the screen under harsh sunlight. But be prepared to be okay with an HD+ display if you go for the Y2. Instead, they run along the top and bottom edges of the phone, giving it a cleaner look at the back.

Night time, well, I'm not even going to get into that.
