Redmi Y2 with dual rear cameras launched in India

It's an all plastic build, brushed with a metallic finish.

Like its previous variants, the Redmi Y2 is supposed to be a youth-centric offering.

The first thing you will notice is the same design that we saw in Redmi Note 5 Pro. It has a huge 5.99-inch screen. Also, there is no Full-HD+ display as the Y2 has an HD+ panel. However, still considering the price range, the processor seems to be better than the rest of the competition.

As the name itself suggests, the smartphone comes with a mammoth 5000mAh battery, which will easily deliver two days worth of battery life on a single charge. The choice of microUSB over USB Type-C is disappointing though.

The phone comes with a bezel-less display with dual camera and AI-based 16mp camera at front.

For low-light photography, four different pixels will merge to form a Super Pixel that has a size of 2 microns. It's finally a good alternative to the Note lineup in the budget segment. Too much vanity, really. But you'd be buying this phone only if you're into the trend, so yeah, make yourself look better. For security, the Y2 features a rear mounted fingerprint scanner along with AI Face unlock. At the back is a dual-rear camera setup, which consist of a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. The dual camera employs AI for separating the foreground and background accurately for those bokeh shots. Diagonal display new items from Xiaomi amounted to 5.99 inches.

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, and runs on an Android Oreo 8.0 OS with MIUI 9.5 loaded on top.

The default browser on MIUI 10 comes with a dedicated tab for Progressive Web Apps from India-based services. MIUI seems to have taken a page from the Android P book and removed the on-screen soft key navigation buttons in favor of full-screen gestures. Borrowing specifications and design elements from China's Redmi S2, the Redmi Y2 will be available in India in Dark Grey, Rose Gold, and Gold colour variants.

At this price point, it competes against some of its own siblings.
