Xiaomi has already confirmed to launch its new Redmi Y series smartphone on April 24th in India. Just like the earlier launched Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y2 smartphones, the upcoming Redmi Y3 will also be a selfie-centric device. We also expect the company to launch the low-cost Redmi 7 smartphone alongside the Redmi Y3 in India. The first teaser has officially confirmed the Redmi Y3 to feature 32MP selfie camera and a waterdrop notch display. Today, the company also revealed the device to be backed by a 4,000mAh battery non-removable battery which is mentioned to give up to two days of battery life.
Looking at the newly launched Redmi Note 7 & Redmi Note 7 Pro, we don’t expect the company to provide a fast charging adapter with the device. However, the battery capacity on this device is certainly an upgrade when compared to the 3,080mAh battery on all the previously launched Redmi Y smartphones. The Redmi Y3 also comes with a glossy finish body and might be available in gradient color options. It should be running on the latest Android 9.0 Pie based MIUI 10 out of the box. Also, expect to see ads filled within the UI and also the pre-installed apps.
The company introduced the Redmi Y series by launching the Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite smartphones. However, it later ditched the Lite variant and only launched the Redmi Y2 smartphone in 2018. It came with a metal body and is powered by the company’s favorite Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor. Even the upcoming Redmi Y3 is also teased to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. The Redmi Y2 with 18:9 display offered 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup on the rear and a 16MP selfie camera on the front. Now, the upcoming Redmi Y3 is also expected to come with dual rear cameras.
It might even come with P2i nanocoating which makes the device splash proof. While the Xiaomi Redmi Y3 is already listed on Amazon India, it will also be sold via Mi.com and Mi Home stores. Though Xiaomi still claims to be the largest smartphone brand in India, it is facing heat from Samsung and Realme. In the coming days, we can also expect Realme to come up with a successor to its selfie-centric Realme U1 smartphone. On the other hand, Samsung’s new Galaxy M and Galaxy A smartphones have been quite popular among the Indian smartphone users.
