New Delhi: Xiaomi Redmi Y2, successor to last year’s Redmi Y1, has been launched in India on Thursday at an event held in New Delhi. Key highlights of the Redmi Y2 include a vertical dual camera setup at the back, an AI-powered 16-megapixel selfie camera, Face Unlock capabilities, and an 18:9 display.
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. It is also the latest offering in the company youth-centric and selfie-focused Redmi Y-Series of smartphones.
To recall, the Redmi Y-Series was launched in India with the Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite last year; there is no such series in China, Xiaomi’s home country. The company also announced the MIUI 10 Global ROM at the event.
Redmi Y2 price in India has been set at Rs. 9,999 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage variant and Rs. 12,999 for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB onboard storage model. It will be available in Dark Grey, Gold, and Rose Gold. The smartphone will be made available on Amazon India, Mi.com, and Mi Home stores from June 12, while offline partner stores will get it in a few weeks. A case will be shipped with the box.
