Xiaomi previous year announced its first-ever Selfie-centric device lineup with Redmi y1 and y1 lite. A report on MySmartPrice also claims that Redmi 6, Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 Pro exist and the smartphones will be launched in the coming months. In comparison, Redmi Y2 offers notable upgrades and improvements over its predecessor. The 14nm Snapdragon 625 chipset and 3,080mAh battery powers the smartphone.

MIUI 10's preloaded camera app is also capable of recognizing Paytm's QR codes which is undoubtedly the most widely used digital payment service in India right now. It also features a 5MP secondary rear camera to capture depth information for AI portrait shots.

Like its predecessor, the Redmi Y2 sports a 16MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture powered by artificial intelligence (yes, why not!). The phone doesn't have a fast charging support. On the design front, the new Redmi Y2 looks similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Eligible Mi devices include the Mi Mix 2, Mi 6, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 5s, Mi 5, Mi 4, Mi 3, Mi Note 2, Mi Max 2, and Mi Max. Mostly because of the high resolution selfie camera and the dual camera setup on the back.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y2 has a metallic body that features prominent antenna bands at the top and bottom edges of the rear shell.

Two new Xiaomi smartphones have been spotted on certification websites. The Redmi Y2 has 3/4GB RAM along with 32/64GB internal storage. You get an internal storage of 64GB.

The Redmi Y2 will be launched in India in this June. In India, the handset is priced at Rs 9,999 for the base model and Rs 12,999 for the higher end version. The price is just a bit higher than the Redmi Y1, which starts at Rs. 8,999 ($133). Xiaomi has also revealed timelines for the MIUI 10 launch of the China Developer ROM along with the list of eligible devices. This version brings a number of improvements, including better support for displays.

As mentioned earlier, the device is being branded as a selfie-phone.

In other Xiaomi news, the Mi 8 SE will go on sale on June 8.

Like other recently released Xiaomi phones, this one also adopts the 18:9 aspect ratio.
