Hi guys, we are back with latest news and reviews. today we will show you the newly launched Xiaomi Redmi Y2 Reviews.
It is intriguing how the selfie-taking capabilities of a phone have spurred a whole new line-up of phones across manufacturers. Following in the footsteps of ‘Selfie Experts’ like OPPO, Xiaomi too introduced their Y series of phones last year. Promising excellent front-facing cameras in addition to robust internals, the Redmi Y1 saw quite a bit of success. So it is fairly obvious why Xiaomi has introduced a second generation model ie the Xiaomi Redmi y2 today. Follow along for the full review.

here the specifications of the Redmi Y2 this handset has just been launched in India for Rs. 9,999. Redmi Y2 is Snapdragon 625 octa-core powered and comes in 3GB/32GB or 4GB/64GB RAM/ROM options. A key attraction is the 16MP AI camera on the front and 12MP + 5MP dual cameras on the rear.
Coming to the camera on the rear there is 12MP+5MP AI (Artificial Intelligence) dual camera and on the front, there is 16MP AI camera. Camera quality is excellent, it can shoot FHD videos and there is stabilization too, pretty good. Low light shots are decent enough. Edge detection is very good.
Build and Design:
Button placement has not changed either and neither has the placement of the micro USB port and the single, bottom-firing speaker. You also get a 3.5 mm headphone jack and an IR blaster on top. And you also get the same dual-SIM tray.
Following the 2018 trend of taller displays, the Redmi Y2 gets an upgrade from a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display to a 5.99-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. But thankfully, there’s no notch. Unfortunately, the resolution hasn’t improved much. It’s now HD instead of HD+, but that’s only because the display is taller now.
The Redmi Y1 last year was the device with which Xiaomi introduced MIUI 9, and the Y2 comes with the same, only this time with Android Oreo 8.1 and the May Security patch running on top. This makes it the first Xiaomi device to ship in India with Android Oreo 8.1. MIUI 10 is just around the corner, though.
While the Y2 does boast of coming with Oreo, there aren’t any of the usual features which you associate with it present on the phone. There are no long-press options, no visible changes in the notification shade, etc. The interface is otherwise very fluid and, in typical Xiaomi fashion, the animations have been optimized to perfection.
The 3080 mAh battery takes about 2 hours for a full charge and will last for one to one and a half day of battery life based on your usage.
