Finally the successor of the Y1 comes to the market and Xiaomi just nailed it wit the dual camera setup like the Redmi note 5 pro and also with the new face unlock feature in the price of 10k INR. So let us see what are the specs included in it. The buy link will be given below at the bottom.

Display : Like other MI devices that released this year, this one also comes with 18:9 Full screen display and a screen resolution 1440 x 720 with 260 PPI.

Processor and Memory : Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset is used in this phone, which is again the same processor that is being used in Redmi Note 4 and Redmi Note 5.  The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 625 mobile platform uses leading-edge 14 nm technology to power premium experiences in high-tier smartphones without draining the battery. With features like support for full HD+ (1080p), an integrated Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X9 LTE modem, and Qualcomm® Adreno™ 506 PC-class graphics, the Snapdragon 625 is designed to provide fast connectivity, vibrant displays, and performance that’s both powerful and efficient. As usual there are 2 variants, one being the 3 GB RAM with 32 GB Internal Storage and the other being 4 GB RAM with 64 GB Internal Storage.

 

 

Camera : The phone has 3 cameras in total. The phone is knows for its 16 MP front camera with Selfie-light with automatic HDR and Precise bokeh effect powered by AI.
