The highlight of the Redmi Y2 is its photographic chops. For clicking selfies, the smartphone boasts a 16-megapixel snapper up front with f/2.0 aperture, Super Pixel, AI Beautify 4.0, and LED flash. At the back is a dual-camera setup that includes a 12-megapixel primary sensor, and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor.

The Redmi Y2 flaunts a 5.99-inch HD+ display with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio. There are no capacitive buttons, and users will be able to choose between on-screen buttons and Redmi Note 5-like gestures. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core chipset paired with Adreno 506 GPU. Making sure everything ticks is a 3,000mAh battery that Xiaomi claims is good enough to last a day on a single charge.

For security there is a fingerprint sensor placed at the back, or alternatively, you can also use the Face Unlock feature. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and micro-USB port. On the software front, the Redmi Y2 runs Android Oreo-based MIUI 9.5.
