Talking about the highlight, the 32-megapixel snapper Redmi Y3 would be a big improvement over the Redmi Y2 which features a 16-megapixel sensor. Reports suggest that it will be Samsung’s GD1 which offers HDR enhancement as recently seen on the Vivo V15 Pro as well. At the back, the Redmi Y3 is tipped to feature the same dual-rear camera setup of 12-megapixel + 2-megapixel like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7.
In the software department, the smartphone will most likely come with Android 9 Pie based MIUI 10 custom skin. To keep things ticking, a 4,000mAh battery with fast charging feature is likely to be in tow. Connectivity features such as Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, 4G VoLTE, and dual-SIM card slots are expected. There is no word on the pricing yet, but considering it will compete with the Realme U1, the Redmi Y3 could start at a price tag of under Rs 15,000.
Sure, the under Rs 15,000 smartphone segment is getting heated up and OEMs are targeting different features to cater to different audience. It will be interesting to see how the smartphone fares with its competitors.
