Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand is getting a new family member. Meet the new Xiaomi Redmi Y3, a midrange device aimed towards selfie lovers.

The key highlight feature of the Xiaomi Redmi Y3 is its 32-megapixel front-facing camera, which comes supplemented with features like Auto HDR, on-screen flash, portrait selfie, and 80-degree wide group selfies.


Similar to the Redmi 7, the Y3 will have a 12-megapixel primary shooter on the back that’s coupled by a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Xiaomi was also generous enough to throw in a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on this one.

All the specs head out there would also appreciate its Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 octa-core processor and its large 4,000mAh battery. It’s then available in 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB RAM and storage configurations.


The design is pretty much identical to its brothers like the Redmi Note 7. It has a ‘Dot Notch” on top of its 6.26-inch HD+ screen, and similar color gradient tones with the addition of the new ‘Aurora Prism Design’.
