Xiaomi Redmi Y3 - middling with a super-selfie camera

Xiaomi has introduced the Redmi Y3 model in the Indian market.

The smartphone has a 32-megapixel self-camera, and this is its main difference from the Redmi 7 that appeared earlier and is already being sold, including on the Russian market.

The second difference is the price. The Indian market will get a smartphone for almost nothing - from 9,999 rupees (9,160 AUD) for the younger version (3 + 32 GB) at the start of sales. The official Russian price tag of the same configuration Redmi 7 - 11990 ₽. If you search, however, you can find for 8220 rubles.

Finally, smartphones can be distinguished by color. Redmi Y3 is available in a deaf black version and iridescent cinnamon and crimson. Redmi 7 is quieter.

The rest of the models are identical. Screen - IPS 6.26 ″ fullHD + with drop-shaped notch, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Protection from water is also foreseen - Redmi Y3 cannot be bathed, but at least there is a water-repellent nanocoating.

The processor is usable. The memory has two options: 3 GB + 32 GB and 4 + 64 GB. The battery is good - 4000 mAh. The main camera is double - 12 MP f / 2.2 with a PDAF autofocus + 2 MP. There is a fingerprint scanner. SIM card and memory card slot is normal, you don’t need to donate anything.

Despite the fact that Redmi Y3 is represented in India, B20 / 7/3 is included in the LTE frequency selection set, which is far from always.

Start of sales - April 30.
