Redmi Y3 Specifications
The Redmi Y3 much like the Redmi 7 gets a 6.26-inch HD+ display (1520x720pixels) with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and ditches the large bezels on last year’s Redmi Y2 for waterdrop, and what is more, the device offers p2i water-repellent coating making it splash proof and a so-called Aura Prism rear design.
The device retains the rear fingerprint sensor as well as the dual-camera setup – a primary 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash along with a secondary 2-megapixel camera for capturing depth information in portrait shots and AI scene detection, similar to the Redmi 7, but this comes with a 32-megapixel camera on the front with 4-in-1 pixel binning technology, AI portraits and AI face unlock. The front camera also offers auto HDR, palm shutter gestures, electronic stabilization, and the firm’s software-driven portrait mode. The Redmi Y2 for reference sake features a 16MP camera, 12MPprimary rear sensor but with a 5MP.
There are a couple of noteworthy upgrades under the hood too. The Y3 drops the SD 625 chipset in favour of the Snapdragon 632 chipset and comes in same 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and 32GB or 64GB of expandable storage configurations. The device is powered by a massive 4,000mAh battery while it will boot Android 9 Pie OS, and MIUI 10 skin out of the box.
