The company is trying its best to woo consumers by releasing several video teasers and showing the beautiful selfies the upcoming Y series phone captured. Till date, all the Redmi Y series phones – including the Redmi Y1 and the Redmi Y2 — are about selfie camera. The Redmi Y3 will be no exception. It will also be mostly about good selfies.As teased by the company itself, the key highlight of the Redmi Y3 will be its selfie camera — which apparently will sit on a waterdrop notch or dot drop notch. Xiaomi India has confirmed that the Redmi Y2 successor will come with a 32-megapixel selfie shooter and will be able to click flawless selfies. The company is continuously teasing the capabilities of the 32-megapixel camera via new teaser videos almost every other day. In addition to the selfie camera, the company is also teasing other aspects of the Redmi Y3 like design, drop dot notch, core hardware, and battery.

The landing page also reveals some of the key details of the all-new Y series phones.advertisementLet’s take a quick look at everything we know about the upcoming Redmi Y series phone so far:–32-megapixel selfie camera: This will be the key highlight of the Redmi Y3. Xiaomi has been teasing the Redmi Y3 selfie camera for quite some time now. The company says that the phone will be able to click unbeatable Instagram worthy selfies. The company is teasing the front camera of the upcoming Redmi Y series phone with the hashtag #32MPSuperSelfie. In fact, the company has also come together with Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh and released a teaser video. In the video, Singh claims that the selfie camera of the new Redmi Y series phone clicks flawless selfies. Xiaomi is yet to reveal which sensor the company is planning to use for its selfie camera or whether it will use Pixel binning technology to shoot selfies similar to how the 48-megapixel camera of the Redmi Note 7 Pro works. Xiaomi India says that Redmi Y3 will “stand out from the crowd” and will be capable of clicking “ultra-clear selfie day and night”.–Dot drop notch: Like some of the previously launched Redmi phones this year, the upcoming Y series Redmi phone is also teased to come packed with a waterdrop notch on the top of the display, which Xiaomi calls Dot drop notch. The presence of waterdrop notch means the bezels on the upcoming Redmi Y series will be much slimmer when compared to the predecessor Redmi Y2.–Gradient finish: The landing page of the Redmi Y series phone is already listed on the Amazon website. The page suggests that the Redmi Y series phone may come with gradient finish or aura design, as Xiaomi may like to call it. The Amazon page shows the Nebula Red tone which suggests that the Redmi Y3 may also come in beautiful colours similar to the Redmi Note 7 series.–Redmi Note 7 series-like design: Overall, it seems the Redmi Y3 may look like the Redmi Note 7 or the Redmi Note 7 Pro. This suggests that the Redmi Y3 may come with Gorilla Glass 5 coating on both front and back, gradient finish, premium design, drop dot notch, slim bezels, and Redmi by Xiaomi logo on the back side of the phone.–Big battery: In one of the teasers, Xiaomi Redmi has teased the battery of the Redmi Y series phone. The teaser reveals that the Redmi Y3 can last longer than one can expect. This also means that the Redmi Y3 will sport a much bigger battery compared to the predecessor Redmi Y2, which includes 3080mAh battery. We believe the Redmi Y3 may come with the same battery setup as the Redmi Note 7 series – 4000mAh.advertisement–Snapdragon processor: The landing page of Amazon notes that the Redmi Y series phone will come with Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm. To recollect, the Redmi Y2 comes with Snapdragon 625 processor. Considering the Redmi Y3 is a successor to the Redmi Y2 we expect the phone to be powered by a much powerful processor. How about Xiaomi brings its favourite Snapdragon 636 to Redmi Y3? Or maybe Snapdragon 660 like the Redmi Note 7.–Fingerprint sensor: The Amazon India teaser also reveals that the Redmi Y3 will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that will sit next to the back camera setup.–Dual rear cameras: The Amazon India teaser also reveals that the Redmi Y3 will come with two cameras on the back panel paired with a single LED flash.–The Redmi Y3 is already up with the Notify Me button on Amazon India. Interested buyers can click on it and get updated when the phone comes in stock.As of now, Xiaomi hasn’t revealed any further details about the Redmi Y3. Overall, considering the teasers so far we believe the Redmi Y3 will be a much-upgraded version of the Redmi Y2, which launched in India last year, in terms of specifications, design, performance, camera, battery and almost every other aspect.Redmi Y2 specsAs for the specs, the Redmi Y2 comes with a 5.99-inch full-screen display with 1440x720p resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. On the hardware front, the Redmi Y2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor paired with up to 4GB RAM + 64GB storage which can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. The Redmi Y2 includes a 16-megapixel selfie camera on the front, while on the back the phone includes a 12MP+5MP AI dual rear camera configuration.
