Xiaomi’s upcoming selfie-centric smartphone, the Redmi Y3 is scheduled to be launched tomorrow at an event in New Delhi. And before the launch of the device, it has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark website and most of the specifications of the handset have been listed. The listing shows that the Redmi Y3 will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 SoC and it will come with 3GB of RAM.
Some of the confirmed details about the Redmi Y3 is that it will sport a 32MP selfie camera, house a 4,000mAh battery, sport a gradient back panel, come with dual rear cameras and feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Yesterday, the company officially released a teaser video on its Twitter handle showcasing the Redmi Y3’s durability as it was pushed down a flight of stairs. The video confirmed the rear camera, gradient back as well as the presence of the rear fingerprint scanner. Here, we are listing down the expected specification of the upcoming Redmi Y3.
Redmi Y3 specifications (expected)
According to the Geekbench listing, the Redmi Y3 will is powered by the Snapdragon 625 SoC (MSM8953) paired with 3GB of RAM. But Redmi Y3 will also be launched in other variants with varying RAM and storage options much like its predecessor Redmi Y2.
It is should be noted that the company had already used the Snapdragon 625 SoC in its previous Redmi Y2, so using the same chipset in the successor of the device seems a little unlikely. Xiaomi has also used the same processor in Redmi Note 4 as well so that makes the chipset a dated one. But there is a possibility that Xiaomi might be adding some software enhancements to increase the performance of the upcoming Redmi Y3.

The Redmi Y3 will reportedly run Android 9 Pie skinned with MIUI 10 out-of-the-box. In terms of performance scores, the Redmi Y3 has scored 1,236 on the single-core and 4,213 on the multi-core testing on Geekbench website. The listing was spotted by technology blog Nashville Chatter and the upload date of the report on the website is listed as April 22.
However, since there is no official word on these specifications yet, we suggest you take them with a pinch of salt
Along with the launch of the Redmi Y3, the company is also expected to launch the Redmi 7 in the Indian market as well. Redmi 7 is the successor of the Redmi 6 and it was released in China earlier this year.
