Xiaomi had launched its Y-series smartphones few years back with the Redmi Y1 followed by the Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Lite. The Y-series devices of Xiaomi were focused mainly on the youth and the device came with a good selfie-centric camera with front LED flash. After the launch of the Redmi Y1 the company came up with another device named Redmi Y2, which followed the Y1’s footprints as it too was focuses the youth.
Till now Xiaomi had not launched another device in the Redmi Y-series and neither had it announced any device for the line-up. But, recently the Redmi Y3 was seen on the Wi-Fi certification revealing certain specifications about the smartphone.
According to a Wi-Fi Alliance listing, the Redmi Y3 has received the Wi-Fi certification, but the launch date of the device is still a mystery. The listing doesn’t reveal much about the device other than the fact that the device will be supporting the Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. The Redmi Y3 holds the model number M1810F6G and it runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. The listing was first spotted by MySmartPrice and other details about the Redmi Y3 is currently not known, the company too hasn’t revealed anything about the device.
The Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi had launched the Redmi Y2 (Redmi S2 in China) back in June 2018 and it came with a price tag of Rs 10,499 for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant. However, now the device sells for Rs 8,999 for the 3GB RAM variant. The Redmi Y2 was powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC and it sported a 5.99-inch HD display. It came with a 3GB RAM and a 4GB RAM variant with varying price tag under Rs 15,000 mark. But with the Redmi Y3 appearance on the Wi-Fi Alliance listing, the launch of the device is imminent and it could be announced in the coming months.
Just like its predecessor, the Redmi Y3 might be powered by a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU like the Snapdragon 632 or the Snapdragon 636. Also, Redmi Y3 could hold a better back camera. Similar to its predecessor, which was a selfie-centric device, the Redmi Y3 too could hold a good front shooter with LED front flash.
The Redmi Y2 held a 16MP AI camera so there is a possibility that the Redmi Y3 could hold a bigger megapixel camera with more selfie capturing features and camera modes to assist the selfie-loving troop. If launched, the Redmi Y3 should be priced somewhere around the Redmi Note 7 mark, which starts at Rs 9,999.
