Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has been teasing its upcoming the Redmi Y3 smartphone for a few weeks now. The smartphone is said to feature a 32MP selfie camera and the company has also revealed that it will be launching the Redmi Y3 on April 24. However, days before the launch of the device in India, the company teased that that upcoming Redmi Y3 will pack a 4,000mAh battery.
Xiaomi took to its official Redmi India handle on Twitter to post a teaser video which showed that the upcoming Redmi Y3 will pack a 4,000mAh battery. And it is expected that the battery of the Redmi Y3 could give more than a day’s worth of battery backup. It should also be noted that the predecessor of the handset – Redmi Y2 – came with a 3,080mAh battery. So, a 4,000mAh battery is a significant jump that Xiaomi is adding to the device.
It is being considered as a good move from Xiaomi as now more handsets are coming with a larger battery backup so that their users can get more on-screen time from their smartphones. Moreover, the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro, both of which are mid-range smartphones from Xiaomi, housed a 4,000mAh battery too. So, it is obvious that Xiaomi is playing on the safer side and packing the Redmi Y3 with the same battery capacity. However, as of now we don’t know if the Redmi Y3 will have fast charging support or not.
In a separate teaser, the Chinese smartphone brand also revealed that the Redmi Y3 will have a gradient back panel which will be a mix of Blue, Purple and Yellow. But other than the gradient option, the device will come in other colours as well. The company has also teased about the Redmi Y3 coming with a 32MP selfie camera. It has also been said that the selfie camera of the smartphone will use Samsung’s 32-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GD1 sensor that the South Korean technology company had announced last year in October.

Before the official launch of the Redmi Y3, Amazon India has listed the smartphone on its platform with a ‘Notify Me’ button so that the users can get notified once the device launches and is available for purchase. As mentioned above, the official launch date of the Redmi Y3 in India is April 24.
