Redmi Y2: Amazon Prime Day Offer
Amazon Prime Day is going to start on the 16th of July and the Redmi Y2 is going to be sold exclusively on Amazon India. The offer includes an Instant Discount of 10% on HFDC Credit and Debit cards, along with EMIs.

Redmi Y2: Specifications, Features
Xiaomi’s Redmi Y2 will be shipped to you bearing a 5.99-inch 1440 x 720 HD+ resolution display and an 18:9 aspect ratio. While it may not feature an OLED screen, its IPS LCD screen technology is able to claim maximum brightness, so you can use the smartphone comfortably outdoors. The performance of the smartphone comes from the 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, with the same chipset being easily found in devices like the Redmi Note 5.
The processor includes an octa-core running at 2.0GHz, along with an Adreno 506 GPU. There are two RAM and storage models of the Redmi Y2. One features 3GB RAM + 32GB storage while the other one will get 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. There is also a microSD card slot space to further expand your storage up to 256GB, but if you are not going to purchase a storage card, we strongly suggest that you pick up the 64GB internal memory version.
The Redmi Y2 also has a 12 + 5MP dual-camera that is in the same place as devices like the Mi MIX 2S, the iPhone X, and the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Camera features of the Redmi Y2 include taking images with an attractive bokeh effect through software. The camera is capable of capturing HDR images and uses AI for beautifying images, such as your selfies. The software AI is fine-tuned for users living in India and can effortlessly recognize cultural things such as nose rings, and bindi while beautifying images.
At the front of the phone is a 16MP selfie cam with a soft LED flash to help take decent pictures in low-light. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that you can use to unlock the smartphone. A wide range of connectivity options allows the Redmi Y2 to feature the Wi-Fi 802/11 a/b/g/n standard, with Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS, microUSB 2.0 charging port, IR blaster and of course, 4G VoLTE support.
The battery is a 3080mAh capacity, with 10W charging support but the smartphone does not get support for wireless charging but you also have to take into account the price of the device.
