by June 2, 2018

Xiaomi, the Chinese manufacturer of mobile phones, is all set to launch the Redmi Y2 in India on June 7. The smartphone will be launched as an Amazon exclusive. The smartphone has already made appearances in teasers shown by Amazon. The teasers highlight the phone’s selfie-taking capabilities.

While there is no official confirmation on the name from either the smartphone maker or from Amazon, the possibility of the phone being the Redmi Y2 is very high. The phone is believed to the successor of the Redmi Y1 launched last year. If rumours are to be believed, then the Y2 may be rechristened as S2 in India. The S2 was recently launched by the company in China and Xiaomi believes that it is the best selfie phone that has been launched till date.

The Redmi Y2 or S2, whatever the final name may be, can be seen in the listing in Amazon with a “Notify me” option. This feature will enable the user to get a notification when the smartphone is available in stock for sale. The poster on Amazon India that is seen along with the listing of the smartphone reveals key details about the phone. The selfie-centricity of the device is highlighted, and it builds on the curiosity created by Xiaomi with the #FindYouSelfie hashtag. The poster also lays emphasis on the LED selfie light that complements the front camera. It will equip the Remi Y2/S2 to capture detailed and very clear selfies, even when the light is dim. “Click vivid pictures with the front-facing camera that also features an LED selfie light for detailed selfies,” suggests the Amazon poster.

The poster also gives insight into the dual camera setup at the rear. “You’ve got an eye for detail. So should your phone” is what the Amazon poster says. “The new smartphone from Xiaomi will help you capture more detail than usual, giving you bright, sharp and well-detailed photographs in all light conditions.” The statements indicate that the smartphone will be well-equipped on the camera aspects and will not miss out on details in any pictures that the users would capture. The Redmi S2 will have a dual camera system on the rear consisting of one 12-megapixel and another 5-megapixel sensor for portrait photography. The LED flash equipped front camera would be 16-megapixel.

Further, the poster goes on to suggest that the Xiaomi smartphone will launch on June 7 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The posters indicate a “blazing-fast” and “a smooth smartphone experience” while subtly pointing out to the presence of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The Redmi S2 is expected to come with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display. The bezel-less smartphone will come with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The resolution will be 720p+. The Redmi S2 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. It will be complemented with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

The Redmi S2 is fuelled by a 3,080mAh battery. It runs on Android Oreo-based MIUI 9 software.
