Overview

Redmi debuted in the country in 2014 and soon grew to be a household name thanks to its durable and reliable smartphones that offered great flagship features at almost half the price. The Redmi Y series is targeted at the young generation and the Redmi Y2 is the second iteration of smartphones in this series. Boasting a 5.9" IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 269ppi, the Redmi Y2 promises a great multimedia experience thanks to its clear and distortion-free loudspeakers.

Powered by a Snapdragon 625 and an Adreno 506, the Redmi Y2 performs great as an overall device handling most daily tasks without a hiccup. On the camera front, the Y2 has a dual-camera setup on its rear consisting of a 12mp sensor alongside a 5mp depth sensor for optimum image quality.
