Redmi Y3 is set to launch in India on April 24. Notably, the Redmi Y-series is a youth and selfie-focused lineup from Xiaomi, and mirrors the Redmi S-series from China. Just days ahead of its formal debut, the Redmi phone has been teased to come with a 4,000mAh battery. This is notably a significant jump from the 3,080mAh battery featured on the Redmi Y2. Xiaomi has also separately revealed that the Redmi Y3 will sport a gradient back panel with a mix of Blue, Purple, and Yellow colours. The Redmi Y3 is already confirmed to come with a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Xiaomi through the Redmi India Twitter account on Thursday released a teaser video that confirms the presence of a 4,000mAh battery on the Redmi Y3. It is touted to last at least more than a day.
The teased battery capacity of the Redmi Y3 is bigger than the 3,080mAh battery powering the Redmi Y2 ₹ 8,999. Also, it is in line with the battery pack available on the recently launched Redmi Note 7 Pro ₹ 17,999 and Redmi Note 7 ₹ 11,198. The Redmi Y3 price in India can be expected to be around the Redmi Y2 price.
Alongside the battery pack, the Redmi India Twitter account featured an image suggesting the gradient back of the Redmi Y3. The phone appears to have a gradient finish with a colour combination of Blue, Purple, and Yellow. Of course, we can expect other colour options as well.
Xiaomi through its past teasers confirmed that the Redmi Y3 will come with a 32-megapixel selfie camera. This is likely to be Samsung’s 32-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GD1 sensor that was announced back in October last year.
The Redmi Y3 also recently got listed on Amazon.in with a ‘Notify Me’ button. However, it is formally set to launch in India on April 24.
Redmi Y3 price in India (expected)
Considering the launch prices of the Redmi Y2 and the Redmi Y1, which were Rs. 9,999 and Rs. 8,999 respectively, we can expect the Redmi Y3 price in India to also start at around the Rs. 9,999 mark. This will pit it against the Redmi Note 7 and the Realme U1.
