Everyone knows that the HTC conference was held today, but almost everyone forgot about the presentation of new devices from Xiaomi. It turns out that this morning the Chinese concern showed the world a new series of smartphones Redmi Y, to which currently belong two models: Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite. I’m already really lost in the Xiaomi portfolio, it’s hard to remember all of their series.
Excellent price / performance ratio – this is the motto of Xiaomi when creating new devices. At the prices of new smartphones, you can see that the company adhered to its motto, because the price of Redmi Y1 is only $ 135 ($ 165 improved version), while Redmi Y1 Lite costs only 110 dollars. Devices, first of all, will go to India, but it is possible that in the future they will appear in other markets, including ours.
Xiaomi is well aware of the popularity of Selfie, which is why the most important component of the Redmi Y1 is the front camera. 16 Megapixel lens with aperture f / 2.0. Many will probably surprise, but the rear camera is really weaker – 13 Mp and f / 2.2. But given the price of this device, he can forgive a lot.
Quite interesting is the combination of the other parameters. Here stands Snapdragona 435 with 3/4 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of internal memory and a fingerprint scanner at the back. Well, what did the manufacturer save on? First of all, the display – its resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels, with a diagonal of 5.5 inches it looks, frankly, not very good. In addition, there is a microUSB port instead of USB C type. As the operating system on the phone, Android 7.1.2 Noug is used, which is overlapped with the MIUI 9 overlay.
Of the positive things, it is worth noting that the Redmi Y1 has an infrared port and a standard dual SIM (2x nanoSIM + microSD). You will also find a 3.5 mm headphone jack, GPS, wi-fi, LTE, Bluetooth 4.2 and a battery with a capacity of 3080 mAh. The dimensions of the model look like this: 153 x 76.2 x 7.7 mm, and its mass is 153 grams.
Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Lite differs from the Redmi Y1 used by the processor, it works on Snapdragon 425 in cooperation with 2 GB of RAM. This model also has less internal memory – 16 GB. The other parameters are the same.
Both smartphones will go on sale on November 8.
