Today finally Redmi unveiled their selfie smartphone 2.0 i.e. Redmi Y2. With lots of speculations and rumors about the new smartphone which has a tag of “the real youth phone”, it was quite sure Redmi is up to something to counter the new hero “Realme 1″…

Now, is the smartphone worth its predecessor? Yes, indeed it is. It has all the needed features that a mid-ranged smartphone should have. And also this smartphone has been purely made for youth who love clicking photos…

Interestingly which I personally liked is that the Redmi Y2 not only has a good “AI-camera” but also, a dual camera at the rear end. This will help you to snap great pics, no matter where you go.
