Jain had previously teased a new member to the Redmi Y series in a tweet that hinted at the 32-megapixel camera capability. The Redmi Y3 has been rumoured to come with a 32-megapixel sensor. In fact, the smartphone was reported to come bearing the Samsung GD1 32-megapixel sensor, which is a significant bump over the prequel Redmi Y2 that had a 16-megapixel sensor on the front.
The Samsung sensor, which is reported to be packed inside the selfie camera on the Redmi Y3, supports HDR capabilities. It was last seen on the Vivo V15 Pro, which was touted as the first 32-megapixel selfie camera phone. As far as the rear cameras are concerned, the Redmi Y3 will have the same setup as the predecessor – a 12-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor.
Additionally, the Redmi Y3 could come with a 4000mAh battery under the hood with support for fast charging. The processor is unknown at the moment but reports have suggested the smartphone will run Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 out-of-the-box. The details of the Redmi Y3 display are also not available as of now. In any case, we will learn about all the specifications on the unveiling day of Xiaomi Redmi Y3.
