Redmi Y3 arriving on April 24 with 32 MP selfie camera

Seven months after the launch of Redmi Y2, its successor is about to arrive. Xiaomi India asked “y just selfies, y not 32 MP super selfies”, teasing the arrival of Redmi Y3, with, you guessed it, 32 MP selfie camera. The launch will take place next week on April 24.

Looking at the teaser, the phone will clearly have a waterdrop notch. Another interesting thing is the Redmi Y3 might be an entirely new phone, unlike the Redmi Y2, which is a rebranded Redmi S2, or the Redmi Y1 which was initially introduced as Redmi Note 5A.

Once it arrives, the Redmi Y3 will become the Xiaomi phone with the highest resolution selfie camera. Up until now, the Mi Mix 3 arrived with a 24 MP shooter, while the Mi 9 has a 20 MP sensor. We expect the new phone to have the Samsung ISOCELL GD1 sensor which uses a Quad-Bayer layer and effective functions as an 8MP imager with huge pixels and real-time HDR.

Other specs are unknown, but we expect some to leak in the 10 days leading to the official event. Some fans are hoping for a Mi A3 arrival as well, but Xiaomi India immediately shot down the idea in various Twitter conversations.
