Xiaomi launched it’s new smartphone Redmi Y2 in Indian Mobile Space. Redmi Y2 is a New and upgraded version of Y-Series phones from Xiaomi. Talking about Y-Series phones, which is especially coming for all the selfie lovers. Xiaomi claims that they sold a massive number of Redmi Y1 to all the youth of age 18-24 last year. So, in this article, I will talk about the camera of Redmi Y2, and does it seems worth?
Selfie Camera –
The smartphone is equipped with a 16MP front camera, which can capture fine details in daylight and produces
high-resolution images. In low-light conditions, the sensor uses pixel binning technique to combine information from four pixels and create one large 2.0µm pixel. This greatly improves the resulting picture quality, producing clearer and brighter photos in low light with less noise.
Another addition to its low-light repertoire is the Selfie-light, which produces a 4500K color temperature making it easier to take selfies in low-light conditions.
When Auto HDR is enabled, the 16MP front camera automatically detects a back-light environment and applies the HDR effect. Selfie-light on Redmi Y2 mimics natural light, allowing catchlights in the eyes to be captured, which makes for great portrait photos. The camera also
supports AI bokeh that effectively distinguishes the subject from the background, even correctly identifying elements such as hair accessories and popular hand gestures as being part of the subject.
Redmi Y2 is featuring AI based camera with the help of the MiUi 10. Most of the AI based phones work on AI because of their AI enabled processors. But, in the case of Redmi Y2, it’s using it’s custom ROM. Redmi Y2 runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, which is nearly three-year-old processor and not an AI enabled processor.
Dual Rear Camera –
Redmi Y2 sports a 12MP + 5MP AI dual camera on its back. The 12MP primary sensor has 1.25µm large pixels, which results in brighter images in low light conditions. The 5MP secondary sensor is dedicated to acquiring depth information, producing photos with great bokeh effects.
In Portrait Mode, both the front and back cameras support AI Beautify. AI Beautify 4.0 is designed keeping in mind specific needs of users in India, and can detect elements such as makeup, beards, nose rings, etc. and keep them intact (besides popular selfie facial expressions). It seems like Xiaomi has worked hard for there new MiUi 10, and this custom ROM is going to change the game for sure.
