The official presentation was given to Xiaomi Redmi Y2, and therefore a mid-range smartphone offered by a Chinese company. However, this is not the only good news for brand enthusiasts, as the manufacturer has officially announced the release of MIUI 10 in beta on the global market.
Xiaomi Redmi Y2
The Xiaomi Redmi Y2 uses the Qualcomm – Snapdragon 625 chip, consisting of an octa-core processor with a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. SoC works with up to 4 gigabyte RAM . It is one of the most popular mobile systems for typical average students. It's a good connection that will allow you to run any title available on Google Play, although not always on the highest graphic settings. The maximum 64-gigabyte memory has been reserved for all kinds of data, which can be extended at any time by using a microSD reader. The sale also has a version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of data. The smartphone was also equipped with a display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, which has a diagonal of 5.99 " and HD + resolution, and therefore 1440 x 720 pixels. With this characteristic, the panel made in IPS technology has a density of dots per inch at the level of about 269, which is the average value for smartphones with a medium price range. Positively surprising quality – Xiaomi Redmi Y2 was mostly made of metal , with no plastic inserts on top and bottom, which makes me very happy. A fingerprint reader is embedded on the back wall, and the camera is vertical – just like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Due to the fact that Xiaomi Mi 8, Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Xiaomi Mi 8 SE did not make their debut on the Indian market, the Xiaomi branch did not mention the release of the global beta version of MIUI 10, although it is certain that these models will also join this program. Unfortunately, the official date of release of the final version of the software is still unknown, although the manufacturer mentions that this will happen later .
