Launched in November 2017, it has generated a lot of interest among young people in India. For starters, it looks really good. The simple and elegant design makes it a very attractive device.
Redmi Y1: Performance
The Y1 is equipped with a 5.5-inch display, 3080mAh battery, Snapdragon 435 CPU, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB memory, and a rear fingerprint scanner. There is also an infra-red blaster, so you can use the Redmi Y1 as a TV remote control.
Multi-taskers will love the Redmi Y1 mobile. In addition, 32 GB is ample space for storing your photos , videos, and other files. There is also a dedicated memory card slot so you can expand its storage if you need more space.

Redmi Y1 Mobile: Price
What ais the point of great features if the price of the device is unaffordable? So, it is time to look at the price.
The base model of the Redmi Y1 costs only ₹ 8,999 (about $140). There are not many smartphones that offer you 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory and a fingerprint scanner for that price.
The Redmi Y1 mobile is officially available only in India and China, but if you live elsewhere you can buy it online and have it shipped to you.
