Xiaomi launched its new series named Y series yesterday and the device launched in this series is Y1.First of all let’s take a look at the specs.Y1 comes with a snapdragon 435 SOC clocked at 1.4GHz.Adding to this it has a 5.5″ HD screen and a metal looking finish(its plastic)with gold and silver color.This phone comes in two variant the first one is the 3gb+32gb combination and the another one has 4gb+64gb.The price is Rs.8,999 and 10,999 respectively.As far as the android version is concerned it comes with android nougat7.1 out of the box on top of MIUI 9. Don’t expect the monthly updates quickly as xiaomi is very bad in terms of timely updates.The display is good but not great the colors are quiet on the brighter side and are over saturated which results in an artificial look.The battery capacity is 3080mAh and thankfully this one does not have a hybrid sim slot.You can insert 2 nano sim and a micro SD card at the same time.
NOW ,lets talk about the Highlighting feature of the phone i.e the reason for the title of this blog..Yes the Camera.This one is rocking a 16MP front facing (with flash)camera and a 13MP rear camera.In terms of inhand feel and looks it is quiet similar to the miA1 (another device from xiaomi) from front and redmi 4 from back.Xiaomi camera is not well baked i would say but this time they launched a camera centric device in order to prove us wrong and the perception we had about it’s camera.Anyways the 13 MP(PDAF) camera has a f/2.2aperture and 16MP lens has f/2.0 aperture.It has all the necessary sensors including the Fingerprint sensor and even the IR blaster.At this price Xiaomi launched a very balanced and good device.It would be interesting to see how it competes with the other smartphones in this price range.Also how will be the performance for this one.You can definitely take a look at this device.Thumbs👍For this one..
