Update — April 11, 2019: The company is teasing a bigger battery for the phone.
Earlier: Xiaomi launched Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in India back in February and now it is gearing up for another Redmi smartphone launch in the country. As the teaser is focused on selfies and Redmi India also used hashtag ‘YYY’ in their tweet, it is expected to be the Redmi Y3. Xiaomi India Head also mentioned the number 32 multiple times in his tweet, so there are good chances for it to sport a 32 MP front camera.
Why is Manu on selfie spree? #YYY? 🤔

Redmi General Manager, Lu Weibing has also mentioned about a Redmi smartphone with 32 MP front camera on his weibo today. Redmi recently launched Redmi 7 in China featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 platform, going by the history we can expect Xiaomi to put a more advanced processor on the Redmi Y3. Since the base variant of Redmi Note 7 is available at INR 9,999 we can expect the base variant of Redmi Y3 to be priced around INR 8,999 in India.
There isn’t much known about Redmi Y3 yet and it might have its global debut in India. The Redmi Y3 is expected to be launched in India later this month, and we can expect to know more about the smartphone before the launch via official teasers.
