Redmi Y3 is all set to be launched in India today, and Xiaomi is largely expected to also launch the Redmi 7 alongside. The event will begin at 12pm (noon) IST and it will be livestreamed on the company's social handles as well as its official website. The Redmi Y3 is teased to sport a 32-megapixel super selfie camera, a waterdrop-shaped notch, and a dual rear camera setup. The Redmi 7, on the other hand, has already been made official in China last month. It comes with a 4,000mAh battery, a Snapdragon 632 SoC, and MIUI 10. The Redmi 7 also packs a 6.26-inch HD+ screen, up to 4GB RAM, and up to 64GB of onboard storage.

The Redmi Y3 is set to be available on Mi.com, Mi Home, and Amazon.in. India pricing and availability details of the Redmi Y3 and Redmi 7 will be announced at the event today.
The Redmi Y3 price in India can be expected to be similar to the company's previous Redmi Y-series handsets - the Redmi Y2 was launched starting at Rs. 9,999 last year, while the Redmi Y1 was launched starting at Rs. 8,999 the year before that. Notably, the Redmi Y3 hasn't been launched in China, and India would be the first market for unveil. It is teased to be highly durable, and a drop test was shown on video to testify the claim. The video also reveals that the phone will sport a waterdrop-style notch and a dual rear camera setup with a rear fingerprint sensor as well. Past leaks suggest 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 625 SoC, and Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10. The phone is already confirmed to come with a 32-megapixel selfie camera and a 4,000mAh battery.
