Xiaomi has been in the Indian market for close to four years now, during which time it has managed to climb up to the number two spot, just behind Samsung. With the top spot in sight, the Chinese company has been steadily widening its portfolio in the country. In the last few months, we saw the introduction of its flagship, the Mi Mix 2 (Review), and the Android One-powered Mi A1 (Review). Xiaomi has launched yet another series in the country this month, dubbed the Redmi Y series. With this move, Xiaomi is looking at a dedicated lineup to cash in on the selfie craze. Its first device, the Redmi Y1, has good specifications on paper, but should it be your first choice? We find out.
