Xiaomi Redmi 7, Redmi Y3 to launch in India today: How and where to watch it live
At an event in New Delhi today, Xiaomi is expected to unveil two new smartphones in India – Redmi 7 and Redmi Y3. The launch will kick off by 12 pm, and you will be able to follow it live on Xiaomi’s official channel on YouTube.
The event’s live stream has already been scheduled on YouTube. If you have a busy day forward but still don’t want to miss the live stream, you can set a reminder on the live stream, which will prompt you a few minutes before the stream begins.
Xiaomi Redmi Y3 expected price, specifications, and features
From what we know so far, there’s one thing we are sure of, and that’s the Redmi Y3 will sport a 32 MP selfie camera. That’s all Xiaomi’s been able to talk about in its teasers.
The Redmi Y2 was priced below Rs 10,000 last year and we will likely see the Redmi Y3 priced similarly. Incidentally, a dedicated product page for the phone is also live on Amazon India, which suggests that the phone will be an Amazon exclusive once it goes on sale.
Xiaomi recently also teased a drop test of the Redmi Y3.

The phone is also expected to feature a Snapdragon 600-series chipset, a Full HD+ display and run on MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. There is no word on the battery capacity or support for fast charging, but given the fact that the Redmi Y2 (review) packed a 4,000 mAh battery, we could see a repeat of that.
Further, similar to the Redmi Note 7 Pro (review), Xiaomi may also add P2i-rated water and dust-resistance coating on the Redmi Y3.
Xiaomi Redmi 7 expected price, specifications, and features
Redmi 7 has already been launched in China. It comes with a 6.26-inch HD+ display with a 1,520 x 720 pixel resolution which is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC with 2 GB/3 GB/4 GB RAM with storage options such as 16 GB/32 GB/64 GB which is expandable. Coming with Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 user interface, the Redmi 7 sports a dual 12 MP camera setup on the back.
While Xiaomi hasn’t explicitly revealed the Redmi 7’s launch for today, here’s a big hint to ride on.
