Hello Mi Fans!
Last year Xiaomi India introduced a brand new series the Redmi Y in India with Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite smartphones. This week we saw the unveiling of the successor to Redmi Y1, the Redmi Y2 smartphone with AI Selfie Camera. Redmi Y1 was the No.1 Selling Selfie Phone in India, and its camera was one of the best in the segment. Redmi Y2 brings with it many improvements, especially in the camera department.

Redmi Y2 is equipped with a 16 megapixels AI-powered Selfie camera with LED Selfie light. The selfie camera also comes with f/2.0 large aperture which helps in low light conditions and 79.8° wide-angle lens on top of which there is AI Algorithm. This AI Algorithm helps with Low-light Selfie, Auto HDR; AI beautify and AI Portrait mode. Let's learn a little more about AI Selfie Superstar’s Selfie Camera.

One of the major issues with most of the smartphones is dull and noisy images in Low light situations. Many smartphones users have had problems while clicking selfies in low lighting conditions. The Redmi Y2 camera is perfected in such a way that you can click brighter selfies in low light states.

Redmi Y2 comes with f/2.0 aperture and has a feature called Super Pixel with uses the technology of Pixel Binning. Under low light conditions, 4 pixels will combine to form a Super Pixel. This effectively increases the size of the pixel to 2 microns each this helps in capturing more light and less noise, which creates a picture of significantly better quality. The image below has been clicked in low light conditions and still looks good.

The front selfie light with 4500k colour temperature which helps in creating almost natural ambient white lighting in low lit situations and at night. The Selfie light help in adding proper light on the object and results in better-looking images in low light cases. This can also help in taking videos under low light conditions.

The front camera also has an auto HDR mode. The AI automatically detects the ambient conditions and automatically decides when the HDR mode should be turned on/off. This feature would indeed be helpful for people who don't like to play much the camera settings. The Auto HDR mode also works well even in outdoor conditions. The HDR mode makes the selfies look better and more details can be-be seen in the images taken with HDR mode.

Redmi Y2 has AI Beautify 4.0 with in-depth learning and features that are optimised specially for India. Beautify 4.0 can also intelligently identify the skin variations. The mode works on ten different facial features and tries to determine each one and beautifies each one separately. More details on Beautify 4.0 will be shared in another thread.

The front portrait mode on the Redmi Y2 is also powered by AI which works on the Semantic Segmentation with an in-depth learning algorithm. This helps in more accurate edge detection. It measures the scene pixel by pixel and identifies which pixels need to be in focus, i.e., the person and all her/his accessories and blur everything else. This works perfectly in both outdoor and indoor conditions. Below are some AI Selfie Portrait is taken with Redmi Y2.

What do you guys think about the selfie camera of India's new selfie superstar - Redmi Y2?
