[Discussion] Redmi Y2 - Know More About Rear Camera

Hi Mi Fans,
Selfie King is Here! The successor of last year’s most anticipated Redmi Y1 is here, Redmi Y2 which was launched on 7th June. This nsmartphone features an AI selfie camera and AI dual camera. AI dual rear camera in Redmi Y2 helps you to capture astonishing bokeh snaps. In this thread, we will discuss more the Dual AI Dual Camera of Redmi Y2.

AI Dual Camera
Redmi Y2 comes with an AI dual camera and a similar set-up which we saw in the camera beast Redmi Note 5 Pro. The primary lens is a 12MP which captures still images with 1.25µ pixel. The secondary lens is a 5 MP shooter helps you to obtain depth information. Xiaomi’s AI algorithm will process these images and optimise them accordingly. This deep learning algorithm will help you to capture stunning low light portraits, better bokeh, better edge detection and lots more.

12MP+5MP setup in Redmi Y2 is superior to 13MP+2MP which is available on other devices?
The primary 13MP sensor in other devices comes with a 1µ pixel sensor. But, the 12MP primary shooter of Redmi Y2 is having a 1.25µ pixel, which will help to capture more colour, so better colour reproduction than 13MP sensor with 1µ pixel. Also, there is a huge advantage in low light photography. 5MP sensor helps in edge detection in portrait photography.  

Advantages of 1.25µ sensor

The low light performance of the Redmi Y2 is much improved  as compared to its forerunner Redmi Y2. The developers were striving hard to improve the quality, especially under low light condition. For the same reason, they introduced the primary sensor with larger pixels. In Redmi Y2, we have a primary sensor with 1.25µ pixels, and we saw this bigger sensor before in Mi A1 which came with flagship graded camera and one of the bestsellers of 2017.

In the above images, 1.25µ pixel sensor in Redmi Y2 compared to 1.0µ and 1.12µ pixel regular phone. Redmi Y2 outruns its competitor with better low light photography. Larger pixels affords better light intake and with the help of AI-based algorithm, you can capture all your delightful moments with this mighty rear camera.

Portrait Photography in Redmi Y2

The AI-powered dual camera has f/ 2.2 aperture which helps in AI-based semantic segmentation for better bokeh effect. This camera can detect the scenes and capture the best image with precise tuning and optimisations based on Xiaomi’s all-new AI algorithm. The camera is powerful enough to capture images with better depth, and I am surprised to see that the AI algorithm is intelligent enough to calculate the distance of the background with the subject and calculate the depth accordingly. Take a look at the image below.  

Other features of the dual rear camera
  • Support PDAF Technology (Phase Detection Auto Focus)
  • HDR
  • Beautify Mode
  • Panorama
  • Face recognition
  • Manual mode
  • Low light enhancement

Redmi Y2 is a big upgrade from Redmi Y1 especially in case of the rear camera and with the introduction of AI-based dual cameras, the phone can undoubtedly produce better portraits. 1.25µ sensor improves its low light photography abilities. With the native MIUI camera and a plethora of features, Redmi Y2 can be called affordable camerabeast.
