Xiaomi's new Redmi Y1 & Y1 Lite Unboxing pictures and Specifications.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has just launched two new selfie-centric smartphones, the Xiaomi Redmi Y1, and the Redmi Y1 Lite here in India.

With the launch of Redmi 4, a new benchmark was set for mid-range devices in India. It easily paved its way to secure the title 'Best smartphone of 2017' by NDTV Gadget Guru. The expectations rose up further and everyone speculated about the next Redmi device from Xiaomi. Surprisingly, Redmi Y1 is here to draw your attention to an entirely new series which features powerful specs than ever before. In this thread, we present you the unboxing and hands-on pictures of Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 lite. Sit tight and enjoy the photo gallery!

Although the phone is sold as Redmi 5A and Prime, but Xiaomi started using another series as it may be confusing and might pull another Samsung like its J series.
