    The smartphone has a unique metal unibody-like design. However, the smartphone is entirely made of plastic (polycarbonate), which makes this smartphone so light in weight. The Phone has a few curves at the right spot, which makes this smartphone easy to hold in hand.

    Android 8.1 Oreo

    Only 0.8% of all the Android smartphones are running on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo OS and the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is one of those. The smartphone offers the latest operating system from Google with custom MIUI 9.5 skin on the top, which introduces features like full-screen gestures and other customizable features.

    These are some of the best features of the Xiaomi Redmi Y2. However, there are still a lot of features, which makes the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 a great competitor in the sub Rs 10,000 smartphones.
