The top variant i.e. 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage is priced at Rs. 12,999.

The new blockbuster offering from Xiaomi will be available exclusively on the e-platform of Amazon. The Redmi Y2 will be endorsed by well-known actress Katrina Kaif in India. The successor to the not so popular Redmi Y1, the device comes with upgraded internals, a better camera and a new design that draws inspiration not only from the Redmi Note 5 Pro but also last year's Mi A1. There's nothing we've not seen before, but it is built nicely and the rounded back cover allows the device to sit comfortably on the palm of your hand. The Redmi 6 is said to ship with a 5.45-inch display, while the Redmi Note 6 will feature a 5.84-inch panel, according to TENAA. At the back, there are slight differences.

The design remains unchanged from the front as the Y2 has an 18:9 display with noticeable bezels all around and a huge bottom chin that remains unused. The dual-SIM phone also has a dedicated slot for microSD and will be shipped with a case.

It is a device that tries to strike a fine balance between different features - and as such makes certain compromises that may not go down well with most users. The smartphone is certainly easy to hold and the light enough to carry around.

Why these two phones you may ask? This should ideally translate to vivid colour output and it surely lives up to it. We'll find out more in our detailed review. On the front is a 16-megapixel selfie snapper with AI Portrait mode, LED selfie flash, and Beautify 4.0. It also features a 5MP secondary rear camera to capture depth information for AI portrait shots. This should ideally improve low-light camera performance.

It's likely we'll see more of Rage 2 , and hopefully some more of Fallout 76, but maybe there will be a few surprises in store. As said, we'll find out more about Fallout 76 at Bethesda's E3 2018 conference, so stay tuned for more.

Why not talk about the front-facing "selfie" camera?

The phone is available in two variants - 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 is the only smartphone to provide support for 4K video recording at 30fps out of all the three mentioned here. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, with Xiaomi's MIUI 9.5 on top. The integration of Face Unlock functionality will help you to unlock the handset few nanoseconds. For, example, the brand has introduced gesture controls, which is although a blunt rip-off of iPhone X gesture-based navigation, it is quite useful.

To catch the event LIVE, you're already at the right place. The smartphone packs a 3080mAh battery which company claims to last for an entire day. Connectivity options of the phone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS + GLONASS.
