Xiaomi has dropped a surprise package in India in the form of Redmi 4A. The name can be confusing as we already have Redmi 3 duo in the country. The Redmi 4A can be seen as a successor to Redmi 1S that came here way back in 2014.
Redmi 3 duo has already managed to grab a good user base, but its increased price means some people couldn’t buy it. That’s where the Redmi 4A fits in. The budget phone looks to repeat what its predecessor once did with its value-for-money specsheet. It features a Snapdragon 425 processor and 2GB RAM. There’s a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP one sits on the front. The 5 inch display features 720p HD resolution. What’s really interesting about the phone is its powerful 3,120 mAh battery. On the storage front, it has 16GB internal memory.
The Redmi 4A doesn’t have standout aesthetics. The polycarbonate housing comes in three matte finish colors. It features a hybrid dual SIM slot and there’s no fingerprint sensor either. On the plus side, it features an infrared sensor.
As usual, the Redmi 4A costs Rs.5,999 (~US $91) and is online only and will be available through Amazon India and Xiaomi’s own e-store. The first flash sale will take place on 23rd March on Amazon.
