As expected Xiaomi has launched the Redmi 4A in the Indian market with not so amazing price like it was supposed to be. Xiaomi has the most successful smartphone range in as a “Redmi Series” priced between Rs 7,000 to Rs 14,000 and now additional to the line-up is the new Redmi 4A the cheapest Redmi Smartphone among others.
The Redmi 4A comes with seamless polycarbonate body with curved edges. At 8.5mm, the smartphone is quite thin and should sit comfortably in one’s palms. It comes with curved edges and a 2.5D curved glass on top
As far as specifications are concerned, the Xiaomi Redmi 4A sports a 5-inch HD (720p) IPS display, and is powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 425 quad-core chipset paired with Adreno 308GPU. The smartphone comes with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded using a microSD card.
For photography, the Redmi 4A is equipped with a 13-megapixel primary camera of aperture f/2.2 and 5-element lens, accompanied by a single LED flash, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera up front with an aperture of f/2.2.
The only thing which makes it different from Redmi 3s is that the Redmi 4A doesn’t come with a huge battery. Instead there is a 3,120mAh unit underneath. There’s also no fingerprint sensor onboard.
Connectivity options include hybrid sim setup, 4G with VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android Marshmallow-based MIUI 8. It also comes with Infrared Sensor.
The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is priced at Rs 5,999, and the device will be exclusively on sale via Amazon India, and first sale will take place on March 23. According to me it should be priced at Rs 5,000 but you can’t blame Xiaomi as it’s the taxes & Duty that make Redmi 4A slightly expensive.
