Xiaomi today announced its latest entry level smartphone, the Redmi 7A, in China. The new Redmi 7A is powered by the Snapdragon 439 chipset and has a big 4,000mAh battery.
The Redmi 7A features the Redmi branding prominently on the front as well as the back, with Xiaomi's name not visible anywhere. This is primarily due to the fact that the Redmi sub-brand is already live in China.
The Redmi 7A is an out and out entry-level smartphone and that shows in its specifications. It features a 5.45-inch HD+ resolution display with a 2.5D curved glass on top. Xiaomi has opted for a splash resistant polycarbonate body instead of a metal one, but this should make the smartphone sturdier, which is a positive. The body comes with P2i nano coating.
Running on Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 on top, the Redmi 7A is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chipset. This is paired with 2GB or 3GB of RAM with 16GB or 32GB of storage respectively. There is support for microSD cards up to 256GB thanks to a dedicated slot.
In terms of imaging, the Redmi 7A sports a single camera setup on the back. It has a 13MP rear camera with Phase Detection Autofocus and an LED flash. On the front, there is a 5MP camera for selfies and video calling.
Apart from that, the Redmi 7A supports dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS. It is powered by a 4,000mAh battery and supports 10W (5V/2A) charging as well.
Xiaomi did not reveal the price of the Redmi 7A yet. The company will announce it at the Redmi K20 flagship series launch event that is scheduled to be held on May 28th. It is also expected to launch in India as well.
