As expected, along with the new Redmi 4 smartphone, Xiaomi also announced the new Xiaomi Redmi 4A device. The company released the two devices online, via live stream, instead of the traditional fanfare associated with its phone launches. But it’s understandable, considering how busy the company has been in the past few months.
The Redmi 4A comes with a similar appearance as the Redmi 4, in a matte finish and two color options, gold and rose gold. So, despite its cheap pricing, the phone will look quite premium as compared to rivals in the market. The phone is super light as well, weighing just 131.5 grams. Another interesting highlight of the phone’s design is the super thin antenna lines, which gives it a seamless look.
The Redmi 4A is powered by the Snapdragon 425 chipset which is a quad-core chip clocked at 1.2GHz. There is a 5-inch 720p display on board. For memory, there is 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. At the back, the phone features a 13MP sensor with PDAF, and up front, there is a 5MP shooter. Other features include a 3120mAh battery, MIUI 8 and dual SIM dual standby.
All this for an amazing price tag of 499 Yuan, which comes to just $74. That’s a lot if specs for such a cheap device. The phone will go on sale on November 11.
