When Xiaomi announced the Redmi 6A, it launched with 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage. Starting on Tuesday, July 10, the Redmi 6A will now be available in a 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM variant.
The new variant has been listed on JD.com and will sell for ¥699 (~105), ¥100 (~$15) less than the base variant (3GB RAM + 32GB) of the Redmi 6.
The Redmi 6A has a 5.45-inch HD+ display and is powered by a 12nm Helio A22 processor clocked at 2.0GHz. It has a single 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera with portrait mode. To keep the price low, the Redmi 6A doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner but comes with Ai face unlock.
It also has an AI assistant that helps with translations, exchange rate conversion, and can even identify the calories in your food simply by pointing the camera at the food.
There is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, a hybrid dual SIM slot, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Surprisingly, Xiaomi has removed the IR sensor (and on the Redmi 6), so you won’t be able to use this to control your electronics. The Redmi 6A runs Android 8.1 Oreo and comes with a 3,000mAh battery.
You can pre-order the 3GB variant here ahead of its Tuesday release date. However, do note that it is only available in gold at the moment.
