At an event in New Delhi today, Xiaomi introduced a new device “Redmi 4A“, to its entry-level smartphone line-up at a price of Rs. 5,999. The device was initially launched in China last year in November and has now made its way to India. It’s mainly targeted towards customers looking for an affordable phone that supports 4G VoLTE. The Redmi 4A comes in Dark Grey, Gold and Rose Gold colours. It will be available on Amazon India and Mi.com starting 12PM on March 23rd. Now let’s talk about the offerings of Redmi 4A:
Xiaomi Redmi 4A sports a polycarbonate body with matte finish and packs a 5-inch HD display. The handset is powered by a 1.4GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor coupled with Adreno 308 GPU and runs on MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. Unfortunately, the device has a Hybrid SIM slot which means one can’t use dual SIMs and external storage simultaneously. The device is 8.5mm thick and weighs 131.5 grams, making it the lightest Redmi phone ever. It comes with a 3120mAh non-removable battery and packs an Infrared sensor as well.
