Xiaomi has launched the Redmi A1 smartphone in India which forms the latest entrant in the entry-level budget smartphone segment in the country. Also, despite its affordable pricing, the new Redmi A1 with its HD+ display, 5000 mAh battery, and a MediaTek chipset, the phone packs quite a punch.
Redmi A1 Specifications
The Redmi A1 comes with a 6.52-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch at the top and a rather thickish chin at the bottom. Under the hood lies a MediaTek Helio A11 chipset that is coupled to a 2 GB LPDDR4X RAM and 32 GB of storage. The phone accepts microSD cards to add more storage. A 5000 mAh battery keeps the lights on and is backed by 10W fast charging support via a microUSB port.
There is a pair of 8 MP cameras arranged in a vertical stack at the rear while the front gets a 5 MP shooter for selfies and video calls. The phone runs a near stock version of Android 12 with no MIUI skin on top, which makes for a sensible choice given the modest specs of the phone. Another nice feature of the phone and which makes a lot of sense in a multilingual country like India is the support for several regional languages. Those include Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, and Bengali, to name a few.
Among the other convenient feature of the Redmi A1 include an integrated FM Radio. Then there are built-in speakers as well placed at the top while there is a dual SIM card slot too.
