Over past few weeks, we have talked about some surprisingly affordable smartphones (this Intex Phone is a fine example that costs almost Rs 5,600), and today, one of the biggest China-based smartphone maker Xiaomi launched its new entry-level flagship phone for Indian markets. The phone is named Xiaomi Redmi 4A, and from looking at specs, it appears Xiaomi has raised the bar about what can be expected with a phone that costs less than $100.
Redmi 4A has a body made of polycarbonate, and it comes with a hybrid dual SIM card slot. The phone is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 SoC which is paired with Adreno 308 GPU and 2 GB of RAM.
Apart from that, the phone has a 13-megapixel camera at the rear with PDAF and a f/2.2 aperture and LED flash. In front, the screen size is 5-inch, and its resolution is 1280×720. The phone runs on MIUI 8 which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the phone has 16 GB of built-in storage which can be expanded up to 128 GB thanks to an external MicroSD card slot.
Connectivity wise, the phone has support for 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/A-GPS and Bluetooth v4.1. The phone’s battery is 3120mAh, and it has support for fast charging.
The phone will go on sale on Amazon India and Mi.com from 12 PM today, and if you want the gold variant, you will have to wait until April 6.
