On May 28th, Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, released a couple of smartphones through its Redmi sub-brand. In addition to the Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K20 which were released, the company also released its new entry-level smartphone, Redmi 7A. This device is billed to go on sale first in China on Wednesday, June 6th, before but will head to other countries in the coming month. Now, we already have a landing page for this smartphone on Gearbest and it is one of the best platforms to get this device globally.
Talking about the design of the handset, the Redmi 7A keeps the polycarbonate body but also boasts an 18:9 aspect ratio, a first for Redmi in the price range. There’s also this “Redmi” logo on the front which we’ve never seen on any other Redmi handset before. The display is a 5.45-inch IPS panel that offers HD+ (720 x 1,440p) resolution. In terms of processing power, the Redmi 7A makes the jump to a Snapdragon 439 from the MediaTek Helio A22 on its predecessor which will surely please customers. The processor is supported with 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage.
There’s a huge 4,000mAh battery as compared to last year’s 3,000mAh tucked under the chassis coupled with 10W charging. In terms of camera, the Redmi 7A has a primary 13MP shooter assisted with LED flash and a 5MP front shooter. Software features include PDAF, AI beauty and AI background blur. One of the big changes is the removal of the fingerprint reader which might backfire for Redmi. Redmi 7A users will have to rely on the face unlock solely. It will run on the latest MIUI 10 with Android Pie. The Redmi 7A comes in Black and Blue
