Xiaomi has just taken the wraps off their new entry-level smartphone — the Redmi 4A. Priced at Rs 5,999, this 5-inch phone has an HD screen (720p), a Quad-core 1.4GHz 64-bit (4 x Adreno A53 processors) based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 platform, and an Adreno 308 GPU. On the memory front is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD card that can add 128GB of flash storage.
Taking care of photography is a 13MP main camera with an f/2.2 aperture and autofocus, along with a more modest 5MP front camera that has the requisite beauty filters, along with a shutter timer.
The phone supports dual SIMs, and can accept both nano and the larger micro SIM cards. The phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow atop the company’s own skinned user interface, MIUI 8. The OS has a unique feature called Dual App that enables running two of the same apps with different user accounts: for example, you can run two separate WhatsApp accounts alongside each other on this phone.
The Redmi 4A is constructed using a seamless polycarbonate body, and measures in at a thickness of 8.5mm. The phone is also the company’s lightest ever, tipping the scales at a lithe 131.5g.
Best of all, the phone packs a reasonably hefty 3,120mAH battery that the company claims is good for seven days of standby time.
It will be available in four color options (White, Dark Grey, Gold and Rose Gold), and will go on sale on Amazon India and on the Mi India store starting noon on 23 March 2017.
