The Chinese budget smartphone king is yet again launching an affordable smartphone here in India. It is the Redmi 4A, it will be the successor of the Redmi 3. The phone is aimed at budget buyers just like the Redmi 3, it must cost somewhere below Rs 9000 after launch. The phone will be an Amazon exclusive but it will also be available on Mi.com which is Xiaomi's site.
Redmi Note 4 was Xiaomi's higher end smartphone that was priced around Rs 10,000 to Rs 13,000 based on the RAM and internal storage memories while the Redmi 3S started at Rs 6,999 for 2 GB + 16 GB version and Rs 8,999 for 3 GB + 32 GB version. Now, the Redmi 4A does not look like it will have a 32 GB version first. They might consider it later maybe.
Specification wise, the Redmi 4A has a 5 inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution and it is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 CPU paired with a 2 GB of RAM. It has 16 GB internal storage that can be expanded through microSD slot. The primary camera is 13 MP and the front camera is 5 MP. The phone runs Android Marshmallow (MIUI 8) and is juiced by a 3120 mAh battery. The phone lacks a fingerprint sensor which was present in Redmi Note 4.
It is well known that the company has already recorded in sales of their previous launches. The Redmi Note 4 has sold more than a million units just in India and that is just through online markets. They are still expanding their offline retail stores. In a tweet, the company's VP Manu Kumar Jain said they are partnering with stores such as Poorvika Mobile, Sangeetha Mobile and BigCMobiles to make their smartphones available in their 700+ stores across the country.
