The portfolio of Xiaomi and its Redmi sub-brand is growing at an alarming rate, so many maniacs have started to get lost in the available models and watch only the most interesting premieres. Today’s presentation is equally interesting, despite the fact that it concerns the budget Redmi 8A.
At first glance, the Redmi 8A does not look like a cheap smartphone, because it has an aesthetic back panel with an interesting arrangement of a single camera and a much more modern front with a screen decorated with a characteristic tear. This is a big leap from the predecessor, which presented symmetrical, albeit wide, frames around the sensor.
The display of the model was made in IPS technology, has a resolution of HD+ and a diagonal of 6.22 inches, which is 0.8 inches higher than the protoplasty. As I mentioned before, the screen has a small indentation, inside which there is a 8MP selfie webcam with face recognition.
Snapdragon 439 processor supported by 2 or 3 GB of RAM is responsible for the operation of Redmi 8A. The same chipset went to its predecessor, but it was supported by up to 2 GB of RAM – one gigabyte more is a positive change. Budgeter operates Android 9 Pie with MIUI 10 overlay.
The biggest novelty came in the power segment, which consists of a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. What is important, the cell not only has a solid size, but also supports fast charging with a power of 18 W. The power supply port is… USB type C. Uff.
Budgetary housing has been covered with a splash-proof coating, although of course it should not be treated as a complete protection against water. On the rear panel there is a single 12MP camera based on Sony IMX363 sensor, a unit that we can find in much more expensive devices, such as the flagship Xiaomi Mi 8.
Now, you can buy Redmi 8A (2GB RAM 32GB ROM) Global Version for $113.99 at Tomtop, delivered by Duty Free Shipping.
