- Xiaomi has announced the Redmi A1+ launch in India for October 14th
- Redmi A1+ will be a made-in-India product
- The Redmi A1+ was launched globally earlier this month
Xiaomi has announced that it is bringing a new smartphone in its new Redmi A1 series. The company has announced that it will launch the Redmi A1+ in India on October 14th. The smartphone was launched globally earlier this month and is said to sit above the Redmi A1 that was launched in India in September.
The Redmi A1+ will also run on Android Go like the Redmi A1 that was launched last month. Xiaomi has not revealed anything about the India variant yet, but our guess is that it will be similar to the global variant of the Redmi A1+. The invite shared by Xiaomi for the Redmi A1+ India launch shows a similar design to the global variant.
The invite from Xiaomi for the Redmi A1+ launch also says that the smartphone will be a made-in-India product, and shows us two colour options that the Redmi A1+ will come with, a mint green and a sky blue.
Redmi A1+ price (expected)
The Redmi A1+ will be an upgraded version of the Redmi A1. The smartphone was launched in Kenya earlier this month at a price of $85 (roughly Rs 6,990). Now, while this is similar to the Redmi A1’s Rs 6,499 price in India, our guess is that it may be priced higher than the Redmi A1 in India.
