The Redmi 7A is the latest budget offering from the brand. It was unveiled in China back in May and is an incremental upgrade to the Redmi 6A smartphone, with 18:9 aspect ratio display and a beefy battery cell. While the phone is expected to be the same as the Chinese variant, Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain tweeted over the weekend that the Redmi 7A will be getting a ‘massive feature upgrade’ in India.
#Redmi7A: we are upgrading a MASSIVE feature for the India variant. #MadeForIndia #MakeInIndia 🇮🇳
Something that all of you loved in #RedmiNote7 & #MiA2! Something that none of the other brands provide under ₹20,000 segment.
Any guesses? 😎#Xiaomi ❤️ #SmartDeshkaSmartphone— Manu Kumar Jain (@manukumarjain) June 29, 2019
The feature remains a mystery; however, it’s said to be something that you all loved in the Redmi Note 7 and Mi A2 smartphones and one that no other phone under Rs 20,000 from rival brands offer. Notably, the Redmi Note 7 and Mi A2 both have USB Type-C charging port in common; however, they are not the only smartphones under Rs 20,000 to offer the charging port. There are Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 7.1 to name a few. The Redmi 7A in China, on the other hand, comes with a microUSB charging port to juice up its beefy 4,000mAh battery.
Apart from this, the phone also packs a 5.45-inch HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The Redmi 7A is powered by an entry-level Snapdragon 439 chipset from Qualcomm paired with up to 3GB of RAM and 16GB/ 32GB user-expandable storage.
In the camera department, there is a 5-megapixel shooter on the front, while on the rear it features a 13-megapixel f/2.2 snapper coupled with LED flash. The handset runs Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 out of the box. Just like its predecessor, the Redmi 7A also lacks a fingerprint scanner. On the connectivity front, there is dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, microUSB 2.0, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
