Since many years, Xiaomi has been aggressively pricing their smartphones and creating a history in their sales count. No doubt, they’ve mastered the game of selling smartphones in bulk with aggressive pricing and today at Delhi, they launched their newest member i.e. Redmi 4A priced at Rs 5,999. It’s the most aggressive priced smartphone as of today in India and is a steal deal at this price.
And since Jio is creating history in the telecom industry in India, and because of which, there has been a huge demand for 4G phones in the low budget category, Redmi 4A is targeted to fill that gap with specs like 5-inch HD display in a polycarbonate body. The dual SIM phone is powered by a 1.4Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB RAM and comes with the option of 16 or 32GB internal storage along with a 3,120mAh battery. Other features include microSD slot for storage expansion (up to 128GB supported), 4G, VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, IR port and FM radio. It has a 13MP primary camera with an f2.2 aperture that is capable of full HD video recording and a 5MP front facing camera. The phone runs MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 and has support for 13 Indian languages.
If you’ll compare it with their previous budget device i.e. Redmi 3S (priced at Rs 6,999), Redmi 4A has got similar features, but 3S has a better processor and a larger battery with fast charge support and all-metal unibody design. Hence, if your budget supports, 3S will be a better deal compared to 4A.
