Xiaomi launched the entry-level Redmi 7A last month in India. At that time the company had announced that the budget smartphone would be made available in offline markets later. Now the smartphone is up for purchase through brick-and-mortar stores in the country. The Redmi 7A’s pricing in the offline space is different from its online pricing.
In the offline market, the base variant i.e 2GB+16GB is priced at Rs 6,199 instead of Rs 5,999 online. The 2GB+32GB variant will cost Rs 6,399 compared to the online pricing of Rs 6,199.
To recall the specifications, the Redmi 7A is an affordable device with respectable specifications. The device offers a 5.45-inch screen bearing HD+ resolution. The display is surrounded by thick bezels. The device can be availed in Matte Blue, Matte Black, and Matte Gold colour options. The Redmi 7A has a 12MP rear camera featuring a Sony IMX486 sensor, which was earlier seen on the Mi A2 and Redmi Note 7. Up front, the device is fitted with a 5MP selfie snapper. The camera comes with PDAF, HDR, and full HD video recording. The smartphone relies on AI face unlock in place of the missing fingerprint scanner.
Inside, the Redmi 7A is equipped with a 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 439 chipset paired with Adreno 505 GPU. The device packs 2GB RAM and users get the option to choose between 16GB or 32GB internal storage. There is a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion. The Redmi 7A runs Android 9 Pie with MIUI 9 layered on the top. It is backed by a 4,000mAh battery with support for 10W charging.
