- The underwhelming 10W charging speed may be a concern for prospective buyers
September 6 is a big day for Xiaomi’s Redmi lineup of phones, with a handful of them expected to be revealed on the day. One particular Redmi device has now leaked ahead of its official release, known as the Redmi A1. This phone packs budget hardware and an expectedly low price tag.
While the phone isn’t official yet, the team at 91Mobiles Hindi has managed to uncover pretty much everything there is to know about it, including info on the design and hardware specifications.
Redmi A1 design, specs, performance
For starters, the Redmi A1 will weigh up to 191 grams while featuring dimensions of 164.9mm x 76.75mm x 9.09mm. Customers will be treated to a 6.52-inch HD+ (1600 x 720) screen bearing a 20:9 aspect ratio.
The official renders accessed by the 91Mobiles Hindi team highlight the front camera notch (5MP f/2.2) accompanied by slightly thicker bezels on the sides and the bottom of the screen. Moreover, we also learn that the phone will be available in green, blue, and black colour variants. The plastic rear panel has dual cameras (8MP f/2.0 + auxiliary f/2.2 sensors) with an LED flash and the customary Redmi branding. We’ve learned that the rear cameras will offer features like time-lapse, portrait mode, short video, and several other useful features offered in similar Redmi phones.
Managing the performance side of things is the MediaTek Helio G22 SoC paired with 32GB of eMMC 5.1 storage and a microSD card slot for up to 1TB of additional storage space. While the base model should offer up to 2GB of LPDDR4X RAM out of the box, rumours indicate the presence of a 3GB RAM version, too. However, we cannot confirm this at the moment.
In the battery department, Xiaomi will include a 5,000mAh unit with 10W wired charging. It should come bundled with Android 12 and MIUI 13. It seems like the Redmi A1 will lack a dedicated fingerprint scanner, with consumers having to resort to more conventional ways of authenticating their identity.
