On: June 28, 2019

Xiaomi has three smartphones in its Redmi A series which include the Redmi 4A, Redmi 5A, and Redmi 6A. The devices were all launched at affordable price tags and targeted towards budget customers. The Redmi 4A and 5A were launched in 2017, while the Redmi 6A debuted in 2018. Today Manu Kumar Jain, MD of Xiaomi India announced that the company has sold 23.6 million units of the Redmi A lineup in India till April 2019. The sales are also claimed to be more than the population of Australia. 

Xiaomi also announced the launch of its next Redmi A-series smartphone, the Redmi 7A. While the company hasn’t revealed the exact launch date, it is likely that the device will be announced alongside or soon after the Redmi K20 series, as hinted by Xiaomi India’s Marketing Head, Anuj Sharma. The company is slated to unveil the Redmi K20 series in mid-July, with some reports hinting at a July 15th or July 17th launch date.  

The Redmi 7A was launched in China last month at a price tag of 549 Yuan (~Rs 5,500) for the base variant and 799 Yuan (~Rs 8,000) for the higher variant. Since the device falls in the budget segment, we expect that this one too will be no exception. 

As for technical specifications, the Redmi 7A features a 5.45-inch display offering an HD+ resolution. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 439 chipset and is available in 2GB or 3GB RAM options. The former offers 16GB onboard storage while the latter packs 32GB. The Redmi 7A sports a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie shooter. The device is backed by a 4,000mAh battery unit with support for 10W fast charging. It runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie.
