Xiaomi Redmi 7A with Snapdragon 439 launched in India

Leading smartphone-maker Xiaomi unveiled the new budget Redmi 7A series mobile in India.

The Redmi 7A sports a 5.45-inch HD+ display and on the back, it features sturdy polycarbonate-based shell with pyrolytic graphite sheet to dissipate heat. It is also said to come with re-enforced corners to sustain accidental fall. It also boasts P2i splash resistant nano-coating, making it one of the most durable phones in the sub-Rs 10,000 segments. It can be noted that the Redmi 7A comes with a two-year warranty, showing much Xiaomi believes in the device's build quality.

Inside, it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 octa-core CPU with 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, Android Pie-based MIUI 10 and a 4,000mAh battery, which is more than enough for the phone to last a more than a day under mixed usage. Also, the Redmi 7A boasts wireless FM, meaning the owner need not have to plug an audio jack to play FM radio. 

In terms of imaging, Redmi 7A comes with decent hardware. It features 12MP snapper with Sony IMX486 sensor, LED flash on the back and a 5MP sensor on the front.

The new Redmi 7A series coming in two variants--2GB RAM + 16GB storage & 2GB RAM + 32GB storage-- for Rs Rs 5,999 and Rs 6,199, respectively. The sale is slated to go live on Flipkart, Mi Home, and mi.com on 11 July 12 pm.

As part of the fifth year anniversary, Xiaomi will offer Rs 200 discount on Redmi 7A, meaning the device price will start from Rs 5,799. But, this offer is valid for July month only.
