Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi launched a new mainstream smartphone called Redmi A1+ in India today. Priced from just Rs. 6,299, it is one of the company’s most affordable smartphones for India this year. The main selling point of this phone, apart from the very compelling price, is its software. The Android-standard phone is reminiscent of the original Mi A series, which participated in the Android One program and did not come with the MIUI skin.
Redmi A1+: Specifications
The Redmi A1+ sports a 6.52-inch IPS LCD display with an HD resolution of 720 x 1600 and a peak brightness of 400 nits. It is powered by the 12nm Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22, a quad-core CPU. The chip does not support 5G.
There is an 8MP dual camera on the back, while the front offers a 5MP selfie snapper. The battery is 5000 mAh in size and supports 10W charging, with the charger included. The back is covered with a smooth leather texture that is resistant to fingerprints. The dimensions are 164.9 x 76.75 x 9.09mm and the whole weighs 192g. The phone boots by default in Android 12 Go Edition, a stripped down version of stock Android designed for faster performance.
Prices and Availability
Unlike the Redmi A1 that launched last month, the Redmi A1+ comes in two variants – there is the 2GB RAM + 32GB storage model priced at Rs 7,499 and the 3GB RAM + 32GB model Storage that will cost you 8,499 rupees. Color options are black, light green and light blue. The device will be available on Flipkart, mi.com, Mi Home and in retail stores starting October 17 at 12 p.m. Early buyers can pick up the phone for Rs. 6,999 and Rs. 7,999 under the introductory offer. This offer is valid until October 31st.
