Of course it won't be able to compete with the top of the range, but in the price/technical features ratio, the Redmi 7a is among the best smartphones on the market
If you're looking for a great low-end smartphone to surf the web, go on social, take some photos and videos and other basic activities for a modern terninal, wait a few more days: the Redmi 7A is coming. The low cost smartphone of Xiaomi/Redmi, presented in China in May, is in fact about to land in Europe.
Some online stores already have it in the catalog, in two versions, and the European marketing would also seem confirmed by some leaks, such as that of two days ago by Roland Quandt that also announces the prices: 99 euros for the version with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage space and 119 euros for the version 2/32GB. These would be the recommended prices to the public, which should not deviate much from the real ones, and this model could arrive on the shelves already in the coming weeks.
Redmi 7A: technical characteristics
As we have become accustomed to doing, also in this case Redmi has presented a smartphone with an excellent price/features ratio. Undoubtedly the Redmi 7A is a low cost (and has no ambition to go to compete in the mid-range), but still offers an 8 MP front camera and a rear 13 MP, a 5.5-inch IPS screen without notch (but with bezels on all sides) from 1520×720 pixels and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 octacore CPU. The battery is 4,000 mAh, so you can expect very good battery life. The operating system is Android 9, with EMUI 10. Its bigger brother, the original Redmi 7, for comparison, has a 6.2-inch display (also LCD IPS) and a Snapdragon 632 octacore and, at launch, cost around 160 euros.
The Redmi range
The Redmi 7A joins the already announced Redmi range, consisting of the Redmi 7, Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. They are all smartphones with a really good price/features ratio, destined to disrupt the market in Europe as well and push other manufacturers to lower the prices of their respective smartphones. The original Redmi 7, for example, has a 6.2-inch display (again, IPS LCD) and a Snapdragon 632 and, at launch, cost around 160 euros. Competition, especially in the smartphone industry, has never been more appealing to consumers.
