Xiaomi has revived a line of smartphones on pure Android. The family was called Redmi A, and its first representative was Redmi A1, announced on September 6 in India. In addition to the lack of MIUI, the novelty is interesting for a very low price ($82), as well as an unusual leather-styled back.
The characteristics of the device are fully consistent with its positioning. The ultra-budgetary is equipped with a 6.52-inch IPS screen with HD + resolution and a waterdrop notch that hides a 5 MP front camera. At the back, the optics are no more remarkable – two sensors are installed at 8 and 2 MP.
As a processor, Redmi A1 uses Helio A22, which turned 4 years old in June. It is complemented by modest by modern standards 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of permanent memory. You can’t do without a flash drive, so the Chinese have provided a separate MicroSD slot for expanding storage.
But with autonomy, the model, apparently, will be in full order. Inside is a 5000 mAh battery with support for 10-watt charging. Unfortunately, the power supply is connected via an archaic microUSB port in every sense.
Other features of the novelty include support for LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 and a minijack. Weighing 192 grams, the dimensions of the device are 164.9 x 76.75 x 9.09 mm.
