Fresh from the success of its participation at the Lazada Mid-year Sale, Xiaomi Philippines is now teasing a new smartphone. And it’s from the Redmi sub-brand.
(Update, July 25: We have the pricing and availability details! See Redmi 7A priced starting at P4,790 [$94] in the Philippines.)
Its post on Facebook reads, “The simple choice. Coming soon.” There’s no doubt, then, that the company is referring to the Redmi 7A, which comes with the hashtag #TheSimpleChoice in countries like Malaysia. Even the slightly darkened teaser, as seen below, confirms that the device is the 7A; the chin shows the Redmi logo.
The Redmi 7A is the brand’s cheapest offering yet. The model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage is priced at ¥549 (around P4,070 or $80) in China. The version with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, on the other hand, costs ¥599 (P4,441 or $87).
Inside the Redmi 7A is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chip, which is said to deliver a 26-percent performance boost over the MediaTek Helio A22 used by last year’s Redmi 6A.
The unit comes with a 5.45-inch HD screen, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, a 4,000mAh battery, and Android 9.0 Pie layered with MIUI 10.
