The Redmi 7A has finally made its way to India, as the company officially introduced it to the local audience today. It’s priced at INR5,999 ($85/75) for the 2GB/16GB variant and INR6,199 ($90/80) for the 2GB/32GB model.
The 7A will be offered in three colors – Matte Black, Matte Blue, and Matte Gold. It will go on sale in India from July 11 and will be sold for INR200 ($3/3) less this month. It will be available through Mi.com, Flipkart and Mi Home stores, and will come with a two-year warranty.
The Indian Redmi 7A is powered by Snapdragon 439 SoC, and not the Snapdragon 730 as a Manu Jain tweet led us to believe. The promised “massive” new feature is that unlike the Chinese variant that has a 13MP main camera, the Indian unit comes with a 12MP Sony IMX486 sensor which is the same camera found on the Mi A2 and the Indian Redmi Note 7.
The 7A’s Indian variant also has a dedicated slot for a microSD card which allows storage expansion by up to 256GB, but rest of the hardware of the Indian unit remains the same as the Chinese version – it comes with a 5.45″ HD+ LCD, 5MP selfie camera, splash-proof design, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
