The Xiaomi Redmi 7 has been available in India since April 30, but its price has stayed mostly the same. The smaller, more affordable Redmi 7A will launch on July 4 as a teaser on Flipkart jsut revealed.
Xiaomi has been tweeting teaser with various interesting facts about the Redmi A-phones. For example, the Redmi 4A, 5A and 6A combined sold over 23.6 million units. The Redmi 5A and 6A were best-sellers in India. In April they accounted for 48% of the $75-$100 segment in the country.
The most recent teaser hints at the new octa-core processor inside the Redmi 7A (its predecessors had quad-cores). The 7A has been available in China for months now, of course, so its specs are hardly a secret.
That said, Manu Kumar Jain promised that a feature will get a massive upgrade for the Indian version of the phone, but only gave a hint about what it could be a feature everyone loved on the Redmi Note 7 and Mi A2.
An upgrade to Snapdragon 660 seems unlikely, but perhaps adding a second camera or faster charging is on the cards.
