Xiaomi has launched the Redmi 4A today in India, and it is priced at ₹5,990. It’s a smartphone that’s a cut-down variant of the Xiaomi Redmi 3s and Redmi 3s Prime. The company missed out on the sub-₹6,000 smartphone category last year as the Redmi 3s and the Redmi 3s Prime were priced at ₹6,990 and ₹7,990, respectively. The Redmi 4A brings a lot of improvements compared to the Redmi 2, such as a better processor, more memory and storage, and a better design. Let’s have a look at its design in the images below.
The Xiaomi Redmi 4A feels solidly built, similar to most Xiaomi smartphones that have been released in the past one year. The front of the device has a white front, but most of it is covered by a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display, the front-facing camera, an earpiece, and a bunch of sensors. The volume rocker and the power/lock button are placed on the right side of the device. There’s no fingerprint sensor in this phone, so the back only has the camera, the LED flash, and the loudspeaker. There’s a microUSB 2.0 port at the bottom and the IR port at the top.
