Unannounced Redmi A1 leaks with specs renders and a live photo

Victor, 03 September 2022

Xiaomi appears to have a new budget Redmi phone on the way. The Redmi A1, not to be mistaken with the quite old Xiaomi Mi A1 (Mi 5x), was just featured in a couple of extensive leaks. First things first, though - Xiaomi just dropped an official teaser for the device, alongside some high-quality renders that showcase a couple of nice, soft pastel colors for the handset and a leather texture style finish for its back.

The teaser page also mentions a 5,000 mAh battery. As for the rest of the specs, we have to turn to one of the leaks. The Redmi A1 is said to pack a 6.52-inch, 1600 x 720 pixel, 20:9, HD+ display with a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset, coupled with LPDDR4X RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage. All of that, plus the 5,000 mAh battery with 10W charging, dual SIM and microSD card slots, 3.5mm jack and FM radio, will be packed inside a 164.9mm x 76.75mm x 9.09mm, 192g body.

The camera setup includes an 8MP, f/2.0 main snapper with an f/2.2 supplementary camera, likely a depth sensor. On the front - a 5MP, f/2.2 selfie. Other known features include Bluetooth 5.0 and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi n, as well as Android 12.

Last but not least, we also have a live photo of the device. Unfortunately, it showcases its front rather than the much more interesting leather-style back side. There is no word on pricing yet, but we do know from Xiaomi themselves that the Redmi A1 is the first from the all-new Made In India Redmi smartphone series and will be getting a global launch.

Well. It has a hd+ disllay rather than fhd+, so it's clearly aimed at people who can't tell the difference.

Theres no way xiaomi will use a weak quadcore A22 thats so weak even for 2015 standard. They can use Unisoc tiger or even JLQ if they really have to make it cheap. Tho i expect no less than SD680. But clearly not mtk A22, its 2022 ffs

Good design Meh CPU Didn't realy care both the display or the camera. Memory is aslo understandable since it use Go version. But it would be better if they choose octa core like A25/SC series Or atleast Unisoc T310 (quad core A7...
