Xiaomi again started focusing on last year’s Redmi 10 series with the launch of the new Redmi 10 in India (Redmi 10C for other markets). And now, it has introduced a new Redmi 10 series smartphone in the form of the Redmi 10A in China today. It falls in the affordable price category and is a successor to the Redmi 9A. Here’s a look at the details.
Redmi 10A: Specs and Features
The Redmi 10A looks a lot like the Redmi 10 and has a big square-shaped camera hump, which has room for a fingerprint scanner too like the Realme Narzo 50A. Although, there’s a single rear camera instead of the two seen on its siblings. It has a waterdrop notch on the display and comes in Moonlight Silver, Shadow Black, and Smoke Blue color options.
The phone sports a 6.53-inch HD+ LCD display with an aspect ratio of 20:9, 400 nits of brightness, and a contrast ratio of 1500:1. The screen also supports a sunlight screen mode. Under the hood, the Redmi 10A has an octa-core MediaTek Helio G25 SoC and supports up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The camera department is home to a 13MP AI rear camera with LED flash support and a 5MP selfie shooter. There are various camera modes like scene recognition, Portrait mode, time-lapse videos, 1080p videos, Beauty mode, HDR (for both the front and rear cameras), and more.
The Redmi 10A is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with just 10W fast charging. It sadly runs MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, a micro-USB port (which is disappointing for 2022), GPS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. If don’t know already, this isn’t a 5G phone.
Price and Availability
The Redmi 10A comes in three RAM+Storage options, and here are the prices:
- 4GB+64GB: CNY 649 (around Rs 7,700)
- 4GB+128GB: CNY 799 (around Rs 9,500)
- 6GB+128GB: CNY 899 (around Rs 10,700)
This smartphone will be available to buy, starting March 31. There’s no word on its availability in India, though.
