The Redmi 7A is finally coming to India. And as per Manu Kumar, the device will come with a massive upgrade over the Chinese version. And with just a few hours to its launch, we can say we know for sure one of the upgraded specs.
The confirmation comes courtesy of Xiaomi India’s Managing Director Manu Jain who once again took to Twitter to rant about the upcoming device. Manu revealed that the Indian version of the device will ditch the Snapdragon 439 for the Snapdragon 730.
ROFL 🤣 🤣
Yes, we would have loved to launch it with my fav SD 625! 😁 Unfortunately our truck got stolen 🚚
Oh wait.. There’s a new 625 in the market: SD 710! 😜 Fortunately, this time we are smarter by upgrading to latest SD 730, which is 40% faster than 1 year old SD 710 🚀 https://t.co/wR8wNHMUft

That definitely isn’t the only specs bump given that the Indian head had earlier said it will come with features that everyone loved on the Mi A2 and the Redmi Note 7. The Note7 and the Mi A2 weren’t even here before the SD 730 debuted.
So it is a given that there still a few more surprises in the offing. Though it won’t be long before all that goes official.
The Chinese version of the affordable Redmi 7A boasts of a Snapdragon 439 with up to 3Gb of RAM. It has 16GB or 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded via a MicroSD card. There is a single 13MP camera on the rear and a 5MP selfie snapper. I ships with Android 9 Pie straight out of the box fueled by a further improved 4,000mAh battery.
