So far Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro. We have already talked extensively about these two devices, so we have to focus on what will come from now. Today TENAA has published the certification of the Xiaomi Redmi 8A. This device could be presented as the most economical option of the new series. We have been seeing these terminals in stores for several years as one of the cheapest and basic options. They are mobile that come with just enough to have a decent Android experience and perform the basic tasks of the operating system.
Xiaomi wants to renew the Redmi 7A and will do so with a new device of the new series. The features have not yet leaked, but its design has been completely revealed by TENAA. There is no doubt, it is the official design, as it has been certified by the Chinese agency.
This is the design of the new Xiaomi Redmi 8A
Currently, in the Xiaomi store, the Redmi 7A sells for about $99. This Redmi 8A could arrive for a very similar or slightly higher price for being the new model. Its design will be quite similar to that of the Redmi 7A, since again it will be plastic. It will include a single sensor in the back and we will not have a fingerprint sensor. It is a basic design focused on being able to offer an improvement in the internal components in this price range.
In the photographs of TENAA, it seems that the new Redmi 8A will arrive with a notch on the screen. This is new, as the Redmi 7A features a traditional front with large frames. It is a point in favor, because in the same size the company could reach 5.8 inches instead of 5.45 of the Redmi 7A.
Within the basic Redmi design, we can see a central strip on the back that gives it a much more attractive touch. It is expected that it does not arrive with USB C, although with a headphone jack.
Now that the Xiaomi Redmi 8A has been certified we can expect it to be presented in the coming weeks. It will arrive first to China and maybe soon after to our markets.
