Xiaomi is preparing to release the latest Redmi A series smartphones. Launched last month, the Redmi A1 runs Android and brings an entry-level smartphone experience. Now, Xiaomi is about to release another smartphone from its A series, the Redmi A1+. The India launch event will take place on October 14th. At the moment, the smartphone is already available in Kenya. The device received FCC certification back in August, appearing in the IMEI database the same month. A report from MySmartPrice suggests that the Indian version of this phone may have the same specs as the Kenyan version.
Redmi A1+ to launch on October 14th
The price of Redmi A1+ in India may be lower than 10,000 Indian rupees (about $121). This is indeed a real entry-level smartphone. However, recall that the Redmi A1 is even cheaper. The starting price of this device in India is 6499 Indian rupees which is about $79. The most obvious difference between the Redmi A1 and A1+ is the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on the Plus model.
