Xiaomi Redmi A1+ is here to top the best under 10k segment in Kenya
Xiaomi is launching a new A-series device in the market this coming week. It’s called the Redmi A1+ and it will be a sub-10k phone – seemingly going back to the good old days when the 5A, 6A, 7A, 8A and 9A dominated the best under 10k smartphones lists.
The new Redmi A1+ is powered by a now quite old Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 processor. It has a 6.52 inches display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. It comes with either 2 or 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. You can expand storage with a dedicated microSD slot included.
At the back there’s a fingerprint scanner. The main camera is 8MP and there’s an extra 0.3MP lens for depth details. At the front there’s a 5MP selfie camera housed in the tiny notch.
There’s a 5000mAh battery which charges via a micro USB port (wish it was Type-C).
The new phone wins no accolades for specs. It’s basically Xiaomi’s try at keeping a hold of the sub $100 segment – a segment that has felt quite ignored by different brands in the past few years.
This article will be updated with pricing details when those become available. There’s also a Redmi A1 which we don’t yet have confirmation on availably in the Kenyan market.
