TENAA recently certified the entry-level smartphone Mi Redmi 7A from Xiaomi Redmi. The listing has revealed many specifications of Redmi 7A, according to which, the device is a big upgrade over its predecessor Redmi 6A. Redmi 6A came out last year with a starting price tag of 5,999INR. Redmi 7A Price will also be similar to that of Redmi 6A. Though Redmi 6A didn’t provide plenty more than the phone it took over, Redmi 5A, did- much to our dismay. Unlike this case, Redmi 7A comes with significant upgrades.

Redmi 7A: One More Budget Device of 2019
As per the TENAA listing, Mi Redmi 7A has a 5.45-inch (13.84 cm) screen with IPS LCD HD+ display and 720×1440 pixel resolution. Redmi 7A lacks a notch and has thick bezels. The smartphone measures 146.30×70.41×9.55mm and features an aspect ratio of 18:9. Redmi 7A isn’t a big upgrade in terms of size as the plastic body of Redmi 6A had a 5.45-inch screen with 720×1440 pixel resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio, too. It measured 147.50×71.5×8.30mm. Redmi 7A is bulkier than 6A (145g) with a weight of 150g.
A special feature of Redmi 7A is that it comes with P2i nano-coating which makes it water splash-proof. Also, the smartphone has a Polycarbonate body. In terms of processor, Redmi 7A is a relief. Thankfully, it comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 whereas Redmi 6A was powered by 2GHz quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 SoC. The processor in Redmi 7A is expected to be either of 1.4GHz Octa-core or 2.0GHz Octa-core. Regrettably, there is no Type C support. Redmi 7A has also skipped fingerprint sensor support. Notably, a 3.5mm audio jack is provided.
A massive 4000 mAH battery backs Mi Redmi 7A, in contrast with 6A’s 3000 mAH battery. This could be a major enhancement since all the low budget devices are getting a massive battery in the same price bracket.
Redmi 7A Camera Specification
Redmi 7A features a single-lens AI-based 13MP camera on the back panel and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. There are some significant features supported by AI available in Redmi 7A, namely- AI Beauty, Background Blur & Face Unlock.
