Xiaomi introduces the Redmi 10A, bringing the brand’s latest design language to one of its cheapest smartphone line.
The Redmi 10A uses a similar camera glass on the back to the Redmi 10 Power, Redmi 10C, and more. The said island houses the Redmi logo and the low-resolution and only camera, a 13-megapixel shooter. It also managed to have a fingerprint scanner.
With that, it’s also no surprise that we’re only getting a 5-megapixel camera on the front. It sits on the traditional waterdrop notch on top of the decent 6.53-inch IPS screen with only an HD+ resolution at 1600 x 720 pixels.
It’s then powered by a budget-friendly but gaming-centric MediaTek Helio G25 octa-core processor, which you can pair with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of expandable storage.
Unlike its more expensive cousins, the Redmi 10A still ships with the Android 11 operating system. But, it does have the newer MIUI 12.5 version.
Considering the underwhelming hardware, the 5,000mAh battery should last you longer than other devices. Sadly, there’s no support for fast charging, so you’re capped with the included 10W charger.
The Redmi 10A has a starting price of INR8,499 (around Php5,800) for the 3GB/32GB and INR9,499 (around Php6,500) for the 4GB/64GB model. It will be available in India starting April 26 and will come in Slate Gray, Sea Blue, and Charcoal Black.
