Xiaomi released Redmi A1+ smartphone with the tagline “Stylish Bhi, Secure Bhi”. The handset comes with minimum specification at an affordable price. Let’s examine the features and specifications of Redmi A1+ smartphone.
Redmi A1 Plus flaunts a 6.52-inch HD+ scratch-resistant dew-drop notch display with a resolution of 1600×720 pixels, 20:9 aspect ratio, and a 120Hz touch sampling rate. The display brightness is 400nits with 70% NTSC. The smartphone is manufactured using leather texture finish to provide beautiful look and smudge-free touch functionalities.
Redmi A1+ is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 processor with 2GB/3GB LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB internal storage. With IMG PowerVR Graphics, the device includes dual nanoSIM card slots with microSD card up to 512GB. The power-efficient processor delivers smoother streaming experience.
Redmi A1+ provides support for 4G, 3G, and 2G including dual SIM VoLTE HD calling and VoWiFi technologies. The smartphone offers GSM, WCDMA, TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, 802.11 b/g/n, 2.4G Wi-Fi alongside Bluetooth 5.0 support. The fingerprint sensor is placed on the rear side including headphone port.
The Redmi A1+ is backed by a powerful 5000mAh battery bundled with a powerful 10W fast charger. The device is capable of delivering up to 3 days of standby time, which is sufficient for normal usage. The addition of fast charger is also a big bonus for smartphone lovers because they will be able to quickly charge the device.
You need not have to expect any fancy here because the Redmi A1+ carries an 8MP Dual AI rear camera with a paltry 5MP front-facing snapper. You will be able to shoot basic images with these camera specifications. If you look at competing products, they provide dual or triple camera sensors but Xiaomi adopted only one sensor, which is a big disappointment.
The Redmi A1+ works with the help of Android 12, which provides a clean and fast AI with enhanced access. You can work seamlessly with the help of Android 12.
Pricing & Availability
The Redmi A1+ is available in 2GB and 3GB RAM variants with 32GB storage. While the 2GB/32GB model is priced at Rs 6999, the 3GB/32GB variant is up for grabs for Rs 7999. We would appreciate if the company integrates 64GB storage with 3GB RAM model. The product is available in Black, Light Blue and Light Green color variants. The first sale of Redmi A1+ will happen on October 17. You can expect wide availability during Christmas. The company also provides complete protection including display protection for a low cost.
Xiaomi Redmi A1+ is a basic smartphone with all features. However, the overall internal storage capacity of 32GB is disappointing when competing devices ship with 64GB storage. Moreover, the addition of 2GB/3GB RAM is also low since 4GB RAM should be the benchmark. However, the device will be useful for senior citizens who use the device only for web browsing, Whatsapp, and basic photography. The device will not be suitable for tech-savvy professionals. The cost is also high for the specifications. You will be able to purchase 4GB RAM/64GB storage phones for under Rs 7000 when Xiaomi is selling 3GB RAM/32GB storage for the same price.
