Xiaomi Nepal is launching the Redmi A1 phone soon in Nepal. A new addition to the budget lineup, Redmi A1 comes with entry-level features. The phone arrives with near-stock Android OS instead of MIUI and has a Mediatek A22 chip. Let’s know more about specs, features, & Redmi A1 price in Nepal (Expected).
Design and Display
The phone boasts an entry-level design language with a plastic frame, plastic back, and a glass front. But the back panel has a texture leather-type design on it. As expected, it is not leather but looks better with that design. Also, the camera module is clean and resembles its expensive siblings. There is a power key and volume rockers on the right side. While it misses out on a fingerprint scanner.
Coming to the front side, Redmi A1 houses a 6.52-inch LCD panel with a teardrop notch. It is an HD+ panel with 1600 x 720 pixels and has a peak brightness of 400 nits. There is a static 60Hz refresh rate here and the screen-to-body ratio is 88.89%. As an entry-level phone, it has a bigger chin on the bottom.
The phone packs in the power of an Helio A22 chipset. It is an entry-level chip with a 12nm architecture build. For the configuration, the silicon is a Quad-core processor with 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 cores. On the graphics side, there is an IMG PowerVR GE-class GPU. Redmi has opted for the Android 12 Go edition on this phone instead of MIUI. So, the phone provides a near-stock Android experience which is also lighter for the quad-core chipset. For memory config, the phone comes in only a 2/32GB variant. The RAM and internal storage types are LPDDR4x RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage respectively.
Coming to the optics, the Redmi A1 sports a dual camera setup on the rear side. The primary camera is an 8MP resolution one and the secondary camera is a 2MP depth-sensing unit. For selfies, the phone has a 5MP front camera on the teardrop notch. The company has not mentioned videography capabilities, but it’s likely that it could shoot max at HD resolution at 30fps.
The device gets its juice from a 5000mAh battery. The company is claiming it to last for 30 days standby time. And it comes with a 10W charger bundled in the box. Talking about other specs, the phone comes with Dual 4G connectivity, Dual VoLTE, VoWifi, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 2.4Ghz, GPS, AGPS, Glonass, and Beidou for connectivity.
