Xiaomi Malaysia just launched another affordable phone on our shores, the Redmi A1. Touted as an entry-level device, the A1 retails at merely RM359 locally; perfect for those who are on a tight budget.
For that kind of money, the Redmi A1 features a large 5,000mAh battery with support for 10W fast charging, so it should be able to offer above average battery life. Aside from that, it’s also powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
Other specifications of the A1 include a 6.52-inch 1600 x 720 HD+ display, an 8MP rear camera with an “auxiliary lens” to enable portrait shots, a 5MP selfie camera, and three colour options: Light Blue, Light Green, and Black.
The Redmi A1 is now available for purchase in Malaysia for RM359. Though it only features a modest set of hardware – it’s an entry-level phone, after all – the A1’s generous 5,000mAh battery may just appeal to folks who want an affordable phone with long battery life.
