Redmi A1+ debuts in India, sales begin October 17
Xiaomi’s Redmi launched the Redmi A1 in India earlier last month and today the company introduced the Plus model in the Asian country. It comes in 2GB/32GB and 3GB/32GB configurations, priced at INR7,499 ($91/€93) and INR8,499 ($103/€105) respectively.
However, as part of the Diwali celebrations, both versions will be sold at a discount of INR500 ($6/€6) for a limited time. You can buy one in Black, Light Blue or Light Green colors from October 17 via Xiaomi’s official Indian website, Flipkart, Mi.com and offline retail stores across the country.
However, the Redmi A1+ is not a completely new smartphone. It’s a Redmi A1 with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and an option for 3GB of RAM. The Redmi A1 comes in a single 2GB/32GB configuration in India and is available for INR6,299 ($76/€78) via Xiaomi’s Indian website and Amazon.in.
Redmi A1+ is powered by Helio A22 SoC and runs MIUI 12 based on Android 12 (Go Edition). It’s built around a 6.52-inch HD+ display with a notch for the 5MP selfie camera, and its rear panel – with a leather texture finish – features a dual camera system consisting of an 8MP primary camera and a QVGA unit.
The rest of the Redmi A1 Plus’ highlights include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 512GB, and a 5,000mAh battery charged through a microUSB port at up to 10W.
