News, Smartphones

Xiaomi has unveiled its latest budget smartphone for the UK. Dubbed the Redmi 7A, the £99 device can last two days on a single charge, claims the manufacturer.

A complete upgrade over its predecessor (the Redmi 6A), it  also comes with the more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 and larger 4000mAh battery. Other improvements, claims the manufacturer, include faster 10W charger, better speakers, splash resistance, as well as the ability to receive FM radio signals without an external antenna.

The Redmi 7A features a 5.45” HD+ Full Screen Display with wide viewing angles and support for full screen gestures. The display also features low blue light eye protection certification by TÜV Rheinland, ensuring a comfortable experience for the eyes. 

The Redmi 7A sports a 12MP rear camera with large pixel size of 1.25um, meaning it’s able to capture clear images even in low-light conditions. Alongside this, there’s a 5MP front camera that includes AI face unlock capabilities. 

Furthermore, it also offers a dedicated microSD card slot, a headphone jack and splash resistance for a straightforward, convenient experience. 

Says Owen Ou, Head of Western Europe at Xiaomi:

“We’re very excited to expand Xiaomi’s offering in the UK with the launch of the Redmi 7A. With a fantastic combination of impressive battery life, powerful performance and camera quality along with convenient features such as an inbuilt FM radio antenna, the Redmi 7A is an unparalleled choice at an entry-level price,” 

Redmi 7A will be available from today starting at £99.99 at Mi.com (in Matt Black with 2GB and 32GB versions) and Xiaomi’s Mi Store (Westfield, White City) in Matt Black (2 + 16GB) and Matt Blue (2 + 32GB)
