redmi phone

Earlier this week, the Chinese smart device maker revealed that the company had achieved a great success by shipping 1 million Mi brand units in just eight days. However, this was sufficient for the said tech giant to set an unbreakable record when the competition is fierce.

Today, Xiaomi's managing director and the global vice president Manu Kumar Jain revealed that the company leads Redmi 5A and 6A phones in India with a market share of 48%. He said that "1 out of 2 smartphone users choose Redmi 5A and Redmi 6A over all other smartphones in ₹5000 to ₹7000 price segment".

Jain further said that the company will soon launch Redmi 7A in the Indian market. He did not confirm the exact release date of the upcoming mobile phone, but just teased "Redmi 7A is coming soon." In India, 7A is expected to be officially released in the mid-July.

Redmi 7A, on the other hand, is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chipset instead of Helio A22 Processor and will be launched with the Adreno 505 graphics processor. The device in the talk runs on the Android v9.0 pie operating system, but devices without fingerprint sensors are boring for some users. Because the estimated price of the phone is Rs. 5,535, so expecting a lot of features is really unfair.
