Xiaomi Redmi 6A – Budget Smartphone with Crisp Features

Xiaomi Redmi 6A is one of the freshest smartphones from Xiaomi to be targeted at the budget segment. The phone possesses the Android Oreo OS, MediaTek Helio chipset and the Full View display feature. Check out the Full Specifications, Features, Price and where to buy the phone.

Do you remember we looked at Xiaomi Redmi 6, a low cost power-packed smartphone from Xiaomi? Well, there’s an even cheaper release from the brand which is Xiaomi Redmi 6A. It’s no surprise the Redmi 6A is cheaper because Xiaomi’s A series are usually the cheapest line of smartphones from the Asian giant.

On the smartphone’s lineup of specifications, there’s the Android Oreo (Go edition) as well as MediaTek Helio chipset. Don’t forget that the Go edition makes room for budget mobiles to have a taste of what flagship Oreo software looks like. The idea alone of getting these cool features and a host of others at a relatively cheap price just tickles my fancy.

It’s time to get a deeper observation of the phone; go grab a popcorn.

Xiaomi Redmi 6A Quick Review – Every Tiny Detail Worth Knowing

A blend of polycarbonate and metallic material were enough to express the beautiful physique of the smartphone. And its rear gets highlighted by the camera setup at the top left corner. Other than the single camera present & fingerprint sensor absence in the Redmi 6A’s rear design, there’s no difference to the Redmi 6’s design which had dual cameras & a fingerprint scanner. You won’t have the issue of carrying around a heavy smartphone thanks to the 145g weight and 8.4mm thickness.

In the display department, Redmi 6A utilizes the same HD+ resolution as the Redmi 6 although on a slightly lesser 5.45-inch IPS screen. The resolution teams up with 295PPI to ensure the display’s output is very crisp. The display also gets the Full View 18:9 aspect ratio, making the screen estate more adorable.

As Xiaomi’s MIUI is one of the most talked about UI in the Android world currently, the 9th iteration (MIUI 9) gets thrown in the mix alongside the Android Oreo Go edition. Moving onto the memory segment, the 2GB RAM on the phone dishes out quality multitasking. A moderate 16GB ROM stores various forms of files on the phone. For more storage duties, the SIM 2 slot functions as the memory card slot.

Being budget in nature doesn’t diminish the camera qualities on the smartphone. In fact, the rear camera executes image capturing actions with a 13MP shooter blessed with f/2.2 aperture and a LED flash. Up front, a 5MP camera deals with the proper selfie shots.

Under the hood, MediaTek Helio A22 works endlessly with a quad-core processor to deliver good performance on the device. Wrapping up, the battery sector is championed by a non-removable Li-Ion 3,000mAh battery.
