The upcoming Redmi 8A has allegedly been revealed in all its glory. Today real-life images of the budget smartphone from Xiaomi have surfaced online. A Xiaomi smartphone with model number M1908C31C was spotted on TENAA a few days ago. It is believed that the smartphone is none other than the Redmi 8A. If this turns out to be true, it will be the first device in its lineup with a dual-camera setup.
The leaked images show the Redmi 8A with a dot-notch display and a shiny glass back. The smartphone seems to have a small chin with a printed Redmi logo. The TENAA certified Redmi smartphone looks very similar to it. However, the renders on the website had a black color while the leak photos show the handset in Red.
At the back, the Redmi 8A has a black strip at the center. The long strip houses the dual-camera setup, circular fingerprint scanner and the Redmi logo. The LED flash resides separately on the top of the camera module while ‘designed by Xiaomi’ is etched below.
The images also reveal the specs of the Redmi 8A. According to it, the smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 439 paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. It will run MIUI 9.7.11 based on Android 9 Pie.
The TENAA listing revealed that it will feature a 6.2-inch HD+ (1520 x 720 pixels) display and will have three three variants. It will be available in 2GB + 16GB, 3GB + 32GB and 4GB +64GB configuration. It has expandable memory option up to 512GB with a microSD card. The dual-camera setup consists of a 12MP primary sensor and an 8MP secondary sensor. It is backed by a mammoth 5,000 mAh battery.
The Chinese manufacturer is yet to announce an official launch date for the Redmi 8A. But looking at the recent leaks and rumors, we don’t have to wait much longer. We can expect a teaser from the company in the coming weeks. Keep tuned for more updates.
