Xiaomi might soon upgrade it’s budget-oriented Redmi 7 series. The Chinese tech giant has confirmed that it will launch the Redmi 7A smartphone in India on 4th of July on Flipkart.
One of the primary reasons behind Xiaomi’s success in India is competitive pricing. Xiaomi has gained immense popularity in India by offering better specifications at a relatively cheaper price point than the competition. The Redmi 7A follows the same business model.
So here’s everything you need to know about the smartphone before it’s launch.

Recently, Xiaomi stated that the company had sold more than 23.6 million units of Redmi 4A, 5A, and 6A combined till April 2019. The latest addition to the Redmi A series, i.e. the Redmi 7A might perform similar to its predecessors in terms of sales.

The Redmi 7A will be available in Matte Black and Morning blue colour variants, and fortunately, the Redmi 7A still retains the 3.5mm headphone jack.
