Please note this product is a "Special Import" item which means that we import it for you, once an order is placed and paid for. Normally, these items arrive with us within 7-10 working days from order assuming no issues with stock availability. All "Special Import" items carry a warranty of 12 months. A restocking fee will apply for returns under the "Change of Mind" clause, due to the product being imported specially for you.
The main change in the Redmi 8A when compared to the Redmi 7A is its 19:9 aspect ratio 2.5D curved glass screen. It has a large 6.22-inch HD+‘Dot Notch’ display with a pixel resolution of 1520 × 720 pixels and a pixel density of about 270 PPI. The display is bright, thanks to 400 nits brightness and 1500:1 contrast ratio and the colors are decent since it has 70.8% of NTSC color gamut. Sunlight legibility is good, since it has a Sunlight display to adjust the contrast of each pixel in real time, so images are less affected by glare. It also has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection that you rarely find in a smartphone in the price range.
Above the display there is an earpiece on the top edge. The usual set of proximity and ambient light sensors are present on the bezel, but these are hardly visible. Even though this a budget phone, Xiaomi doesn’t miss out gyroscope and magnetic sensors in this phone. There is also an 8-megapixel camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture.
On the back there is a 12-megapixel camera with LED flash. This has slight camera bump, but it doesn’t show due to the design. Even though the phone has a large screen, it is compact to hold. It has about 81% screen-to-body ratio, better than 74% screen-to-body ratio in the predecessor. Unlike the predecessor, this has a new Aura Wave Grip Design that offers tiny patterns that offers a better grip and doesn’t get scratched easily. The plastic back attracts dust, but it is not prone to smudges easily.
It runs Android 9.0 (Pie) out of the box with MIUI 10.3 on top with Android security update for August, 2019. MIUI 10 that was introduced last year brings several features including full-screen hand gestures and improved recent menu that takes advantage of the full-screen displays, improved single-finger swipe down gesture to expand notifications, redesigned volume sliders and more. It has all the usual set of features such as Dual Apps, Second Space, App Lock, Quick Ball and more.
