Announcement: Redmi 8A Dual for India

Redmi 8A Dual introduced in the Indian market -Easy modification of the Xiaomi Redmi 8A model. From the relative, the novelty is distinguished by the main camera. They added a second - 2-megapixel - module to it, and the first one was replaced - with a 13-megapixel one.

There are no other differences. Redmi 8A Dual is an inexpensive smartphone with a very weak Snapdragon 439 chipset by modern standards. Not particularly rich in RAM: it is available in two versions - with 2 and 3 GB RAM. It has a rather big screen - 6.2 ″ (the resolution for a budget device is adequate - HD +) and a very solid battery. Front camera 8 MP. When shooting, artificial intelligence helps.

The body of the three color options has a specific coating that adds to its stiffness. The smartphone is slightly protected from water - you cannot drop it into a puddle, but the rain will survive (p2i).

All this is not bad, especially considering the low price tags.
