One of the most interesting budget modelsThis year, the Xiaomi Redmi 7A smartphone, which was introduced on the Chinese market in May, finally has a global version. Ali is offered for $ 86.49 (2 GB + 16 GB) and $ 92.98 (2 GB + 32 GB).
It is curious that it turned out to be noticeably different from the Chinese version. And not just a set of supported networks.
First, about acquisitions. In the list of 4G networks with which the global variation of Redmi 7A can work, all relevant for the Russian Federation have appeared: B3 / B7 / B20. It can not but rejoice.
The Chinese smartphone has three color options: black, deep blue and pale golden. Boring. For the global market, gold was removed, but two gradient ones were added: blue-green and red-black.
In China, the Redmi 7A is offered in three variations of memory: 2 GB + 16 GB, 2 GB + 32 GB, and 3 GB + 32 GB. The older version did not reach the global market, we decided to do with two - 2 GB + 16/32 GB.
Finally, they even replaced the camera. The “Chinese” has a 13-megapixel main module, the global version has 12 MP. They didn’t bang the selfie-camera - 5 MP with an AI-beautifier and face recognition function, which serves as a smartphone the only biometric tool - the fingerprint scanner doesn’t.
Then there was no change. The screen is a modest size of 5.45 ″ with HD + resolution, certified by TÜV Rheinland (eye protection by reducing the number of blue rays). Solid 4000 mAh battery. Some protection against moisture - P2i coating. The ability to serve as an FM radio without a headset. Separate SIM card and memory card slots.
In general, for a state employee - very good.
Official prices for the Russian market: 5917 rubles for 2 GB + 16 GB and 8490 rubles for a varacia of 2 GB + 32 GB.
Smartphones are already commercially available, although in a limited set of colors, only the blue and black versions.
