Xiaomi has launched yet another iteration of their Redmi A-series smartphone – Redmi 8A Dual with a new Aura XGrip Design and dual rear cameras.
Being marketed as ‘Desh ko Dumdaar Smartphone’, Redmi 8A Dual takes a step further and brings dual cameras to the Redmi A series for the first time. The phone features a 13MP primary sensor which is supported by another 2MP depth sensor resulting in perfect portraits. The hardware comes with Xiaomi’s AI Scene Detection and AI Portrait mode. The front camera, selfies, video calls, and AI face unlock are facilitated by the 8MP camera.
Besides the camera, the phone brings an all-new Aura XGrip Design, improving on the much appreciated Aura Wave Grip Design which was introduced on the Redmi 8A. This Aura XGrip Design brings a premium experience with a mesh pattern on the rear enabling better grip while keeping fingerprints at bay.
The Redmi 8A Dual has a 6.2 inch Dot Notch HD+ IPS display with an aspect ratio of 19:9. It is powered by a 5000mAh high-capacity with support for 18W fast charging (10W fast charger inside the box). The phone also supports reverse charging through the Type-C port. Performance is taken to its best by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 439 octa-core chipset. It is available in a 3GB+32GB variant, with a 2+1 dual SIM slot. The dedicated microSD card support allows storage expansion up to 512GB.
