Xiaomi’s Redmi 2 was already quite a good deal for its low cost, but the company has chosen to come up with something even cheaper, though that comes at the cost of the processor, as the Xiaomi Redmi 2A is launched with a Leadcore processor, doing nothing different with the other specs of the device.
While on the front it is the same 4.7 inch IPS display with HD resolution, the Redmi 2A internally is powered by Leadcore L1860C quad-core Cortex A7 1.5GHz processor, along with 1GB LPDDR3 RAM. We might not be able to tell about the performance, though, it shouldn’t be better than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor that powers the Redmi 2.
While the device has 8GB internal storage, there is a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. The camera combination as well stays the same as in Redmi 2, as there is a 8-megapixel camera on the back and although nothing is mentioned about the selfie shooter, we expect that to be a 2MP sensor.
There is 4G LTE connectivity support, and the device has a 2200 mAh battery packed in. While the chipset is different, Xiaomi has priced the Redmi 2A at 599 Yuan, which makes it to about Rs. 6000. Right now, the device is launched in China, and there is no information about the launch date, and whether the phone will be reaching any other markets in the coming time.
We’ll keep you posted about the same.
