Xiaomi Redmi 4A Specifications, Price and Features

Xiaomi Redmi 4A Features

While reading through the features of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A, you will get to see the pros and cons, and all you need to know before buying the device.


13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is sure going to break history, because it is going to be a smartphone within its price range having the most powerful camera. It will boast of a 13MP camera on its rear panel, that comes with a phase detection auto focus, which makes it possible to capture moving objects clearly. Up till date, no other smartphone having its price range can boast of this features.

Fast charging

This is another top notch feature of this Redmi series. Not only does the Xiaomi Redmi 4A boast of a decent battery, it also comes with fast charging capability added to it. This allows users to charge this device up to 100% from 0% in less than no time.

Good display

The display feature of this device is one of the best in its series. it has a dimension measuring 5inch corner to corner diagonally. The display also boast of a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. This does not make it to be perfect for viewing experience alone, but it also goes easy with the battery.

Snapdragon Processor

With a price tag as that of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A, having a MediaTek processor is a norm. On the other hand, this device surpassed them all with its Snapdragin processor. It delivers a better performance than its competitors within the same price range.


No Fingerprint sensor

The major setback of this device is that it does not have a finger print scanner/sensor. However, since it is a budget smartphone, we should not expect all of its features to be complete as compared with a high end smartphone.

Hybrid SIM card slot

The handset comes with the standard Hybrid SIM card slot, which means that it can either take dual SIM at a time or a single SIM and microSD card. This is a big deal breaker for majority users since dual SIM have turned out to be a major requirement and so is expandable storage.
