Xiaomi has teased the launch of a new Redmi smartphone. The company has confirmed that it will refresh the Redmi A-series lineup in India with the launch of the A2 series.

The Redmi A2 series was launched earlier this year in some European markets. It includes two devices, namely the A2 and A2+.

The devices are a successor to the A1 series, which was launched last year in India. Redmi’s new A-series is an entry-level focussed offering.

Xiaomi launched two smartphones under the A1 series last year in India, both of which were priced under Rs 10,000.

The upcoming Redmi A2 is also expected to be priced in the same category.

Let’s take a look at the Redmi A2 launch, specifications, features, and other details known so far.

Redmi A2 India Launch: What You Need to Know

Xiaomi will launch the Redmi A2 as one of the company’s most affordable smartphones in India. The A2 will launch in India on May 19.

The teaser post calls the A2 as “Desh ka smartphone,” which translates to “A smartphone for the country.” The entry-level smartphone has a water-drop notch at the top of the display, as seen in the teaser image.

The official event microsite confirms some key features of the phone. The A2 has a dual-camera setup on the back, next to which is an LED flash module.

The camera module design is the same as the outgoing model. It also has a fingerprint scanner, which is found in the A2+.

The devices get a new octa-core processor and a beefy battery. The devices also boot the latest Android 13 software out of the box.

Since the phones have already been launched in international markets, the specs are no longer a mystery.

The A2+ is identical to the A2, except that the former has a fingerprint scanner. Both phones sport a 6.52-inch IPS LCD with an HD+ resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels.

The display has a 20:9 aspect ratio and a standard 60Hz refresh rate support. The bezels around the display are slightly thick, which is common among phones in this price range.
There is a MediaTek Helio G36 processor under the hood.

The SoC was launched in internal markets with 3GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB of eMMC 5.1 storage. We can expect Redmi to launch a higher RAM variant of the A2 series in India.
