The Redmi 10A smartphone’s launch date in India seems to be around the corner, although there’s no confirmation from Xiaomi. To recall, Xiaomi recently launched its new budget smartphone dubbed the Redmi 10 in India. The Redmi 10 smartphone’s first sale in India kicked off last month. The phone costs less than INR 10,000 but offers sufficiently good features and decent specs. For instance, it sports a mammoth 6.71-inch IPS LCD and packs a Snapdragon 680 SoC under the hood.
However, the most notable feature of the handset is the 6000 mAh battery unit that powers up the entire system. Now, it looks like the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is prepping to unveil another impressive handset under the Redmi 10 series. The upcoming Redmi 10 series device will carry the Redmi 10A moniker. Moreover, it is the most affordable phone from Xiaomi with a starting price of 699 yuan (about $110). Regrettably, details about the Redmi 10A smartphone’s exact launch date and price in India are scarce at the moment.
Redmi 10A India Launch Date & Other Key Details
However, noted leaker Paras Guglani has divulged vital information about the Redmi 10A phone’s launch date in India in his latest report for Passionate Geekz. According to Paras, Xiaomi is prepping to launch the Redmi 10A in India later this month. If this speculation proves to be true, the Redmi 10A could go official in the country on April 20. To recall, Xiaomi brought the pocket-friendly handset into the Chinese market earlier this year. However, the tech giant isn’t shedding any light on the new Redmi 10 series phone’s debut in India.
In the meantime, Xiaomi had its hands full since the Xiaomi 12 Pro India launch was right around the corner. For those who are unaware, the handset arrived in the country at 12 PM on April 12. Despite the lack of an official confirmation, it is highly likely that the Redmi 10A Indian variant will retain most of the specs of the Chinese model. Paras suggests that the phone will be available in two storage options. Moreover, consumers will be able to choose between three color variants.
