Last week, Xiaomi announced that it will launch the Redmi A1 on September 6, along with the Redmi 11 Prime 5G and the Redmi 11 Prime 4G. The launch is key as it is expected to mark Xiaomi’s return in the budget category. The Redmi A1 in particular is expected to start at under Rs 10,000. Here’s a quick look at what these devices offer.
Powered by an unknown MediaTek processor, the Redmi A1 offers a 5,000mAh battery. Xiaomi has also confirmed that the phone will be available in three different colours. The back of the phone features a dual camera setup and comes with a leather-tight hard plastic back cover and a water drop notch on the front of the phone.
In a tweet posted by Redmi India, the company revealed that the Redmi A1 will have clean software and that the phone will be manufactured entirely in India. Also, the Geekbench listing indicates that the Redmi A1 will be powered by the MediaTek Helio A22 chip. It may also be one of the few phones that may be priced at Rs 10,000 or less.

As it turns out, there will be a 5G and non-5G variant of the Redmi 11 Prime. If we talk about the Redmi 11 Prime 5G, the phone features a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, a triple rear camera setup with a 50 MP primary sensor and a 5000 mAh battery. The only difference between the 5G and 4G variants is the chipset, with the 4G version backed by the MediaTek Helio G99 chipset.
Both variants will have a 6.58-inch Full HD + IPS LCD display with an on-screen refresh rate of 90Hz. The screen will be protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass. Redmi 11 Prime will be available in three color variants – Aqua Green, Purple and Black. The Redmi 11 Prime 5G and the Redmi 11 Prime 4G will both be available for purchase from Amazon India.
