Xiaomi Redmi 8A is a prominent smartphone in the budget segment with many advantages such as a large battery, new Snapdragon chip, AI camera and trendy water drop screen.

Redmi 8A has a completely new design “Aura Wave Grip”. This design makes the back of the Redmi 8A unique and has better grip. Of course, the dominant material on phones is still plastic

The backlight used is IPS LCD with HD + resolution (720 x 1520 pixels) so it will be sufficient quality to use in this cheap segment

Xiaomi Redmi 8A has 3GB of RAM (or 2GB depending on the version), 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor running on Xiaomi’s famous MIUI 10 interface (on Android 9 Pie platform)

Xiaomi Redmi 8A is superior to its predecessor as the battery. It has a battery capacity of up to 5,000 mAh and supports 18W fast charging. Inside the retail box, Xiaomi offers a 5V / 2A charger, so if you want to make the most of 18W charging technology, you need to buy an external QC3-enabled charger.

Xiaomi Redmi 8A uses the main Sony IMX363 (12MP) camera sensor just like the Pixel 3a. In general, both front and rear camera photos also have a slight color blur, even in good daylight conditions

The 8MP selfie camera in portrait mode produces quite magical photos, accompanied by many beauty effects that AI supports.
