Talking about the specs, the Redmi 6A also features a similar 5.45″-inch HD+ (1440 × 720 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, as the Redmi 6. Under the hood, it is powered by a Quad-Core MediaTek Helio A22 12nm processor clocked at 2GHz and coupled with IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU handling graphics. Memory-wise, it comes in two storage variants — either 16GB or 32GB of Internal storage with 2GB RAM both. There’s also an option to expand the storage up to 128GB via microSD card slot. Coming to the camera, it sports a 13-megapixel single rear camera with LED flash and 5-megapixel front-facing camera with AI Portrait mode. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9 and soon upgradeable to MIUI 10. For an entry-level category, so it lacks a Fingerprint sensor and a dual 4G VoLTE functionality.
