Redmi 8A Specifications, Price and Availability in Kenya

After Redmi 7A, Xiaomi’s sub-brand is back with another device in the Redmi A series. The “Redmi” sub-brand is Xiaomi’s alternate brand that was pinched from the main company to focus on making cheaper devices both with good specs and more value.

Take, for example, the recently announced Redmi 8A. This phone features a ton that we don’t expect in any devices going at around Ksh 10,000 in the market currently.

So, what makes it exceptional? There is a lot that makes this device stand out tall from the competition. Some direct distinctive features for this price point include;

  • USB C Type C port
  • 5,000mAh battery
  • 18W fast charging support (You get a 10W charger out of the box)
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection
  • Splash Proof P2i
  • Wireless FM
