Xiaomi Redmi 8A could well be the next entry-level smartphone from the house of the Chinese smartphone brand. Earlier today, we reported the Redmi 8A's appearance on TENAA, and now, the same listing has been updated with full spec-sheet of the upcoming smartphone. The Redmi 8A seems to be a major upgrade over the Redmi 7A as it's said to feature a 5000mAh battery, up to 4GB of RAM, massive 6.2-inch display and more. The Redmi 7A arrived with a 5.45-inch HD+ display, 4000mAh battery and a 12MP rear-facing camera. Also, it seems like Xiaomi will not change the hardware and camera departments on the Redmi 8A, instead, the company is focussed on offering a big display and big battery.

The Redmi 7A faced fierce competition from Realme C2 as the latter featured a big display and dual rear cameras. However, with the Redmi 8A, things will settle down for the major part. Going by the TENAA listing, the Redmi 8A will have a 6.2-inch HD+ display and there will be a teardrop notch on top, which results in higher screen-on-body ratio. In terms of the panel, it's the same HD+ one on the Redmi 8A, but we may see a bigger screen this time around.
Underneath, the Redmi 8A will have a 2.0GHz processor and it could be the Snapdragon 439 SoC we saw on the Redmi 7A. Also, the listing reveals the Redmi 8A will come in three variants- 2GB+16GB, 3GB+32GB and 4GB+64GB. It' surprising to see Xiaomi going for a 4GB RAM model with the Redmi 8A, but we will have to wait for the launch of the smartphone to know the exact details.
The rear camera on the Redmi 8A would still be a 12MP one and the front-facing camera with an 8MP unit. The phone will be backed by a 5000mAh battery- again a first on a Redmi A series phone, or maybe a first on any Redmi smartphone released till date.
Xiaomi Redmi 8A vs Redmi 7A: What are the Upgrades?
The Redmi 7A was launched in India just a few days ago at a starting price of Rs 5,999. It seems like the Redmi 8A will be a decent upgrade over the Redmi 7A in terms of on-paper specs. The Redmi 7A arrived with a 5.45-inch HD+ display and 18:9 aspect ratio, but the Redmi 8A is said to have a 6.2-inch HD+ panel similar to the Realme C2. At the heart of the Redmi 7A is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 SoC which was coupled with 2GB of RAM and up to 32GB of internal storage.
The Redmi 7A has a 12MP camera on the back, followed by an 8MP unit on the front and it was backed by a 4000mAh battery. Right now, we don't have any info on when Xiaomi is actually planning to launch the Redmi 8A, but we may see it reaching the Indian market by the end of this year.
