It seems like last week when the Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi launched its Redmi 7A, budget segment phone. But, now it seems that Xiaomi also wants to take a part of the pie in the festive season which is just around the corner in India. What better way for Xiaomi to do it than to launch another budget segment phone. Well, Xiaomi seems to be doing just that with the launch of the Redmi 8A. It is also worth noting that Xiaomi will be launching the Redmi 8A in India first. Also, before the launch of the device, the company has revealed a lot about the phone. We now know a lot about the design, specifications and other things about the Redmi 8A and we are not going to keep it all to ourselves. Here is what we know about the Redmi 8A till now.
Redmi 8A: New Design with Waterdrop Notch
The biggest change that the buyers of the Redmi 8A will notice is that the design of the phone has been given a big revamp. As compared to the previous generation devices and even the Redmi 7A, the Redmi 8A will sport a different design.

There is also no news about whether the Redmi 8A will sport a Qualcomm SoC or a MediaTek SoC.
The Xiaomi Redmi 8A will be launched on September 25, and it will be priced similar to the Redmi 7A. Notably, the Redmi 7A retails in two variants priced around the Rs 6,000 mark, and we expect the Redmi 8A to follow on the same footprints. It is also likely that a few days later, the Redmi 7A could see a price cut.
