The entry-level A-series at Redmi continues. The successor to last year’s Redmi A1, the Redmi A2 it will arrive on the market in the coming weeks with an unchanged exterior and color selection. At first glance, nothing has changed: the front camera hanging in the drop-shaped notch, the plastic device housing, the two cameras and the microUSB connector for wired data transfer and charging remain. The battery also remains at 5000 mAh, and charging does not accelerate from 10 watts.

The display is still 6.52″ IPS LCD with HD+ resolution and 60 Hz refresh rate. The 2 GB of RAM and the 32 GB of eMMC storage that can be expanded with a microSD remain, but the system chip changes, the Helio A22 is replaced by the recently introduced Helio G36. This is how the SoC chosen from MediaTek’s low-end range remains, but the updated chip already supports the Android 13 Go version, so the Redmi A2 will appear pre-installed with it.

One of the rear cameras will be an 8 MP unit, the second camera will probably remain the QVGA (0.8 MP) depth sensor. The front sensor can be 5 MP, as in its predecessor. According to the source, the manufacturer plans to put all this on the market in Europe at a price of 97 euros in the coming weeks. At today’s exchange rate, this can be exchanged for HUF 37,500, but together with the domestic tax burden, the A2 will probably start at the price of its predecessor in Hungary at HUF 48,000 – 49,000.
