Redmi 7A: At a glance
In the times of punch hole displays and all-screen designs, the Redmi 7A looks very much like a budget offering with its conventional display and prominent bezels. On the rear, the matte-finished polycarbonate body houses a single camera while missing out on a physical fingerprint scanner. Further, there is a 5.45-inch display with a resolution of 720x1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.
For the shutterbugs and selfie lovers
The Redmi 7A offers a single 12MP (f/2.2) Sony IMX486 rear camera with LED flash and PDAF lens. The primary camera comes with features such as AI Beauty, Auto HDR, Low-light enhancement and Burst mode. Xiaomi will also bring a Scene Detection feature via an over-the-air update in the coming days. Up front, there is a 5MP selfie camera which supports AI Face Unlock.
