The phone is, however, likely to be available through Mi.com and Mi Home stores as well, in addition to Flipkart. To recall, the Redmi 7A debuted in China in May as a toned-down version of the Redmi 7. The phone comes with Snapdragon 439 SoC and packs a 4,000mAh battery. Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain last week teased the India launch of the Redmi 7A without revealing the official release date. He also noted that Redmi 7A India variant will an upgrade feature that is not present in the China version.
The microsite on Flipkart calls the Redmi 7A a "Smart Desh Ka Smartphone." It doesn't confirm any details around the price and availability of the Redmi 7A, though the online listing does underline the launch date as July 4. The microsite also specifies "fast processor", "Facebook-ready camera", and "long lasting battery" on the new Redmi phone.
As we mentioned, Xiaomi first brought the Redmi 7A to the Chinese market in May. The phone comes in two storage variants with 16GB and 32GB onboard storage options.
Xiaomi's Jain last week teased the arrival of the Redmi 7A in India. The phone comes as a toned-down variant of the Redmi 7₹ 7,999 that was notably launched in the Indian market back in April. The Redmi 7A variant being released in India will be slightly different from the China version. Jain has revealed in a tweet that Xiaomi is upgrading a “massive” feature for the country. He did not say which feature, though.
