Adjusted benefits without being problematic
Redmi has chosen to create a terminal with tight hardware characteristics without being dramatically short. That is, no ridiculous memories or ridiculous RAM.
There will be two variants of this model, both with the Snapdragon 439 and with 2 GB of RAM. One will have 16 GB of internal memory and another with 32 GB. Both can use a microSD up to 256 GB and will have a battery of 4000 mAh.
The screen has HD + resolution with 1440 x 720 px and a diagonal of 5.45 inches, with 18: 9 ratio. That means that together with the battery and the processor we are possibly facing one of the mobile phones with the best autonomy in the market.
This will help Android 9 and also MIUI 10. It will have FM radio but no fingerprint sensor and it has not been specified if the charging port will be microUSB or USB C although it is probably the first.
Of course, we will have resistance to water, although only to splashes and light rain.
Price and availability
The price of this model is 549 yuan (about 70 euros) for the 2/16 GB version and 599 yuan, (about 80 euros) for the 3/32 GB version. We hope it arrives in Spain but has not yet been confirmed.
