We recently reported that Xiaomi could soon launch its Redmi 7A entry-level smartphone in India. Now, the company’s marketing head Anuj Sharma confirmed that the Redmi 7A will indeed launch soon in the Indian market.
However, he has not revealed the launch date but confirmed that the phone will be launched alongside Redmi K20 series or soon after that. For those who are unaware, the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are set to launch in India in mid-July.
As per the reports, the smartphone has already received an India-specific model number ‘M1903C3EI’. There’s a high possibility that this new entry-level smartphone will be launched in India along with the Redmi K20 series next month.

It comes in two variants based on the memory configuration — 2 GB RAM with 16 GB internal storage and 3 GB RAM with 32 GB internal storage. Both models come with a microSD card slot that allows users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity up to 256 GB.
In the camera department, it comes with a 13 MP sensor on the back side along with an LED flash and a 5 MP front-facing snapper for taking selfies and video calling. The phone comes with P2i nano-coating, which means the phone is splash resistant.
