Again and again, Xiaomi is heating up the entry-level smartphone market competition in Indonesia. At the beginning of September 2018 Xiaomi returned to bring its cheap smartphone, Xiaomi Redmi 6A . How come! Xiaomi sells this smartphone for Rp1 million.
That is, this smartphone is ready to compete with a number of devices that were previously widely marketed by local manufacturers, such as those made by Advan or Evercoss . So, what does Xiaomi package this Redmi 6A? Here’s the review!
Design with 18: 9 screen
Aimed at the entry-level market, the Redmi 6A does have a design that is practically ordinary. The screen span is 5.45 inches and the resolution is only HD + . The interesting news is that this smartphone has an 18: 9 aspect ratio with a screen density of up to 295 ppi.
Packed with full screen, Xiaomi also no longer loads capacitive buttons into the Redmi 6A so this smartphone is completely different from its older generation. All navigation buttons by Xiaomi are pushed into the screen.
It’s just that the Redmi 6A’s bezel is still fairly thick. At the top, Xiaomi loads the front camera accompanied by several supporting sensors and earpieces. While on the back, there is only a single camera plus a flash LED which is placed in the upper left corner.
13 MP main camera
Indeed it is quite appropriate if the Redmi 6A is intended for entry-level users. Because Xiaomi embed the support of one main camera on the back. The lens sensor from the main camera is still the same as the one on the Redmi 5A which was introduced last year, which is 13 MP .
The embedded 13 MP main camera is still supported with the ability to quickly focus. Meanwhile, the front camera which has a 5 MP resolution has been equipped with AI Portrait Mode support so that it can create photos with a blur alias bokeh effect.
Of course if a smartphone is equipped with complete biometric security features, the device will have its own selling points in the eyes of consumers. Biometric security features in question are fingerprint and face unlock .
Only, Xiaomi does not complete the Redmi 6A with a fingerprint sensor. This might be done intentionally to reduce the production costs incurred by Xiaomi. But no need to worry, the Redmi 6A is still equipped with other biometric features, namely face unlock with the front camera.
MediaTek Helio A22
Not a few who wonder, what chipset is embedded by Xiaomi into the Redmi 6A. This question was immediately answered by Xiaomi when this smartphone was first released in China. Admittedly, the Redmi 6A is only equipped with a MediaTek Helio A22 Quad-core chipset with a 2.0 GHz clock speed.
To support the performance of embedded chipsets, Xiaomi also equip redmi 6A with 2 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 16 GB . If you have insufficient internal storage. Xiaomi also inserts a microSD slot of up to 256 GB which is separate from the dual SIM Card aka dedicated slots.
The capacity of the battery that is immersed must also be questioned by potential Redmi 6A customers. Yes! Xiaomi only complements this smartphone with a 3,000 mAh battery that is claimed to last up to six hours when used to play games.
Talking about the pinned interface, it is no different from most of the other Xiaomi smartphones that launched this year. Redmi 6A comes with MIUI 9 interface based on Android 8.1 Oreo . Of course, Xiaomi also promises to update the interface to the next level.
Price and availability
Aimed at entry-level users or those who want to have a second smartphone, Redmi 6A by Xiaomi is sold at a price of Rp1,249,000 . This smartphone itself is available in Blibli e-commerce and Mi Store on September 10, 2018 . The question is, are you interested in asking for a hand?
