Recently, an overseas source said that Xiaomi is preparing to launch a new entry-level smartphone for multiple markets. The phone is currently certified by IMEI, FCC, TUV Rheinland and Geekbench 5, among others. The model 220733SL will be called Redmi A1.
The phone’s Geekbench score has been revealed, revealing some of the phone’s key specs. It is powered by a quad-core processor, Mediatek Helio A22, with all four cores running at 2GHz. It also comes with 3GB of RAM and an Android 12 built system. It scored 141 on a single-core score and 497 on a multi-core score, further indicating that this is an entry-level phone.
As for other specs, the FCC announced that the Redmi A1 is 164.67mm long and 76.56mm wide, and supports 2.4ghz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The phone had been expected to launch in China, India and other markets. But there is a big question mark over whether it will ever be launched in India, as the government plans to restrict sales of Chinese-branded phones under 12,000 rupees.
