Xiaomi has unveiled Redmi 2A at its annual anniversary event in China. The new smartphone will be available as an inferior version of the Redmi 2 with a price tag of 599 Yuan (approximately Rs. 6,000).

Similar to the Redmi 2, the Xiaomi Redmi 2A features a 4.7-inch HD IPS display and has 4G LTE support for high-speed data access. It is powered by a Leadcore LC1860C chipset that has a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU along with Mali T628MP2 GPU and 1GB of RAM.

The Redmi 2A comes with 8GB internal storage which can be expanded via microSD card. There is an 8-megapixel rear camera sensor along with an LED flash and a 2,200mAh battery. The smartphone has dual-SIM support with dual-standby technology and runs on Android operating system with MIUI 6 on top.

Xiaomi will start selling the Redmi 2A in China on April 8 but there is no word on its availability in some other regions such as India or Singapore.

Considering its specifications and price, the Redmi 2A could compete against popular entry-level smartphones such as Motorola Moto E (2nd Gen) and Lenovo A6000.

Beijing-based Xiaomi launched the Redmi 2 in India earlier this month with a price tag of Rs. 6,999. The smartphone is available for purchase through Flipkart and carries an upgraded list of specifications over the last year launched Redmi 1S.
