Xiaomi’s Redmi 10A officially launched in Kenya

For quite some time, the Redmi 9A from Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi was, arguably, the best sub-Kshs 10,000 smartphone in the Kenyan market. With decent memory and storage options, it offered the best bang for buck for anyone looking for a decent smartphone experience on a budget.

However, the days have gone and the Redmi 9A has quickly fallen behind the competition. That is the scenario that Xiaomi is remedying with an announcement today of the official launch and availability of the Redmi 9A’s able successor, the Redmi 10A.

The Redmi 10A packs a 6.5-inch HD+ display, a 13-megapixel main camera at the back, a 5-megapixel snapper on the front and a 5,000mAh battery that is charged using a 10W “fast” charger. The device is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G25 chipset.

Memory and storage options range from 3 and 4 GB and 32 and 64 GB respectively. The storage is expandable up to 1 terabyte.

It runs on Android 11, of course with Xiaomi’s heavily customized MIUI (12.5) sitting pretty atop it.

The device, however, sticks with the old microUSB port that is being phased out in favour of USB Type-C.

In Kenya, the Redmi 10A comes in two colour options: Graphite Gray and Sky Blue.

Pricing information is as follows:

  • 2GB + 32GB – Kshs 12,899
  • 3GB + 64GB – Kshs 14,499
  • 4GB + 128GB – Kshs 16,499
