Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi has launched its latest Redmi 4A smartphone, which also serves as the first generation of the company's made-in-Indonesia products following its debut in November last year.
Manufactured in Batam in Riau Islands as part of a collaboration between Xiaomi and PT. Erajaya Swasembada, PT. Sat Nusapersada and TSM Technologies, this 4G smartphone is slated for sale at the end of February.
In terms of exterior design, the Redmi 4A’s casing is polycarbonate with a smooth matte surface, which makes it easier to grab. Despite its large battery, the smartphone is quite light, weighing only around 131.5 grams, which makes it the lightest smartphone among the Redmi series. The non-removable 3120 mAh battery will also allow users to conveniently run some apps, watch videos, or play games as its average standby period is said to reach seven days.
