The Redmi 8A which Xiaomi released in 2019, September 30 is now looked upon as the predecessor of the Redmi 9A. The 8A was, and still is a great budget option costing around 11,500 shillings in Kenya. Like its successor, it has a 5000 mAh battery, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, and is a 4G powered smartphone. The main difference between Redmi 8A and 9A lies in the cameras and display sizes.


We always talk about the performance of a phone with respect to the phone’s hardware and software features. With Xiaomi Redmi 9A comes Android 10 with the all-new MIUI 12. MIUI is an Android-based operating system for smartphones and tablet computers developed by Xiaomi. The phone is also powered by an Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53, MediaTek Helio G25 (12 nm) chipset. Helio G25 brings the benefits of HyperEngine technology, providing smooth performance, enhanced power efficiency, and reliable, low-latency connections. Onboard is also a PowerVR GE8320 (650 MHz) GPU.


Like the Galaxy J2 Core 2020, Xiaomi Redmi 9A also comes with two cameras. One on the back is the main shooter and one front-facing lens, alias, selfie camera. The main camera here is a 13 MP lens which for the price is a decent offering. Glad to see Xiaomi not involve itself in the poor practice of adding unnecessary lenses.

Another option of the 9A would be Redmi 9C which has a triple camera (13 + 5 + 2 MP) module, check it out. And then there was that 5 MP selfie shooter which is at best, fine. Video recording is 1080p@30fps with either camera.


If you are on a slim budget but are looking for a phone with a Type-C 1.0 USB, Bluetooth 5.0, and 4G network, then Xiaomi Redmi 9A would be a great option, to begin with. The phone also has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, a hotspot, GPS with A-GPS, and yes, an Infrared port. An infrared port. a.k.a. IrDA port is a port that enables devices to exchange data without using cables. That 3.5mm jack is also present wherein you can plug the headphone and listen to your favorite content. Be sure to also check out Redmi 9


One major advantage of many budget smartphones in Kenya is that they come with large battery capacities. Take Huawei Y5p for example which comes with what seems to be a small 3020 mAh battery. Yet the same is able to last up to two days of usage. This is because of the minimal requirements and optimized performance the phone has.

This also is the case here, and better. Xiaomi Redmi 9A comes with a large 5000 mAh battery. Note 7 Lite likewise. At 5000 mAh you get the most out of any phone before the next charge is required.
