It has a 4.7 inches display size which is the perfect size for a single hand grip. The screen resolution is measured up to 720p. There are two cameras found on the device, an 8MP camera at the rear side and a 2MP front camera. It supports two SIM card slots so that you do not have to change SIM card whenever you go overseas. On top of that,it is LTE-enabled. The smartphone also comes with 2,200mAh battery size which supports fast charging.
Despite the low pricing, Redmi 2A is decent enough to bring high performance when it is used for watching videos, browsing the web or playing 3D games. There are five different colors to choose from, white minimalist, dark, yellow, green, and pink. The back cover is made of matt coating which will prevent fingerprint to leave a mark on it when it is touched.
