Xiaomi’s Redmi brand launched the Redmi 8A, the company’s budget smartphone in India back in September starting at Rs. 6499 on Flipkart and mi.com as well as Mi Home Stores. Today the company has announced open sale for the phone through these platforms. I can say this phone has the best camera in the price range, thanks to Sony IMX363 sensor
