Xiaomi launched the Redmi A1 in India last month. This is the second smartphone in the Redmi Go series to run Android Go.
A plus variant of the A1 has been leaking multiple times over the past few weeks. In Kenya, the Redmi A1+ is now sort of official.
Xiaomi Kenya’s official social media accounts tease the arrival of the Redmi A1 Plus on October 7. The phone, however, is already available on Jumia.


From the leaked renders, the Redmi A1+ will be very similar to the Redmi A1. The only major difference between the two phones is the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner on the back of the Redmi A1+. Apart from that, both devices will have the same specs and designs.

The connectivity options include Dual SIM with Dual 4G LTE and VoLTE, A-GPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth 5.0, Wifi, USB Type-C port, FM Radio, and a 3.5 mm audio jack. It runs on Android 12 OS without any custom skin on top. The device measures 9.09 mm thick and weighs 192g.
