This also proves how brave Xiaomi still consistently issued a new product even though in general the economic conditions are still not stable due to the pandemic.
Well, this new Xiaomi product is actually a reformer of the Redmi 8A series that has slid first. The name Pro on the A series line up is also somewhat new. So what’s interesting about this Redmi 8A Pro series?
In general, the appearance of Redmi 8A Pro is not much different from Redmi 8A. At the front for example, there is a screen with small bangs measuring 6.22 inches with an aspect ratio of 19: 9. The pixel strengths are also similar, 720 x 1520 pixels. Likewise with the size or dimensions of 156.5 x 75.4 x 9.4 mm.
The Redmi 8A Pro screen retains the protective Corning Gorilla Glass 5.0. For us, this is a plus because Corning Gorilla Glass 5.0 is usually found on middle to upper class smartphones.
Although there are similarities, but this Redmi 8A Pro seems to have a more robust design. This is seen from the choice of colors and patterns appearing patterned x-line. The style makes the Redmi 8A Pro more comfortable to hold and not slippery.

For color choices, Redmi 8A Pro has three choices namely Sky White, Sea Blue, and Midnight Gray which have a firmer impression.
The location of the rear camera has not changed, is in the middle but the Redmi 8A Pro has two camera lenses instead of one and the location of the flash is now above the lens not below. The rest nothing has changed like the location of the volume rocker, sim tray is also a USB-type C charger slot, still the same as the Redmi 8A.

The combination of dual Redmi 8A Pro cameras will produce images with better bokeh effects. Because the two cameras function to help produce the effect of depth of field or depth. While for the front camera still relies on the same sensor with Redmi 8A with 8MP F / 2.0. The PDAF feature on the Redmi 8A Pro camera will greatly help produce better photos.
The ability of the front camera and back camera of the Redmi 8A Pro can be used to record 1080p / 30 fps video. Thanks to the HDR feature, the resulting video is quite satisfying for a smartphone of Rp1 million.
The front camera of the Redmi 8A Pro can not only produce good selfies, but you can use it to increase the security of the device with face recognition. This was possible thanks to the help of AI. In addition, the rear camera is now integrated with the Google Lens application, a feature that allows you to translate words just by capturing images with the camera.

With clock speeds of up to 2.p GHz, Redmi 8A Pro can accompany you to play popular games such as PUBG, AoV or Mobile Legend. Yups, of course with the appropriate graphic settings so as not constrained.

One other advantage of the Redmi 8A Pro is that it supports 18W fast charging. Although this charger18W device is sold separately.
Redmi 8A Pro brings significant changes compared to the previous series. Dual camera features with Google Lens capability are worth considering.
