Xiaomi Redmi 4a spotted in new dark gray color

Xiaomi Redmi 4a spotted in new dark gray color

Xiaomi has been rocking the value smartphone segment pretty hard lately and the Redmi 4a is currently the company's cheapest handset on offer. At around €110, it still packs surprisingly capable hardware and the Chinese manufacturer appears to be looking to expand on its ultra-budget formula even further.

We have no official confirmation yet, but the Redmi 4a has been spotted online in a new dark gray finish. Back in November last year, the handset originally came out in Gold and Rose Gold versions, so this is a refreshing alternative. Plus, the new shade also comes with a black front bezel - a first for the model.

Along with the new paintjob, the source also mentions a higher capacity storage version for the classic Redmi 4a, that is to say the Gold or Rose Gold one. This information seems to come from a few product listings on Aliexpress. However, feedback on these is scarce and not a single buyer seems to have successfully picked up a 32GB version and written back yet. This is probably a case of old listings being updated to reflect the new model, so feedback should be coming shortly. Perhaps a 32GB dark gray option as well.

Other than these changes, the new Redmi 4a units come with familiar specs: 5-inch IPS screen of 720p resolution, Snapdragon 425 chipset, 13MP, plus 5MP camera setup and a 3,120 mAh battery.

WhatsApp to get PiP video calls
WhatsApp beta version 2.17.265 for Android comes with a new feature, one that is enabled by default for those devices that are running the Android O Developer Preview. The feature would let you minimize the video call window into a smaller window so you can keep your video conversation going while answering another WhatsApp conversation.
We’re not sure if the small window with the video chat is a floating window that can be dragged around, nor do we know if the video conference would continue even after minimizing WhatsApp. If so, this would be one of the first video calling apps to allow this type of multi-tasking on a smartphone platform. Are you an avid WhatsApp user who would love the idea of a pop-out video calling feature?
