It comes with a dual rear camera setup and has 32GB of onboard storage.
The Redmi 8A Dual price in India is set at Rs. 6,499 for the 2GB RAM + 32GB storage variant, while its 3GB RAM + 32GB storage option comes with a price tag of Rs. 6,999. Both models come in Midnight Grey, Sea Blue, and Sky White colours. Further, the open sale has been announced on the Mi.com website, though it is also live through Amazon.
