The internet has been abuzz with rumors surrounding a new entry-price competitor called Xiaomi Redmi A1 Plus. Today the newcomer popped up on the TDRA certification link (based in UAE), finally putting an end to controversies about this phone. The official debut should be on its way, likely at the same time as Redmi A1.

Per the latest reports, the Chinese mega-brand is seeking approval from TDRA for their new low-cost catalog addition dubbed Xiaomi Redmi A1 Plus. Previously reported IMEI database listing and the latest TDRA sighting hint toward an imminent launch.

Redmi A1Plus is still in its initial phase of pre-debut arrangements, so details are pretty scarce. For now, the moniker and model number are the only details that have appeared on the internet. Listed on the certificate is the model number "220733SFG," assigned to the newcomer Redmi A1 Plus.

The rumor mill reports that A1 plus and A1 are twins. Based on that, A1's expected specs should align perfectly with A1 Plus. Let's see what kind of hardware this phone packs.

The upcoming addition to the Xiaomi price list aka the Redmi A1 presumably runs on the Android 12 operating system and has MediaTek's Helio A22 SoC (integrated with PowerVR GE6300 GPU). The base variant will probably have 3GB of memory and 32GB of storage space. A1's recent submission in the Geekbench database revealed some interesting tidbits about the phone.

Geekbench gives Redmi A1 a score of 141 for Single-Core performance. Its Multi-Core score tops at 497. We can categorize it as a sub-entry-level performance. It's too early to speculate on Redmi A1 and A1 Plus's specifications like camera, battery, storage variations, security features, phone design, and color options, but the details should start pouring in soon. Being the plus variant, Redmi A1+ will cost more than its counterpart A1.
