The phone features a plastic body with a leather-like texture that helps with grip and avoids smudges. Both the power and volume buttons are on the left side of the device, while the bottom side houses a 3.5mm headphone jack, micro-USB port, and mic.

The dual SIM card tray on the right has a dedicated slot for a microSD card. Interestingly, the speaker is located on the top. Sadly, we do not get a fingerprint sensor with the Redmi A1. If you want a fingerprint sensor, you can go with the Redmi A1 Plus, which is the same device with a fingerprint sensor.
