Xiaomi Mi A2, A2 Lite launched: India availability, specifications and more

Xiaomi Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite Android One smartphones have been launched. The Mi A2 is the successor of the Mi A1, which was the company's first Android One smartphone.

Both of the phones come with an Android One support, which works on Android Oreo (8.1) version.

Essentially, the Mi A2 Lite has the same underpinnings as its predecessor, albeit with a refreshed design for 2018.

As per previous reports, the Xiaomi Mi A2 with 4GB RAM/ 32GB storage could be priced at RON 1,288 (roughly Rs. 22,200) and the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant may come with a price tag of RON 1,424 (roughly Rs. 24,600). Mi A2 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space will cost Euro 349.

Xiaomi's much anticipated Android One handsets, the Mi A2 and Mi A2 lite, are going to be unveiled today in Spain. The standard Xiaomi Mi MAX 3 is running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Octa-Core chipset, whereas the Xiaomi Mi MAX 3 Pro is running on the shiny new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Octa-Core chipset, which is the first non 800 series chipset from Qualcomm based on 10nm FinFET architecture and is the first 700 series chipset from the US-based silicon company.

The display on the Mi A2 is 5.99-inches large with Gorilla Glass 5 on top. It could also have 12MP + 5MP dual-rear cameras, alongside a 5MP selfie sensor. Coming to optics, Mi A2 will sport a rear dual camera system comprising of a 12MP lens coupled with a 20MP f/1.75 lens. While not much has changed from the Mi A1 to the Mi A2, there are still a few things that the company has chose to differently with the latter.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite features a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display with a screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixel along with an aspect ratio of 19:9.

What Xiaomi could have also done differently is add a fast charging capability to the Mi A2 since the chipset supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 technology.

Xiaomi is live streaming the Mi A2 launch, so you should be able to catch all the updates without missing anything.

Earlier this month we examined firmware files dated in March, which led to the conclusion that a new Xiaomi flagship (code-name: beryllium) would be powered by the Snapdragon 845 and would launch in worldwide markets, specifically including India.

In terms of optics, the smartphone has a 12 MP primary sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor along with an 8 MP selfie camera. The Mi A2 will go on sale in Spain starting 10th August, in France on 27th July, and in Italy and India on 8h August. Secondary camera of the device is a 20MP sensor with front-facing LED flash and a f/2.2 aperture. For the front, it has a 5-megapixel camera.
