Remember the Xiaomi device that we saw on TENAA last week with a notch? It appears it is the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite and it is heading to Singapore.
A Xiaomi device with model number M1805D1SG was seen on the website of Singapore’s IMDA (its equivalent of the FCC or TENAA). The page mentions that the device will be marketed as the Mi A2 Lite.
The model number of the device is similar to that of some other phones seen on TENAA last week. Those phones have model numbers M1805D1SC, M1805D1SE, and M1805D1ST. As you can see, the only differences from the Singaporean version are the last two alphabets. Although most sites have referred to the phone as the Redmi 6, we now know it will launch as the Mi A2 Lite in Singapore.
According to TENAA, the phone(s) will have a 5.84-inch screen with a notch at the top. The resolution of the display is FHD+. It will be powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz. When it launches, it will be available in 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM variants with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB of storage respectively.
Like the Mi 6X which is expected to launch as the Mi A2 later, the Mi A2 Lite will also have dual rear cameras. One is a 12MP sensor and the second is unknown at the moment. A 5MP selfie camera sits within the notch.
There is also fingerprint scanner on the back of the device. The A2 Lite will come with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and pack a 3900mAh battery (~4000mAh).
There is no info on when it will launch but it shouldn’t be far off.
