In a tweet by Donovan Sung (@donovansung) who is the Global Spokesperson for Xiaomi, it has been revealed that the Xiaomi Mi A2 Picture Perfect 20MP Cameras as the device is sometimes called, will launch in India on August 8. There is no info on the Mi A2 Lite launching alongside it.

Last year’s Mi A1 was first unveiled in India before rolling out to other markets. The Mi A2 will come with a 5.990-inch FHD+ screen, a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, and up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

It will have a 20MP front camera with AI features and a 12MP + 20MP dual camera combo on the back. Battery capacity is 3000mAh with Quick Charge 3.0. It will also have a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, a rear fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm audio jack.
