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.
When it launches, the phone will be available on Mi.com. However, Xiaomi may also partner with other online retailers such as Amazon or Walmart-owned Flipkart.
We expect Xiaomi to announce launch dates for other countries soon.
