Xiaomi recently launched its new Android One smartphone — Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. The company has already scheduled a launch event in India on August 8 where it’ll launch the Mi A2. Now, it has been revealed that the phone will be available exclusively via Amazon India.
Previous reports have revealed that the phone’s basic model with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage won’t be launched in India. Further, the Indian unit of the Mi A2 will support Quick Charge 4.0 instead of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0.
The Mi A2 features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with 2160 x 1080 pixels and 2.5D curved glass. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor along with Adreno 512 GPU.
In India, the smartphone will be launched in two variants — 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage. There’s also a microSD card slot that enables users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity.
Coming to the camera department, the phone sports a 12-megapixel primary camera with Sony IMX486 sensor, LED flash, f/1.75 aperture and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor with Sony IMX376 sensor with f/1.75 aperture. On the front side, there’s a 20-megapixel snapper with Sony IMX376 sensor with Soft-LED flash.
The phone comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back panel. Connectivity options on the device include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz / 5GHz), Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS + GLONASS, and USB Type-C. As the Mi A2 is a part of Google’s Android One program, the phone runs on stock Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box and is powered by a 3,010mAh battery.
The Indian variant of Mi A2 will see the addition of fourth color option — Rose Gold, along with Gold, Black, and Blue colors. In Europe, the phone is priced at 249 Euros (approximately $291 / Rs. 20,000), but we expect India pricing to be lower.
