Xiaomi is expected to launch its latest Android One smartphone in India on August 8. The company had earlier released a poster teasing the launch and we could gather from the poster that the device will be sold exclusively on Amazon India. The Mi A2 pre-order page was reported to have gone live briefly ahead of the launch, revealing the price tag and confirming a few details.
One of the details which seem to have been confirmed is that the 4GB RAM + 32GB storage variant won’t be available in India. The Amazon product page shows that the Mi A2 will be available for Rs. 17,499 (~$255). The model is only listed as having 64GB storage with no mention of the RAM size. The price tag easily suggests that this can’t be the 6GB + 128GB variant which is the third variant. For avoidance of doubt, the Mi A2 is available only in 4GB + 32GB, 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB variants.
The price tag is way lower than the 279 euros (~$326) RRP with which the device was launched in Spain. Perhaps, the India version is manufactured in India, thus reducing tax and other importation costs. We’ll have to wait until it is officially launched to know if the price is actually accurate. The Mi A2 Amazon India pre-order page has been removed, replaced with a “Notify me” page about the launch which will take place at 4 pm IST (GMT +5:30).
