Xiaomi has grabbed the gadget enthusiasts’ attention last year by launching Mi A1. They have slightly modified Mi 5X to come up with their first Android One device. As we have expected, the company has released Mi A2 by altering the firmware of Mi 6X.
At a global event they conducted in Spain, the company has unveiled both Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. Although the focus was on Europe, they disclosed that Mi A2 will hit the Indian market but Mi A2 Lite won’t.
Xiaomi Launched Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite with Dual Cameras
When it comes to the specifications of Mi A2, it sports a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass protection. As we all expected, Xiaomi didn’t disappoint us in the software-front as they have included Android Oreo 8.1 in the device.
Underneath the hood, the phone packs in Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 512 GPU. You will also get RAM up to 6 GB and internal storage up to 128 GB.
Apart from the software, the main highlight of Mi A2 is its cameras. They carry AI integration for improved photos. Xiaomi integrated a 20 MP Sony IMX376 sensor with f/1.75 aperture, fixed focus, and soft LED flash for selfies. On the rear, you will get a rear dual camera setup with a 12 MP primary Sony IMX486 sensor and 20 MP secondary Sony IMX376 sensor. You will also get support for phase detection autofocus and a dual-tone LED flash.

The battery capacity is 3010 mAh and it supports QuickCharge 3.0. The company claims it can go from zero to fifty percent in 30 minutes.
Mi A2 Lite is a scaled-down version of Mi A2. It sports a 5.84-inch full-HD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch up top. Under the hood, you get Snapdragon 625 processor with 3/4 GB of RAM. You are free to choose from 32 and 64 GB of internal storage. The memory expansion allows you to have extra space up to 256 GB.
