Xiaomi Mi A2 launches today in India

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi on Wednesday expanded its Android One line-up in India by bringing its Mi A2 to the country. The display has Full HD+ 1080×2160 resolution with 18:9 aspect ratio. An octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC powers the device. However, looking at the worldwide pricing of the phone which was announced to be Euro 279 (about Rs 22,500) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant and Euro 349 (about Rs 28,000) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option, it can be said that the phone will sell around the same price point only. As the name suggests, it's the successor to Xiaomi's highly praised stock Android running device. For selfies, the smartphone features a 20-megapixel front-facing camera along with front flash.

According to early revelations, the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage of the model will be flawless as the entry point for the new model.

Xiaomi Mi A2 features the same 5.99-inch IPS LCD screen that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro have.

This is Xiaomi's second phone featuring Android One (Stock Android Experience), which is based on Android Oreo (8.1). It will be exclusively sold via Amazon India, Mi.com, and Mi Home stores.

On paper, Xiaomi Mi A2 holds a 12 MP and 20 MP dual camera setup, both having a f/1.8 aperture.

It will come in Black, Gold, Rose Gold and Lake Blue colour variants. Reliance Jio customers will also get 4.5TB complimentary data along with a Rs 2,200 instant cashback.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 is an Amazon exclusive smartphone. Similar to its predecessor, the Mi A2 too, has a metal body. Connectivity options on the smartphone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, Infrared, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Micro-USB port. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and a proximity sensor. On the other hand, the phone carries a 20MP front camera with Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS). The smartphone has a 3010mAh battery capacity with Quick Charge 3.0 support. Moreover, they have plans to launch a 6GB variant in the coming months.

In the optics department, the Mi A2 features a 12MP Sony IMX486 sensor having 1.25 micron pixel size and a secondary 20MP Sony IMX376 sensor for portrait pictures.
