Xiaomi Mi A2 & A2 Lite Smartphones Launched in Spain Price Features Specifications & Products Revealed

At an event in Madrid, Spain, the Chinese phone maker today introduced the highly rumored Mi A2 which, as the leaks suggested, is essentially a global variant of the Mi 6X which was launched months ago.

The device is 8.75mm thick and this gives room to the hefty 4,000 mAh battery. This year's Xiaomi Mi A2 is based on a almost identical hardware to that of the Mi 6X - the successor to the Mi 5X. It comes preloaded with a stock build of Android 8.1 instead of the company's own MIUI and will be one of the first Android phones to receive the forthcoming P update. Whereas, the Mi A1 has a 1920 x 1080 px IPS LCD panel. Whereas, the Mi A1 had the Snapdragon 625 with the Adreno 506 GPU. The same 12MP and 20MP dual rear camera setup is also present on the MiA2, as well as the 20MP front snapper. For the front, there is a 20-megapixel shooter with a f/1.8 aperture for selfies and video calling. On the front, Xiaomi Mi A2 has a 20-megapixel selfie camera capable of delivering bokeh mode (DSLR-like shallow depth-of-field). It is powered by a 3,010mAh battery. A smartphone associated with the brand "Pocophone" was also listed to come in two storage variants - 64GB/128GB internal storage with 6GB RAM.

Even though the Mi A1 did really well, especially in the Indian market, many complained that the smartphone was slightly on the expensive side.

The Xiaomi Mi A2's biggest highlight, of course, is the software. Entry-level, because, the price of the Mi A2 could be under the Rs. 15,000 price bracket.

Xiaomi Mi A2 listed on two popular online retail stores for pre-orders ahead of launch

Notably, Xiaomi hasn't officially revealed any particular specifications of the two new Mi-Series models, but the rumour mill has reported much about both. This brings us to the specifications of the Mi A2. Xiaomi doesn't operate in the U.S., so it's unlikely the A2 or A2 Lite will show up on this side of the world. The phone which we all expected to see alongside the Mi Max 3 was spotted on Qualcomm's website filed under devices powered by the Snapdragon 710. The teaser also hinted at a feature that will allow users to change focus between background and foreground, depending on your preference. Mi A2 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space will cost Euro 349.

Coming to the prices, the upcoming Mi A2 Lite has been listed for £209.99, which roughly translates to Rs 14,421 on conversion.

The Mi A2 will be available in 40 markets across Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and the Americas. The company has also emphasized the AI capabilities of both the smartphones through the launch.

You will be able to buy the Mi A2 in three different colours - Gold, Blue, and Black.
