Published

on

Xiaomi has recently launched its Mi 6X in China which is said to be named as Mi A2 when it comes globally, given the fact that the Mi 5X that Xiaomi launched last year in China came as Mi A1 in global markets as the first Android One smartphone by the brand. The only difference was that the Mi 5X came with MIUI while Mi A1 offers pure stock Android experience.

The speculations for the upcoming Mi A2 started after Mi 5X launch in April and it was evident from previous leaks and rumours that the Mi A2 is indeed real and will be the Android One version of the Mi 6X.

Now, Xiaomi has recently teased its next global launch on its facebook and twitter handles. The teaser ain’t about the launch of a particular product, instead, it’s more of a poll for Mi fans.

The teaser hints about the next major global launch and asks Mi fans to guess the country where the event is yet to be held. We can expect more teasers on the same nearing the launch event.

Earlier, the Mi A2 appeared on Digitec- a Swiss retailer site, listed at a price of CHF 290 (Rs 20,000 approx) for the base variant. The listing also revealed that the shipments of the device will begin from August 8 which adds to the probability of Mi A2 being a part of the next global event. The device was also spotted in a leaked hands-on video which was taken down later.

As far as specs and features are concerned, the Mi A2 will feature a 5.99-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and significant bezels on top and bottom. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz coupled with Adreno 512 GPU and will be available in 4/32GB, 4/64GB & 6/128GB RAM and storage configurations.

The device houses a dual camera setup at the back, featuring a 20MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture and a secondary 12MP secondary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, while a 20MP snapper is given at the front for Selfies. The Camera on Mi 6X is aided by certain AI features including smart scene detection and portrait mode and is expected to be equipped with the Mi A2 as well. All this is backed by a 3,010 mAh battery.

The device will be launched at a higher price compared to the Redmi Note 5 Pro due to the presence of much more powerful chipset and better Cameras. The pricing as per Digitec’s listing was CHF 290 (roughly Rs 20,000), CHF 330 (roughly Rs 22,500) and CHF 370 (roughly Rs 25,500) for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, respectively. Let’s see what actually comes at the launch event. Till then, Stay tuned.

There’s also a slight chance that this might be Mi 8i, rebranded variant of Mi 8 SE, as a recent report suggested Xiaomi is brining the younger sibling of the Mi 8 series to India soon.
