Xiaomi Mi A2 launched in India for Rs 16,999

In this scenario, should Mi A2 be the purists first choice on a budget? The device will be the successor to the Mi A1 which was previously launched in the sub-continent.

The Mi A2 device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with 4 GB and 6 GB variants.

The 4GB/64GB variant of Xiaomi Mi A2 smartphone will be available in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Lake Blue color variants. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The 4GB variant of the smartphone will be available for Rs 16,999, while the 6GB variant will soon be launched in India. The announcement from Xiaomi, posted on Weibo, does not reveal the storage on the phone, so lets hope it is at least 128 GB since the device does not have microSD reader.

Talking about raw specifications of the Mi A2 camera, the device comes with a 20 megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 12 megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture. Up front, there's a 20MP camera with Sony IMX376 sensor and Xiaomi's all new Super Pixel technology. It measures 158.7 × 75.4 × 7.3 mm and weighs 168 grams.

For connectivity, the phone comes with the latest Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C for data syncing and charging, IR blaster and other basic connectivity features. Incidentally, Xiaomi Mi A2 does not have a 3.5mm audio jack, which means traditional 3.5mm headphones can not be connected to the smartphones directly.

It is backed by a 3,010mAh non-removable battery and comes with a 5V/2A power adapter.

Mi A2 is exclusively launching Quick Charge 4.0 for Indian customers.

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

This is Xiaomi's second phone featuring Android One (Stock Android Experience), which is based on Android Oreo (8.1). Interested buyers can pre-book the device starting today on mi.com and Amazon.
