  • Xiaomi Mi A2 Global Launch - All Features, Price, India Launch, Availability & More!

The Mi A2 series is the successor to last year's Mi A1, which was Xiaomi's first Android One smartphone. Both the smartphones will be supported by Google running the latest Android version out of the box.

The Mi A2 is similar to the Mi A1 in name - but that's about it.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 is priced at 249 euros (~Rs 20,000) for the base 4GB RAM/32GB storage variant, 279 euros (~Rs 22,500) for 4GB/64GB, and 349 euros (~Rs 28,000) for 6GB/128GB. The Mi A2 Lite, meanwhile, may cost RON 943 (roughly Rs. 16,200) for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage and RON 1,143 (roughly Rs. 19,700) for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant. With the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite, Xiaomi is continuing its patronage for Google's Android One program while still offering great hardware.

Ahead of the teaser for today's announcement, rumors had suggested that the Mi A2 would be based on the Xiaomi Mi 6X that came out in April.

You may be in one of those countries and you may like the look of its metal, gold coloured body, you may like the big 5.99-inch display and you may appreciate how sharp text looks with the full HD plus resolution. The front camera of the Xiaomi Mi A2 is a 20-megapixel affair reliant on another Sony-made IMX376 sensor and an f/2.2 lens, boasting support for AI-enhanced selfies, HDR, and semantic segmentation which makes AI image analysis faster.

On the rear, the Mi A2 has two camera sensors - a primary 12-megapixel f/1.75 lens and another 20-megapixel f/1.75 snapper for depth-sensing.


Powering the device is a familiar Snapdragon 625 processor which is the same unit that's powering last year's Mi A1.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 comes with a 5.99-inch Full HD+ screen which has an aspect ratio of 18:9. Powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM option. And now, according to an e-commerce website listing the company might soon launch a "pro" version of the Mi MAX 3 called as the Xiaomi Mi MAX 3 Pro. Even though the Mi A2 Lite is smaller than the Mi A2, it actually comes with a larger 4,000mAh battery too.

Xiaomi is live streaming the Mi A2 launch, so you should be able to catch all the updates without missing anything.

A new phone brand - Pocophone - was recently trademarked by Xiaomi, which has led to a speculation that Xiaomi may launch "Beryllium" under the label "Pocophone".

Both handsets will be available in Europe (Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey and Ukraine), and will also be sold in Hong Kong, India, Colombia, Mexico, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and others. At the front end, the device receives a 20MP camera with HDR options and soft selfie light, making it ideal for selfies and video calling.
