Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite - Global Launch!


The Xiaomi Mi A1 saw immense success thanks to its pricing and the fact that it packed in the right hardware at the right price with the addition of stock Android (sans MIUI) which also meant quicker and timely software updates as compared to other smartphones running MIUI.

Hopefully Xiaomi takes the same path and launches two smartphones with Android One inside instead of its own MIUI software. Yes, I did mention two smartphones. Unlike the Mi A1, there are earlier rumours and recent tweets from the official Mi handle, point to two smartphones, the standard Mi A2 and the Mi A2 Lite. The Lite model is expected to be a more affordable variant of the Mi A2 with slightly watered-down specifications. And now its time to talk about the full specification and global launch.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is expected to come with a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display, with a notch at the top and an aspect ratio of 19:9. It will most likely be packing in a Snapdragon 625 SoC, running alongside a 4,000mAh battery. The smartphone will be available in two variants that feature 32GB storage with 3GB RAM, and 64GB storage with 4GB RAM. For taking pictures, the phone is touted to come with a dual-rear camera setup consisting of a 12-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor. Up front, there is said to be a 5-megapixel shooter for taking selfies. The smartphone will run on stock Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-box.

The Mi A2 is priced at 249 euros (roughly Rs 20,000) for the base model with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage variant is priced at 279 euros (roughly Rs 22,500). The most expensive device cost 349 euros (roughly Rs 28,100) with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

The MiA2 Lite is priced at 179 euros (roughly Rs 14,500)for the 3GB RAM 32GB storage and 229 euros (roughly Rs 18,500)with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Both devices will go on sale from August 10 in Spain. In France, the device will go on sale from July 27. In Italy, the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite will go on sale in August 8. Xiaomi also announced that the devices will soon be available in 40 countries very soon. India was among the list of countries that will receive the new Android One phones from Xiaomi.
