Xiaomi Mi A2 launches today in India

Xiaomi Mi A2, the second generation of the highest selling Android One smartphone, launched yesterday.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi on Wednesday expanded its Android One line-up in India by bringing its Mi A2 to the country.

Xiaomi Mi A2 features the same 5.99-inch IPS LCD screen that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro have. The smartphone runs latest Android 8.1 Oreo and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

The device will be available to pre-order starting tomorrow and sales start from August 16th. In contrast with Flipkart, Mi.com is offering the Redmi 5A with a few offers - 15 percent SuperCash cashback from MobiKwik, up to Rs. 2,000; 10 percent cashback up to Rs. 150 from Paytm; Rs. 700 discount on domestic flight tickets and Rs. 2,200 discount on global flights from Ixigo; a Rs. 2,200 cashback from Jio on Rs. 198 and Rs. 299 recharges; and a free 3-month subscription to Hungama Music. The chipset is paired to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device also has a slew of camera-centric features and modes to give a better experience.

The Xiaomi smartphone comes with a dual-camera module at its rear comprising a 20MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 12MP secondary sensor with the same aperture. Xiaomi said that the device will be available on Mi.com, Amazon.in and Mi Home offline stores. Let's see how the smartphone compares against competition in terms of specification. The rear camera comes with support for 4K video recording, HDR support and dual-tone LED flash.

Xiaomi Mi A2 is powered by a 3000mAh battery with support for fast charging technology.

Connectivity options include dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and USB Type-C port. Internationally, Mi A2 was launched in three colours - gold, blue and black and hopefully Xiaomi will be launching the same colors in India as well.
