Xiaomi Mi A2 launched in India: Price, specifications, features and more

Xiaomi Mi A2: What's new? It says the smartphone has emerged as the most sought after device in the sub-Rs 20,000 price segment since its launch in March. Moreover, the smartphone will be an Amazon exclusive in the country.

Today, Xiaomi has officially launched Xiaomi Mi A2 in India, priced at Rs. 16,999. The smartphone comes with a price tag of Rs 16,999 for the 4GB RAM variant, while the price of 6GB RAM variant has not been disclosed. However, Xiaomi has only launched the 4GB/64GB variant in India.

The rally is expected to mark the organization's one-year anniversary since their deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

You can pre-order the phone starting tomorrow from 12 p.m. onwards on Amazon.in and Mi.com. Good news is Mi device will soon be updated to Android Pie. The Xiaomi Mi A2 features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. However, the device looks quite different from the Mi A1 since it now has a near bezel-less design. It will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM. It also has a 3D face scanning face ID feature (with infrared emitters, similar to the iPhone X) and VOOC fast charge support. Xiaomi insists the additional 20MP sensor at the back aids in lowlight imaging. In the camera department, it has a 12MP + 8MP dual camera setup with OIS on the rear and a 8MP front camera. They are aided by phase-detection autofocus, and a dual-tone dual-LED flash. Incidentally, even the Mi A1 offered the exact same battery capacity.

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. The Mi A2 doesn't have a microSD card slot. As the name suggests, it's the successor to Xiaomi's highly praised stock Android running device. The camera offers AI-powered Portrait Mode and 4K video capture at 30 fps. It will also include a 20MP front-facing camera. The camera appears to lack OIS. 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.
