Xiaomi Mi A2 launched in India for Rs 16,999

Xiaomi Mi A2 launched in India for Rs 16,999

Chinese handset maker Xiaomi on Wednesday expanded its smartphone line-up with the launch of Mi A2 smartphone, its latest Android One-powered device, in the country.

Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core chipset with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. Xiaomi Mi A2 is internationally available in 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage variants.

Xiaomi's previous premium device in India was the Mi Mix 2, launched a year ago. It will also include a 20MP front-facing camera.

Mi A2 is the second in the lineage of Mi A1, which was launched past year, and with this latest smartphone, the brand is looking forward to its cameras in its social media teasers.

Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain introduced the company's new phone at an event.

According to an Amazon India pre-order listing, the Mi A2's 4GB+64GB variant will retail for Rs 17,499 in India, but most likely, the device could be priced at Rs 16,999 or Rs 17,999. Other than offering a fluid Android experience, Xiaomi Mi A2 also boasts top-end specifications and features for its budget price. Xiaomi Mi A2 will be available in three colour options- Black, Gold and Blue.

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

The Xiaomi Mi A2's pricing remains shrouded in mystery as of now. The front has a 6.4-inch curved Amoled display (without a notch) giving it a screento-body ratio of 93%. Connectivity options on the smartphone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, Infrared, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Micro-USB port. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and a proximity sensor.

For photos, you're getting a dual-camera setup at the back that features a 12MP main sensor with an f/1.9 aperture lens and a 5MP secondary sensor for depth effects (bokeh). The phone comes in two variants: NEX A and NEX S - we expect Vivo to only launch the topend NEX S in India because they're gunning for the premium market. But it does come with Electronic Image Stabilization to ensure good video quality. Being a part of the Android One program, it comes with bone stock Android instead of MiUI, which you may love or hate.
