Xiaomi in the headlines yet again. A Chinese benchmarking website TENAA has recently leaked images of the Xiaomi Mi A2 and now has surfaced online revealing its expected specs and features. Though not official, in all probability the smartphone would likely be launched as Xiaomi Mi 6X in China and while globally, including India, it would be launched as Mi A2.
So, the images confirm specs like a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Also, the successor to the Mi A1 is said to be dubbed as the Mi A2 (Mi 6X) and is expected to make its entry into the Chinese market soon.
Now, since the Mi A1 was the first phone to come with Android One, it can be naturally expected that the next in the series would be no less different. Android One phones come with a bloatware-free Android UI, which many users in India have appreciated.
Further leaks also reveal that the smartphone would also have a f/2.0 20 MP and f/1.8 8 MP dual camera lens, accompanied by an LED flash. On the front, the phone would boast of a 20 MP selfie snapper.
The phone would be 7.3mm thick and 165mm tall as per the leaked spec sheet. Also, as per the TENAA listing, the phone would have a 5.99-inch display and a 2910 mAh battery. The device is of 158.88×75.54×7.3mm dimension and in the listing, a red color model was listed. The smartphone would also have a metal unibody design with curved antennae bands on the top and bottom edges, as seen on the Mi A1.
A little difference is also noticed here where, unlike the A1, the Mi A2 is said to have a vertically stacked camera unit like the Redmi Note 5 Pro. On the front, it has a 5.99-inch FHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Xiaomi has not given any hint that points toward a launch anytime soon, but we expect it to debut in the Chinese market early Q2 2018.
To conclude, the Mi A1 is the first Xiaomi smartphone from the company that has stock Android in place of MIUI, along with a secondary telephoto lens at this price. Many Indian reviewers titled it as the best affordable smartphone camera too. So in lieu of that, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that the Mi A2 turns out to be a worthy upgrade to its predecessor.
