Xiaomi Mi A2 expected to go official on July 24 at a Global Launch Event in Spain
Late last month, Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi launched the Redmi 6 Pro smartphone along with the Mi Pad 4 tablet. And now, Xiaomi is all set to launch a new device at a Global Launch Event in Spain which is scheduled on July 24. While Xiaomi hasn’t revealed what it’s going to launch, rumors and speculations doing rounds on the Internet suggest that Xiaomi is likely to launch the Mi A2 at the July 24 event.
The Mi A2 will be successor to the Mi A1 that was launched last year in September. The Mi A1 is the first Android One smartphone from Xiaomi. And, being a successor to the Mi A1, the Mi A2 will also be an Android One smartphone – meaning it will run stock Android instead of Xiaomi’s MIUI custom Android skin.
For those unaware, the Mi A1 is actually a re-branded Mi 5X that was launched in China with MIUI. Hence, going by that logic, we can very well expect the Mi A2 to be a re-branded Mi 6X that was launched in China back in late April this year.
Coming back to the July 24 event, it will be held in Madrid which is the capital of Spain. The event is open to Mi Fans who can register here if they want to attend the event. However, travel and accommodation expenses will have to be covered by Mi Fans themselves. Xiaomi won’t do that.
