Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi launched two new Android One smartphones at its event in Spain last month – the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi A2 in India tomorrow at an event held in New Delhi, and, just ahead of the launch, the Mi A2’s India price has leaked online.
A Twitter user named Aman Sawhney spotted the Mi A2 listed in the “Today’s Deals” section of Amazon India’s app. The listing reveals that the Mi A2 is priced at ₹17,499. However, do keep in mind that this price is for the 64 GB storage variant as Xiaomi is reportedly not launching the 32 GB variant in India.
There are a total of three variants of the Mi A2 – 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. Xiaomi is said to skip the 32 GB variant in India, and, there’s no word on whether or not it will bring the 128 GB variant to the country. But, if it does, and if this price of 64 GB variant turns out to be true, then you can expect the 128 GB variant to be priced between ₹19,500 and ₹20,500, especially because it also comes with 6 GB RAM instead of 4 GB.
That being said, the Mi A2 will come with Quick Charge 4.0 support exclusively for Indian market, with others having to make do with Quick Charge 3.0. But, irrespective of where you buy the Mi A2 from, you will have to buy the Quick Charge 3.0/4.0 adapter separately if you want to leverage these fast charging speeds, because Xiaomi will bundle along a 10W (5V/2A) adapter.
