Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi has scheduled a Global Launch Event on July 24 in Madrid, Spain where it is expected to launch the Mi A2. However, alongside the Mi A2, it looks like Xiaomi will launch one more smartphone – the Mi A2 Lite – both of which have been spotted on a Polish retailer’s website along with their specs, price as well as images.
Xiaomi Mi A2
The Mi A2 will succeed the Mi A1 that was launched last year in September. The Mi A1 is the first Android One smartphone from Xiaomi, and, the Mi A2 being successor to the Mi A1 is also expected to be an Android One smartphone. For those unaware, the Mi A1 is a re-branded Mi 5X, hence, the Mi A2 is also very likely to be a re-branded Mi 6X that was launched in China with MIUI back in late April this year.
The specifications of the Mi A2 that have previously leaked online are no different than that of the Mi 6X, with the only difference being that Mi A2 runs stock Android whereas the Mi 6X runs MIUI which is Xiaomi’s custom Android skin.
The specifications of Mi A2 that have been revealed through a Polish retailer’s website are no different than what we have heard of before, however, they do reveal that the Mi A2 will come in three different configurations – 4 GB RAM + 32 GB storage, 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage, and, 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage. The Polish retailer’s website has also revealed the images of the Mi A2 which shows that it looks no different than the Mi 6X, except that it rocks the Android One moniker at the back with the 3.5 mm headphone jack missing.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite
Alongside the Mi A2, the Polish website has also revealed the Mi A2 Lite. Well, the Mi A2 Lite has come out of nowhere as we haven’t heard anything about this smartphone until now. The Mi A2 Lite, like the Mi A2, will also be an Android One smartphone, and hence, will run stock Android instead of MIUI.
Unlike the Mi A2, the Mi A2 Lite comes with a display notch, however, it does have a dual camera setup at the back. Well, while the Mi A2 is a re-branded Mi 6X, if the specifications outed by the Polish website are to be believed, then the Mi A2 Lite will be a re-branded Redmi 6 Pro. The Redmi 6 Pro was launched by Xiaomi late last month in China. The design of the Mi A2 Lite is also exactly the same as that of the Redmi 6 Pro, with the exception of the Android One moniker on the back of the Mi A2 Lite.
You can check out the specifications and price of both the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite that’s been revealed by the Polish website.
