According to a report by Gadgets360, Xiaomi will not launch the 4 GB RAM + 32 GB storage variant of the Mi A2 in India, which means the 64 GB storage variant will serve as the base model in the country. Moreover, Gadgets360 also reports that the Mi A2 will be available in four colors in India instead of the original three – Black, Blue, Gold – revealed during the unveiling. The fourth one will be the Rose Gold color.

That said, it’s currently unclear whether Xiaomi will only launch the 64 GB storage variant in India, or, it will also bring the 128 GB variant to the country that comes with 6 GB RAM.
