Xiaomi Mi A2 launched: Unboxing, specifications, features

Here's a closer look at Xiaomi's latest Android One smartphone.

Much like its name implies, the Mi A2 Lite is essentially a slightly downgraded version of the Mi A2 in nearly every department, with Xiaomi apparently pushing it as its attempt to win the title of this year's best smartphone under $200. Just like the Mi A1, the Mi A2 comes with a lean install with the only OEM apps being Mi Remote and Mi File Manager. You can catch up with the live streaming of the Xiaomi launch event below.

The Mi A1's sales performance previous year offers some proof that there are enough users out there looking for a stock experience. These two phones - Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite are successors to last year's Mi A1 which was the Android One version of another Xiaomi phone, Mi 5X, a China exclusive. The Xiaomi Mi A2 has a front glass design and an aluminum body.

On the other hand, the 32-inch Mi TV 4A has an HD (1366x768 pixels) panel and the 43-inch Mi TV 4A has a full-HD (1920x1080 pixels) display. Mi A2 Lite will run Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with a rear dual camera setup.

Not only does the camera interface feel very responsive, the Mi A2 can take sharp, flattering images with good dynamic range too. The primary camera has a 12 MP sensor with a f/1.75 aperture and another 20 MP sensor with a f/1.75 aperture. The phone has 2MP+20MP dual cameras on the back and 20MP selfie camera on the front. It does have a larger 4,000mAh battery, but you sadly have to deal with Micro USB for charging, which is also slower than on the Mi A2.

Alongside the A2 is the A2 Lite. The Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite feature comprehensive upgrades from the Mi A1, and Xiaomi is set to make both devices available in over 40 markets around the world. Entry-level, because, the price of the Mi A2 could be under the Rs. 15,000 price bracket. Both the devices are expected to launch in India soon. The Mi A2 Lite is not coming to India by the way. The Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite will be available in India via its regular channels, online via Flipkart and Mi.com, and offline via Mi Preferred stores. It also packs a 1080p LCD coupled with Snapdragon 625 chipset. The prices may go up to Rs 16,500 without discount.

The pricing reflects that as well, with the decked-out version of the Mi A2 running up to $410. The Mi A2 will start selling on 27 July in Spain and it will gradually be launched in the mentioned markets throughout August. Well, even though the Mi A2 Lite comes with a fingerprint scanner, it also comes with Face Unlock that lets you unlock the smartphone using your face. This brings us to the specifications of the Mi A2.

The pricing details for both the smartphones is deep under the wraps.
