Xiaomi Mi A2 pops up on online retailer, pricing and release confirmed
As expected from the Android One smartphone, the Mi A2 will be based on the Mi 6X. This means a metal construction will once again be present, with the front panel being adorned by a tall 6-inch display. Furthermore, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 will power the smartphone and it will be coupled with the choice of either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Those who choose the lower RAM count will gain access to 32GB or 64GB depending on their preference, while the latter model will ship with 128GB of internal storage. Nevertheless, it’s worth noting that this won’t be expandable via microSD.
When it comes to the remaining details, stock Android 8.1 Oreo is expected to ship straight out of the box, although a speedy update to Android P is to be expected. Furthermore, keeping the lights on will be a 3,010mAh battery while, on the camera front, a main 12-megapixel rear sensor will be included next to a secondary 20-megapixel sensor, which itself is identical to the selfie camera featured up front.
Currently, Xiaomi is yet to confirm the device officially, but according to the online retailer, sales of the smartphone will commence August 8, suggesting an announcement will take place in the final week of July. In regards to pricing, the 32GB model kicks off the lineup at $290, with the 64GB setting consumers back $330, and the top-of-the-line 128GB model costing $370. Regardless of the variant chose, however, the device can be acquired in Black, Blue, or Gold.
