“The Mi A2 to be an Android One phone that will run on Android Oreo out of the box”
Xiaomi’s forthcoming smartphone, the Mi A2, is making its global debut on July 24th in Spain alongside the Mi A2 Lite. However, ahead of that, the smartphone has featured on quite a few online retail stores, revealing its pricing details. It first appeared on e-retailers’ sites in Poland, followed by Romania, and now in the UK and China.
As per the listing, the UK eGlobal Central is selling the Mi A2 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage in the country at £209.99 (~ Rs 14,421). The price is reportedly a discount from the £241.99 (~ Rs 16,600) original MRP. However, on the Chinese e-retailer site, the same variant of the phone costs $229.99 (~ Rs 15,000). The Mi A2 listing is up on both the sites, and they’re also accepting pre-orders.
Talking about the Mi A2 and its sibling, the Mi A2 Lite, they’re both going to be the stock-Android phones from Xiaomi. The Mi A2 will sport a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and rock Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC under the hood.

Other expected features of the phone include 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and 3,010mAh battery.

It is expected to boast a 5.84-inch 19:9 Full HD+ display, Snapdragon 625 SoC, dual 12MP+5MP rear camera sensors, 5MP selfie shooter, and a 4,000mAh battery.
