Xiaomi Mi A2 Price and release date in India with specs features and more

Xiaomi launched the Mi A1 in India in September 2017 and it has been a bestseller device with excellent sales. Initially only black color was available and after some time, Redmi India launched other colors like blue, gold, rose gold. Mi A1 was an excellent value for money device with decent internal hardware, stock android, and dual cameras. We liked the dual camera implementation with a telephoto lens which is only seen on expensive devices. Dual cameras with the telephoto lens are great as they provide 2X zoom without any loss in image quality.

This year Xiaomi will launch the successor, Mi A2 in India. In this article, we take a look at price, specifications, features, release date and rumors.

Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India at a price of 9999 and 13999. See Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro.

So what's going to change?

MI 6X has been launched in China on 25th April 2018 and it will be launched as MI A2 in India. So here is everything you will get to see in Mi A2.

First big change is going to be on the display side, Mi A1 came with a 5.5 inch Full HD display. The display is sharp with good colour reproduction so there were no issues with the display. But now the regular 16:9 aspect ratio displays with thick bezels look outdated and boring. Mi A2 will come with a 6-inch bezel-less display of 18:9 aspect ratio with minimum bezels. Redmi has already launched the Redmi Note 5 with a 6-inch bezel-less display and dual camera so Mi A2 is following the trend. Click here to read review, ratings, pros cons of Redmi 5 Pro.

The second change is in the design. Mi A1 had a horizontal camera and was inspired by the design on iPhone 7 Plus. Mi A2 features a dual camera in the vertical position and looks similar to Redmi Note 5 Pro.

On the processor side, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 will power the Mi A2 which is a good jump from the Snapdragon 625 seen on the Mi A1. Snapdragon 660 scores around 115000 on the Antutu Benchmark while Snapdragon 625 scores only half around 62000. So you can expect super smooth performance on Mi A2. You can read here the comparison between Snapdragon 625 vs 660.

Regarding the camera, it has a dual rear camera 20+12MP f/1.75 that very well supports the bokeh shots. Redmi have specifically focussed on the low light images on this phone which sees a good improvement. For the front camera, it has a 20 MP camera with LED flash and uses an IMX376 sensor that clicks beautiful selfies. Also, Xiaomi has added an Artifical Intelligence (AI) layer to the camera that is used to recognize various objects, food etc. 

Mi A2 has a battery rated at 3010 mAh and comes with Quick Charge 3.0 with USB Type C port. And like before, Mi A2 is expected to be an Android One device so you will see latest stock Android on the device. Face Unlock and fingerprint unlocking is supported on this Mi A2.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Expected Specifications:

Here's the list of top expected features and specs of Redmi Mi A2

We hope Xiaomi ditches the hybrid sim slot and provides a dedicated MicroSD slot so that users can utilize all features without any compromises.

Redmi Mi A2 Price in India

Redmi Mi A2 is expected to be priced similar to Mi A1.

4 GB - 64 GB  will be priced in India at Rs 14999

6 GB - 64 GB  will be priced in India at Rs 16999

6 GB - 128 GB  will be priced in India at Rs 18999

So, you would have to pay Rs. 14999 for the 64GB variant. We would be happy to see a 128GB Mi A2 Pro variant priced at around 17000-18000. 

If you are planning to phone to buy a phone in this range then Honor 9i is a great option because of it's large bezel-less display and 4 cameras: dual front and dual back. Click here to see Honor 9i.

Redmi Mi A2 India Release Date

Xiaomi will launch the Mi A2 in India in June 2018.

Redmi Mi A2 Rumors

Xiaomi is expected to launch its own chipset Xiaomi Surge S2 at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona in February, the chipset will reportedly power the upcoming Mi 6X phone which will launch as the Xiaomi Mi A2 in global markets including India.

The Surge S2 is expected to be a mid-range SoC manufactured on TSMC’s 16nm fabrication process. Surge S2 will have an Octa-core setup with four high-performance ARM Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and four efficiency cores of ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

The chipset will have a Mali G71MP8 GPU. The Soc will also support LPDDR4 memory and the latest UFS 2.1 storage standard. The performance of the Surge S2 SoC might be at par with Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 960, which was the flagship chipset of the company in 2016.

The Surge S2 might power the Xiaomi Mi 6X which is the successor to the Mi 5X which was ultimately launched as the Mi A1 in India under the Android One program. This is why we are expecting that the Surge S2 might power the Mi A2. Source: Digit

Fresh leaks have confirmed our expectations that Mi 6X, which will be called Mi A2 in India, will have a 6-inch Full view display on the front and a dual camera setup on the back. 

Xiaomi Redmi Mi A2 Leaked image black color device

This time Xiaomi is going with a vertical dual camera setup which looks very similar to what we saw on Apple iPhone X. Here's the back of the Mi A2 in gold color

Update: 26th March 2018

A new image of Mi 6X/Mi A2 has leaked. As per a listing TENAA, reported by SlashLeaks, images, and specifications of a smartphone with model number M1804D2SE were showcased. Most of what we were expecting is correct. The phone will come with a 5.99 inch Full View display and a dual camera and fingerprint sensor on the back. The battery will be just 2910 mAh which is disappointing. The phone will be just 7.3 mm thick so Xiaomi has decreased the battery capacity to keep the phone slim. 

Now that we already have a Redmi Note 5 Pro(See the detailed review of 5 Pro) in Indian market with a 6-inch display and dual camera at 13999, it will be interesting to see at what price Xiaomi launches the Mi A1. We are not expecting anything above Rs. 15000. 

Update 16h April:

Mi A2/Mi 6X launch has been confirmed for 25th April 2018. This is the China launch date. India launch might happen in May or June 2018. The chipset is expected to be Snapdragon 660 so earlier leak about chipset being SD 626 proved to be wrong. Rest all of the specs are as per expectation. The Mi A2 will be available in blue color as well. You can see the back of Mi A2 in the picture below:
