[Exclusive] Mi A2 Colour, Storage Variants Leaked ahead of July 25 Launch in Spain


Last year, Xiaomi unveiled the Mi 5X in China and the same smartphone was introduced as Mi A1 (Review) in the Indian market. The Mi A1 was the first-ever smartphone from Xiaomi to run the stock Android user interface. A few months ago, the Chinese smartphone maker announced the successor to the Mi 5X, the Mi 6X, in China. Now, Xiaomi is planning to launch the Mi 6X in the form of the Mi A2 globally, and it includes Indian and Spanish markets.

Now, we have received information from our sources regarding the Mi A2’s colour and storage options that will be debuted later this month in Spain.
