You have been reading a lot about Xiaomi’s soon-to-be-launched Mi A2 for the past few months. This new Android One smartphone is scheduled to be officially announced by Xiaomi at a global launch event later this month. At this launch, Xiaomi is also slated to launch an affordable sibling to the Mi A2 as well in the form of the Mi A2 Lite. In case you are unaware, the Mi A2 is currently sold as the Mi 6X in the Chinese market. The Mi A2, however, is based on the Android One platform in contrast to the Mi 6X that runs MIUI. That brings us to the crux of this news article. Almost all the images you have been seeing thus far of the Mi A2 were, in fact, of the Mi 6X. That was until an image of the Mi A2 was listed recently on a Polish website, as reported earlier.
Today, however, we have the official renders of the Mi A2 thanks to our source Ishan Agarwal. As seen in the images below, we can clearly see the Android One home screen as opposed to the MIUI home screen/wallpaper on other images.

As evident from the images above, we have three confirmed colour variants of the Mi A2 – these being Gold, Black, and Red. There is a good chance that the phone would also be released in two more colour versions when the phone is finally released in India in the next few weeks.
As far as the spec-sheet of the Mi A2 is concerned, this phone will get a 5.99-inch Full-screen IPS LCD panel in the now ubiquitous 18:9 aspect ratio. Typical of other smartphones in this price range, the display resolution will be 1080 x 2160 pixels. Powering the phone would be the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset that houses the Adreno 512 GPU. From what we saw on the Polish website listing, the Xiaomi Mi A2 will come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space. There could be other variants with higher RAM and storage capacity. Pertinent to note was the fact that there was no mentioned of a microSD card slot on the Polish website. Chances are, the Mi A2 will not support memory expansion. Note that this is mere speculation at this point. You can read more about the Mi A2 in our detailed article on the device here.
Now that the official renders of the Xiaomi Mi A2 are out, what do you think about the device?
