In just a few days from now, Xiaomi will be holding a global launch event in Madrid, Spain to unveil two new Android One smartphones – Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. Both smartphones were recently found listed on a Polish retailer website. The duo has now been listed by a few Romanian online stores, complete with pricing as well as availability info.

According to the retailer listing, both the 32GB and 64GB variants of the Mi A2 will be available in a week’s time.

Mi A2: Specifications, Features
The Xiaomi Mi A2 will arrive with a 5.99-inch Full-screen IPS display with Full HD+ 1080 x 2160 resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio, similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Under the hood, however, the Mi A2 will be powered by a beefier Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with an Adreno 512 GPU. In the memory department, Mi A2 is expected to be offered in three configurations – 4GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. Since the Mi 6X does not have a microSD card slot, we don’t expect the Mi A2 to support memory expansion either.
At the rear will be a 12MP + 20MP dual-camera setup with phase-detection autofocus, AI Scene Detection, and an AI-powered Portrait Mode. The smartphone will also be capable of shooting 4K Ultra HD videos. For selfies, the Mi A2 will have a 20MP snapper on the front. Keeping the lights on will be a 3010mAh battery. The Android One smartphone will also feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and come with the Face Unlock feature. In terms of software, the Mi A2 is expected to run stock Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box.
Mi A2 Lite: Specifications, Features
The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite will be the global variant of the Redmi 6 Pro, which was unveiled in China recently. It comes with a 5.84-inch sized notched IPS display with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Powering the Mi A2 Lite will be an octa-core 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 clocked at 2.0 GHz with an Adreno 506 GPU. It is expected to be available in two memory configurations – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. For further expansion, the Mi A2 Lite will include a dedicated microSD card slot. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite will also come with a 12MP + 5MP AI dual-camera setup on the back, 5MP selfie camera, an IR blaster, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 4000mAh capacity battery.
