The Xiaomi Mi A2 is all set to be launched in India today, and will be the Chinese smartphone maker’s second device in India running on the Android One platform. And now, after spotting its listing, we know that the Xiaomi Mi A2 will be exclusive to Amazon India on launch.
According to the listing on Amazon India, the Xiaomi Mi A2 is set to be launched at 4:00PM today, and it will also be live streamed online. Interestingly, the alleged pricing of the device too has leaked on Amazon India hours before the official India launch. As per the listing, prices of the Mi A2 will start from Rs 17,499. We would however strongly advice you to take it with the proverbial pinch of salt.
While the phone is listed as an Amazon India exclusive, it will also likely be made available through mi.com/in – Xiaomi’s own e-store for its products – and certain offline locations such as Xiaomi’s Mi Home stores. However, the large part of sales will go through Amazon India.
