We are just a couple of days from the official launch of the Xiaomi Mi A2 in Spain. But there doesn’t seem to be an end to all the leaks around the smartphone. Ahead of the launch, another couple of online retailers have listed the Xiaomi smartphone along with its price, and specifications.
The Xiaomi Mi A2 has been spotted on e-retailers’ websites in Poland and Romania before. Now, it has been listed by Chinese and British e-retailers, and both are also accepting pre-orders for the yet-to-be-launched device, GSMArena reports. Interestingly, both these websites only list the Mi A2, and not the much-rumored Mi A2 Lite.
UK’s eGlobal Central and China’s Banggood store both have listed the 64GB+4GB RAM variant of the Xiaomi Mi A2. The UK website mentions the price as £209.99 (approximately Rs 19,000), which is claims is after a 13 percent discount. The Chinese website, on the other hand, mentions the price as Rs 16,105, which is down from Rs 18,907.05.
The pricing on the Chinese website does seem more believable, and is close to what the Xiaomi Mi A1 was launched at last year. Like last year, the Xiaomi Mi 6X will be rebranded as the Xiaomi Mi A2 for the global markets. The major differentiator between the two models will be the stock operating system. This year however, rumors hint at the launch of a second model, dubbed Mi A2 Lite.
Xiaomi Mi A2 expected specifications, features
The Xiaomi Mi A2 is expected to flaunt a 6-inch FHD+ 18:9 display, and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. There are likely to be two variants to choose from – 64GB+4GB RAM, and 128GB+6GB RAM.
The smartphone will also come with dual-camera setup at the back with a combination of 12-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensors. For selfies, there will be a 20-megapixel sensor at the front. On the software front, the device is expected to run stock Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite, on the other hand, is expected to feature a smaller display with 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch at the top. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, and there will be two variants to choose from – 32GB+3GB RAM, and 64GB+4GB RAM. It will be backed by a 4,000mAh battery, and run stock Android 8.1 Oreo.
Based on a recent leak, the Mi A2 Lite 32GB variant is expected to be priced at €200 (approximately Rs 16,100), while the 64GB variant is expected to be priced at €245 (approximately Rs 19,700).
