Around two weeks ago, Xiaomi launched the Mi A2 in India. The company’s second Android One-certified smartphone, the Mi A2 is a well-rounded overall package that offers a lot of goodness at a (fairly) affordable asking price. If you’ve been eyeing Xiaomi Mi A2 ever since it became official, this is your chance, as the smartphone will be up for grabs today.

The phone will be available initially through the flash sale model, and is priced at Rs 16,999. The phone is the second Android One device from Xiaomi, and runs stock Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.

Xiaomi Mi A2: Flash sale details, offers and more

The second flash sale of Xiaomi Mi A2 will begin at 12PM today, and the smartphone will be available for purchase on both Amazon India and Xiaomi India’s online store. We advise getting online a few minutes (preferably on a fast network connection) before the clock hits 12:00, so that you have a better chance of getting yourself an Mi A2.

To make things better, there are several offers available with Xiaomi Mi A2. Successful buyers will receive an instant cashback of Rs 2,200, courtesy of Reliance Jio. The cashback will come in the form of 44 cashback vouchers of Rs 50 each, redeemable through the MyJio app while recharging a Jio account on the Mi A2. Other than that, buyers will receive up to 4.5TB of additional data, provided they recharge with any prepaid plan of Rs 198 (or above) on the Mi A2. Of course, a Jio Prime membership is needed to avail the benefits.

That’s not all. Xiaomi is also offering a free 3-month subscription to Hungama Music with every purchase of the Mi A2. Under the ‘Mi Exchange’ program, buyers can exchange an old phone and get an extra discount on the price of the Mi A2.

Xiaomi Mi A2: Price, specifications, and features

Bearing a price tag of Rs 16,999, the Xiaomi Mi A2 has Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 SoC under-the-hood, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (There’s also a higher-end variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, coming soon). However, there’s no memory expansion slot.

Running stock Android 8.1 Oreo, the Mi A2 is on track to receive OS/security updates (including the latest Android Pie) directly from Google. It sports a 5.99-inch FullHD+ display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Watch: Xiaomi Mi A2 First Look

For photography, the Mi A2 features a dual-camera system at the back. It has a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a secondary 20-megapixel sensor, complete with dual-LED flash. There’s also a 20-megapixel camera up front for selfies and video calls. From Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac to USB Type-C, the Mi A2 has all the modern connectivity options you can think of. Sadly, there’s no 3.5mm audio port. A 3,000mAh battery with fast-charging support backs up the whole package.
