Xiaomi’s Mi A2 is a well-rounded smartphone, offering everything from stock Android to a notch-less display at a fairly-competitive price of Rs 16,999. It’s no slouch in the imaging department either, having the ability to shoot both 4K (2160p) and FullHD (1080p) videos. And with the latest update, the device’s video shooting abilities are getting even better.

The Mi A2 is receiving an update that gives the Android One-certified smartphone the ability to record super-smooth FullHD (1080p) videos at 60fps. Since the camera itself supports gyroscope-based EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization), the resulting videos should (theoretically) come out to be even better. It’s worth mentioning that the Mi A2 can already shoot FullHD (1080p) videos at 30fps.

Xiaomi launched the Mi A2 in India last week. The Mi A2 is Xiaomi’s second Android One-certified smartphone after last year’s Mi A1. Priced at Rs 16,999, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 SoC, 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, Xiaomi Mi A2 is entitled to receive OS/security updates (including the latest Android Pie). The smartphone has a 5.99-inch FullHD+ display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels, and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

For photography, the Mi A2 features a dual-camera system at the back. It’s comprised of a 12-megapixel sensor, and a 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 connectivity options you can think of. Sadly, there’s no 3.5mm audio port. The smartphone’s backed by a 3,000mAh battery with fast-charging support.
