Xiaomi is hosting an event in Madrid, Spain on July 24, and the Chinese smartphone maker has already started sending invites for the same. At the event, Xiaomi is widely expected to launch the Mi A2 smartphone, which will be the global rebranded version of the Mi 6X that was recently launched in China.
Now, Xiaomi has posted a teaser image on its Twitter handle which reveals some basic information about the phone. The image contains last year’s Mi A1, Android One branding on top, and the phrase “The Next Gen is Coming.” The tweet caption reads “Are you a big fan of #MiA1? You will love this…#Xiaomi #AndroidOne #2isbetterthan1”
