Xiaomi Mi A2 will run Android One with a 5.99-inch full HD+ display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC

Xiaomi’s much anticipated Android One handset, the Mi A2, is expected to be launched soon. Xiaomi India recently hinted in a teaser that a new Android One smartphone is going to be unveiled soon. The teaser says “Are you a big fan of #MiA1? You will love this...#Xiaomi #AndroidOne #2isbetterthan1." Last week Xiaomi revealed it is hosting a global event in Madrid, Spain on July 24. Going by Xiaomi’s trend of launching the Mi A1 just a few months after launching the Mi 5X last year, we can expect the same to happen this year, as the Mi 6X was launched in April.

The Mi A2, a rebranded version of the Mi 6X, has been leaked several times on the internet and was even listed on a Swiss portal called Digitec. The smartphone is expected to run on Android One with the same 5.99-inch full HD+ display as seen on the Mi 6X. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and three storage variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. In the camera department, it is rumoured to have a vertically stacked dual rear camera setup with a 12MP primary sensor and a 20MP selfie camera. It will also come with a 3010mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.

The outgoing Mi A1 features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080. It runs Android One and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. It has a dual-camera setup, with 12MP primary and secondary sensors and a 5MP selfie camera.

Xiaomi is also celebrating its four years in India with a ‘Mi 4 u’ sale, which started on July 10. The sale will go on till July 12 and will have different gadgets going up on offer every day.
