Xiaomi has finally launched the global version of Xiaomi Mi 6X as well as Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro. They are being called Xiaomi Mi A2 and Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. Xiaomi Mi 6X and Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro were specifically launched inside of china and they had Xiaomi’s proprietary MIUI. But Xiaomi Mi A2 as well as Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite are part of Google’s Android One project. Android One is basically a platform where software of the phone is provided by Google itself and it promises a snappier and stable android experience as well as fast updates. Xiaomi Mi A2 is the successor to last year’s Xiaomi Mi A1 and it comes with significant updates in every single department. While Xiaomi Mi A2 lite is the new entry and it brings pure android experience to particularly budget range of smartphones.
First of all design is the same we have come to see in Xiaomi devices at this price range. Xiaomi Mi A2 is made of single block of aluminum that has rounded curves to give it more smooth feel in the hand. Now coming towards the front we have a 5.99 inches LCD display with Full HD Plus resolution but it just falls short of expectations in brightness. It houses an all new Snapdragon 660 processor clocked at 2.2GHz which is a nice upgrade from Snapdragon 625 in previous generation. Xiaomi Mi A2 comes in three configurations. A 4GB RAM+32GB Storage option,a 4GB RAM+64GB storage option and a 6GB RAM +128GB Storage option but there is no SD card expansion which is a negative point.
The biggest upgrade we see in Xiaomi Mi A2 is the camera. At the rear we have an all new 12+20MP combination both with f/1.75 aperture. Aperture this large is very good not only for daylight shots but also for better low light photography. At the front we get a whooping 20MP sensor as compared to 5MP in Xiaomi Mi A1 along with some AI trickery for better selfies. Xiaomi Mi A2 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 but no headphone jack unfortunately. Battery is rather average with 3000mAH capacity but with Snapdragon 660 efficiency you can cut the day.Plus point is that Xiaomi Mi A2 does support quick charge 3.0. All of these specifications are good but there are some catches including the display, battery and exclusion of headphone jack. We can expect Xiaomi Mi A2’s different variants to fall between Rs.35,000 and 45,000.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is just the Android One version of Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro. It has all the specifications that we are used seeing in Xiaomi smartphones for couple of years now. Starting with display it has a 5.84 inches notched LCD display with Full HD Plus resolution. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite comes with Snapdragon 625 processor along with 4GB and 3GB RAM. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite does come with a dedicated SD card slot.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite has a Dual 12+5MP combination at the back where 5MP sensor is only there for depth sensing. At front we have a 5MP camera but it kinda wish it was at least 8MP. Xiaomi Mi A2 lite comes with same large 4000mAH battery that we see on Chinese version of the smartphone. Xiaomi Mi A2 lite is just a regular Xiaomi smartphone and there is no new feature to talk about specifically other than the notch at the top of display. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite does come with lower price tag which is good for consumers.We can expect it to come within the price range of Rs 25,000 and Rs 30,000.
