The Android One smartphones are successors to the Mi A1 that launched a year ago to great reviews.

The available options for the A2 Lite are differentiated by the RAM and storage they offer. As an Android One phone, it runs a completely stock version of Android and will get quick updates to new versions of the platform for at least two years. The Mi A2 Lite is not coming to India by the way. A smartphone associated with the brand "Pocophone" was also listed to come in two storage variants - 64GB/128GB internal storage with 6GB RAM. In another teaser, Xiaomi suggested two colour options for the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite - Pink and Blue.

According to Xiaomi, it offers 20% better performance than the Snapdragon 636 processor that's powering the Redmi Note 5 and 79% better performance than the Snapdragon 625 which is running on the previous Mi A1.

The secretary's denial came a day after Sanders, the White House press secretary, indicated that no final decision had been made. He said he still doesn't know what Trump discussed with Putin during the leaders' one-on-one meeting in Helsinki.


If you're in a country where Xiaomi is selling the Mi A2 - the company says it'll be on sale in "40 territories" but couldn't say exactly which at the time of writing - then this phone is well worth taking a glance at.

The display on the Mi A2 Lite is a 5.84-inch panel with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a resolution of 2280 x 1080 px. The Mi A2 is the more desirable of the pair, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor and either 4GB of RAM, with 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, or 6GB of RAM with 128GB of space. You will also find the same 20-megapixel selfie camera with a flash on the A2 and the 6X.

The camera setup on the Mi A2 consists of a total of three sensors. The most noticeable difference is seen in the FHD+ 5.99-inch display, which now sports an 18:9 tall aspect ratio with thin side bezels inline with 2018 trends. The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage version will cost Euro 279. It does have a larger 4,000mAh battery, but you sadly have to deal with Micro USB for charging, which is also slower than on the Mi A2. We can expect Xiaomi to launch it a bit lower when the Mi A2 arrives in India but whatever be the case, it looks like the Mi A2 will be more expensive than the Mi A1. Despite offering a display panel with an nearly 6-inch diagonal, Xiaomi managed to ensure the Mi A2 is a rather compact device, being only 158.7 x 75.4 x 7.3mm in size and weighing just 166g. The phone has a weaker set of cameras, though - on the back, you'll find a 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual-camera system, while the selfie snapper relies on a 5-megapixel sensor. While the Mi A2 Lite will start at €179 (Rs. 14,434.23 approx). France will be the first to get the phone on July 27, followed by Italy on August 8, and Spain on August 10. Up front, the smartphone will have a 20MP AI-backed front camera with a 3,010mAh battery under.
