The Xiaomi Mi A2 is now available for pre-order through Amazon India. The second generation Android One smartphone was announced just a few weeks ago and fans in India now have the chance to pre-order one.
The pre-order also comes with a few extras for customers in the country. The Mi A2 will have some exclusive features in India but we’ll get to that in just a second.
The Xiaomi smartphone is an Amazon exclusive, meaning that it can only be pre-ordered through the website. The device is also available for pre-order through the company’s official website in India.
The Mi A2 has launched in India at a price of Rs. 16,999 ($247). The price is a 30 percent increase from the previous release but there are several improvements that justify the big raise for this year’s device.
The smartphone is all about the mid-range specs and here we have all the details. The Mi A2 has a 5.99-inch display. It is actually the same display from recent Xiaomi releases such as the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor, which is a nice upgrade from the Mi A1’s Snapdragon 625 processor. Xiaomi has announced several variants of the phone, including one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The launch in India is only for the variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The good news is that the company has confirmed that it will also be bringing the variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage to India.
The Xiaomi Mi A2 features a dual camera setup of 12MP + 20MP. The front camera is 20MP. There is a 3,010 mAh battery and the phone comes with Android 8.1.
Mi A1 vs. Mi A2
The Mi A1 and Mi A2 have plenty of differences, with the latest release bringing major improvements. The biggest one is the processor upgrade, with the Mi A2 now featuring a Snapdragon 660 processor.
The two phones have a metal body but the Mi A2 is different on the front since there is now more display. The Mi A2 gets closer to the phones we have today with the large screens and the near bezel-less design.
The Mi A2 went up for pre-order on Amazon India on August 9. The pre-orders started through the online retailer at 12PM. The phone is also available through Xiaomi’s official website.
