  • Xiaomi Mi A2 will be an Android One device
  • It should sport identical specs as the Mi 6X
  • Xiaomi has confirmed that a global event is happening soon

Xiaomi has announced that a global event is in the offing real soon. The company last year held a global event to launch the Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One smartphone, a rebranded version of the Xiaomi Mi 5X that it had launched a little earlier in China. The Android One device ran on stock Android and did away with the heavy customisations that MIUI brings. This year, the company launched the Xiaomi Mi 6X in China earlier in April, and following tradition, this upcoming global event could be for the Xiaomi Mi A2 Android One smartphone.

Xiaomi India has teased an upcoming global event through its Twitter account, with no specifics on date, venue, or time. The company seems to be still debating on where to host the global event, and has asked its Mi Fans for suggestions. To recall, last year's global event was held in India, and the tweet suggests that this time around it could be somewhere different. We expect Xiaomi to reveal more as time progresses.

Xiaomi Mi A2 smartphone has been leaked on several occasions, and recently it was even listed on a Swiss website. As mentioned, the smartphone is expected to sport similar design and specs as the Mi 6X. In the listing, the Mi A2 32GB storage variant has been priced at CHF 289 (roughly Rs. 19,800), the 64GB model bears a price tag of CHF 329 (about Rs. 22,500), and the 128GB internal storage variant comes in at CHF 369 (roughly Rs. 25,200).


Xiaomi Mi A2 expected specifications

The Xiaomi Mi A2 is tipped to run Android One, and sport the same 5.99-inch full-HD+ (1080x2160 pixels) display as the one seen on the Mi 6X. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM. As mentioned, it has three inbuilt storage options - 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB.

In terms of optics, the Mi A2 bears a vertically stacked dual rear camera setup, with a 12-megapixel primary sensor. On the front, the smartphone is expected to get a 20-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling. There is a 3010mAh battery under the hood, with Quick Charge 3.0. Connectivity options on the listing include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, and USB Type-C.
