Xiaomi is expected to rebrand the Mi 6X as the Mi A2 when it launches in India, following the trend of the Mi 5X and the Mi A1 - which was Xiaomi's first Android One smartphone. Now new details have emerged claiming that the Mi A2 Lite is also in the works. The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite was spotted on a Singapore certification site, and according to the listing, it is headed for users in Singapore for now.
