After months of anticipation, Xiaomi has officially unveiled its latest Android One Mi2 and Mi A2 Lite devices, which they unveiled at noon in Madrid, Spain. As expected, the former is essentially an international version of the Mi 6X launched at the end of April, while the latter is a slightly cheaper version of the main model, both of which are expected to deliver extremely high value for money and retail as the ultimate Android mid-ranger of 2018.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Specifications
Xiaomi Mi A2 has a 5.99-inch FHD + (2,160 x 1,080) display with a 18: 9 (2: 1 Aspect Ratio Covered by Curved 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660, which runs at up to 2.2GHz and provides between 4GB and 6GB of RAM and between 32GB and 1
Xiaomi Mi A2 Design
The Mi A2 has a metal unibody design and an edge-to-edge display with small but observable upper and lower apertures. Unlike many other smartphones released last year (including the Mi A2 Lite), Xiaomi's new Android Mid-Ranger has no display notch and thus a relatively conventional-looking front panel, although its back panel is somewhat reminiscent of Apple's iPhone X, mainly due to the vertical arrangement of the two cameras, which are separated by a dual LED flash unit. Although Xiaomi offered a screen with an almost 6-inch diagonal, the Mi A2 managed to be a fairly compact device, measuring only 158.7 x 75.4 x 7.3 mm and weighing just 166 g.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Cameras  The 12-megapixel device on the back of the device is the main sensor, while the supporting device can be switched to a "4-in-1, 2-micron super-pixel" – light scenarios, as more light can enter the sensor over a period of time. The super pixel functions can only be activated manually, ie. H. The Mi A2's Pro-Shooting Mode, although the smartphone's automatic settings are more than adequate for most lighting conditions you encounter. The Super Pixel mode is also supported by the front camera of the Mi A2 because it uses the same sensor, with Xiaomi also equipped with AI-powered beautification options and a 4500K "selfie light". Overall, the Mi A2 outperforms the Mi 6X in imaging capabilities, which offer slightly wider apertures and larger two larger sensors, both of which should provide improved low-light performance or facilitate movement freeze.
Xiaomi Mi A2 battery life
The Mi A2's The battery has a capacity of 3.080mAh, which is 80mAh less than the cell last year Mi A1 offered, although the inclusion of a more efficient processor this difference in daily use should be irrelevant. The battery is non-removable and usually gives you a single-charge day of use, as is the case with most other products in this price segment. The Mi A2 charges via a USB Type-C port (2.0) and uses a 5V / 2A charger
Xiaomi Mi A2 Software
Since both devices are being introduced as part of Google's Android One initiative, they are Available with stick versions of Android 8.1 Oreo and Project Treble support, which should allow them to get regular updates with less effort than ever before for Xiaomi. Future owners of the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite will also receive unlimited high quality Google Photos storage for each image taken with both device. Between Google Play Protect and native Assistant Assistant integration and a Vanilla operating system, you can experience Android the way you expect Google to pay hundreds of dollars for a Pixel smartphone.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Security
In addition to a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, there is not much security in the offering of Xiaomi Mi A2, but the Project Treble support should guarantee that the handset is regularly updated with monthly security patches at least the following two years. That's more than what can be said for just about any other Android smartphone, the price of which is $ 200, apart from HMD Global, Nokia.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Variants
Xiaomi will offer the Mi in three memory configurations and five colors – black, gold, rose gold, blue and red. The two cheaper models come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage while the most powerful is equipped with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal flash memory. All units have two slots for Nano SIM cards, but microSD support is not part of the package and NFC is not included. Connectivity should also not be a problem as all models support GSM (B2 / 3/5/8), WCDMA (B1 / 2/4/5/8), TDD-LTE (B38 / 40) and FDD-LTE (19659002 )
Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite
As its name implies, the Mi A2 Lite is essentially a bit downgraded version of the Mi A2 in almost every department, with Xiaomi apparently pushing it as his attempt to win the title of this year's best smartphone under $ 200. The device features a notched 5.84-inch FHD + (2,280 x 1,080) display with a density of 432ppi and a maximum brightness of 500 nits, making it the first Android One product with a 19: 9 screen. It is clocked by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 chip at up to 2.0GHz (the same as the Mi A1) and comes in two configurations – one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and one with dual flash memory and 4GB from RAM. Similar to the Mi A2, Xiaomi's Mi A2 Lite is an Android One device running a stock version of Google's Android Oreo.
The 4,000mAh battery of the handset should be operated after a single charge with limited use for two days. The two rearview camera configuration uses a 12 megapixel main sensor (1.25 μm pixel size) supported by a 5 megapixel sensor. Xiaomi's AI Beautify 4.0 technology is also part of the package here, along with a 5500K LED flash and a 5megapixel front camera behind an f / 2.0 lens.
