Xiaomi may be the champion of phone teasing, as it came all the way to London to show me the Mi A2: a solid all-round phone with a highly affordable price tag. The Mi A2 will be the second generation Android One smartphone launched by Xiaomi.
As for their prices, the Mi A2 sells at €249, €279 and €349 for the different storage options shown above, while the Mi A2 Lite is priced starting from €179. Xiaomi introduced its first Android One smartphone last year and the device will be completing its update cycle in September this year. So, in terms of internals as well as on design aspects, both of them are identical.
Mi A2 comes with an aluminum unibody design and will be available in three color options - Gold, Blue, and Black.
The new Redmi 6 comes with a 5.45-inch 18:9 HD+ full screen display with a screen-to-body ratio of 80.5%.
The Mi A2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, which is an excellent midrange performer. Mi A2 sports a dual camera setup at rear which includes 12-megapixels sensor with 1.25 μm pixels which clicks clearer photos in daylight and a 20-megapixels senor with 2 μm 4 in 1 pixel size which clicks brighter images during low-lighting conditions. On the front, the smartphone carries a 20 MP f/1.8 camera which can record Full HD videos. Mi A2 works on MIUI 9.5 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo under Android One program which means, the users will be able to receive an update for Android P and future updates pretty quickly compared to other smartphones in the mid-range segment. Mainly, the Mi A2 Lite - unlike the Mi A2 Lite has a notched display.

As for the cameras, there is a combination of 12MP + 5MP cameras, the secondary one being used for depth sensing. A new portrait mode was also teased, which should make for an interesting experience with the device. As one would expect, this dual camera setup supports Portrait Mode that lets you capture photos with Bokeh Effect that blur the background to help the subject in focus stand out.
The Android One program started back in 2014 to give OEMs a way to launch low-power affordable phones with Google's clean version of Android. Measuring 176.15×87.4×7.99mm, the device comes equipped with a circular fingerprint sensor and an infrared sensor.
