Xiaomi Mi A2 spotted in hands-on video

Xiaomi Mi A2

The Mi 6X came out in China back in April this year and is probably going to hit the international market as the Mi A2. Xiaomi hasn’t offered up any clues as to when this is happening yet, but a new video indicates that a launch is happening soon.

A Spanish YouTube channel called PimpiTronic somehow got its hands on what they claim to be the Mi A2 prototype. Unfortunately, the video has been taken down. While it was around, the 11-minute video provided a detailed look at the handset and its specs, even featuring some sample photos taken from the dual 20MP + 12MP rear camera.

Thankfully, there are a couple of screenshots of the video still around. The photo above is probably what it looks like with stock Android Oreo. The Mi A1 was the first Xiaomi device to be part of the Android One family and its successor is very likely to follow in its footsteps.

As a result, the Mi A2 might offer at least 2 year’s worth of Android OS updates. Other major specs like the Snapdragon 660 processor and aforementioned dual lenses remain the same as the Mi 6X. Even the design appears to be largely retained, down to the 5.99-inch FHD+ 18:9 display.

The Mi 6X is priced at CNY 1599 (approx Rs 17000) for its 4GB/64GB model. It rises to CNY 1799 (about Rs 19130) for its 6GB/64GB option and ends at CNY 1999 (roughly Rs 21260) for its 6GB/128GB version. Given the video’s appearance, it’ll hopefully be coming out sooner rather than later.
