Xiaomi fans, it seems that your wish to get your hands on a stock Android version of the Mi 6X — expected to be called Xiaomi Mi A2 — will finally be granted soon. And that’s not all: The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite — which we at Revü suspect is the Redmi 6 Pro — will probably get its time in the limelight, too.
An announcement on the Mi forum reveals that there will be an international launch in Madrid, Spain, on July 24. While there is no mention of what’s going to be unveiled, all signs point to the Mi A2. Spanish tech enthusiasts already uploaded a now-deleted 11-minute hands-on video of the smartphone’s prototype to YouTube. And the handset is already listed on a major online shop in Europe, as we at Revü discovered last month.
The Xiaomi Mi A2 is the China-exclusive Mi 6X in Android One clothing. Meaning it’s basically the latter — specs, looks — minus the MIUI overlay.
Check out the specs sheet of the Xiaomi Mi 6X below. Chances are, you’re also looking at the Mi A2 specifications.
- 6-inch LCD screen, 2,160 x 1,080 resolution (18:9)
- Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor
- 3GB/4GB/6GB RAM
- 64GB/128GB expandable storage
- 12-megapixel + 20-megapixel rear cameras with LED flash
- 20-megapixel front camera
- Fingerprint reader (rear-mounted)
- 3,010mAh battery
- Android 8.1 Oreo
A toned-down version of the device — the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite — might be joining it at the July 24 event. A Poland-based website has spotted the second phone on an online store, complete with specs and price.
According to the listing, the Mi A2 Lite is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chip coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable memory. The screen is a bit smaller at 5.84 inches and has a 2,280 x 1,080 resolution. The dual-rear-camera system sees a 12-megapixel sensor paired with a 5-megapixel one. Its battery is supposedly bigger at 4,000mAh than the 3,010mAh cell on the standard Mi A2.
In case you didn’t notice, the said specs are the same as those of the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro. So maybe that’s why our source told us that the Redmi phone will have a different name when it lands in the Philippines. Interesting.
Anyhow, the Mi A2 will supposedly sell for around $350 (roughly P18,712) for the 3GB/64GB variant, $377 (P20,156) for the 4GB/64GB model, and $430 (P22,989) for the 6GB/128GB version. The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite, on the other hand, will reportedly cost $283 (P15,130). Take note that these are European prices. Philippine prices will surely be lower.
