Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite: Price, availability, and release date

Xiaomi Mi A2 listed on two popular online retail stores for pre-orders ahead of launch

Not only features, the official pricing and availability details has been leaked just before the launch.

Much like its name implies, the Mi A2 Lite is essentially a slightly downgraded version of the Mi A2 in nearly every department, with Xiaomi apparently pushing it as its attempt to win the title of this year's best smartphone under $200. The prices may go up to Rs 16,500 without discount. The Mi A2 Lite comes in at €179 (around $209) for 3GB/32GB, and €229 (around $267) for 4GB/64GB.

In India, both the devices are expected to cost over Rs 14,000 to Rs 15,000. The Mi A2 also foregoes hardware navigation buttons in favor of onscreen ones.

When Xiaomi launched the Mi A1 back in September 2017, it also revealed the company's sales figure for the month. Here's the Mi A2 in Red, Gold, and Black color options. As an Android One phone, it runs a completely stock version of Android and will get quick updates to new versions of the platform for at least two years.

Both the smartphones will be getting get two years of assured Android upgrades on the software till Android Q.

Between Google Play Protect and native Google Assistant integration, as well as a vanilla operating system, this is the closest you can get to experiencing Android in the way Google intended you to without paying hundreds of dollars for a Pixel smartphone.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite - The Good, The Bad And The Notch! This device is pretty comparable to the Mi A1, which was excellent to be sure. The 6-inch full-HD display packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with 4GB and 6GB RAM variants respectively. And speaking of photos, you won't care one bit that the dual camera setup on the back takes pretty decent outdoor shots and has a portrait mode for those neat portraits with out-of-focus backgrounds. For the front, it has a 5-megapixel camera. The main camera setup is likely to offer 4K video recording, whereas the video recording capability of the front-facing selfie camera is expected to be capped at 1080p. It will have a 12MP primary camera coupled with a 5MP shooter, and a 5MP selfie camera. All this is powered by a 3010mAh battery which you can charge using the USB Type-C port on the phone.

There's enough differences between the Mi A2 and A2 Lite that Xiaomi is targeting two diverse set of users with its latest Android One phones. In fact, the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is the first Xiaomi smartphone to feature the Snapdragon 710 and the Mi MAX 3 Pro is the second phone on the list. Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite will come to India as well, though an exact launch date is unclear at this point.
