Under the Mi A1 program, Android One, Google’s project which had good intentions but was stalled, received a significant boost from Xiaomi when it launched the first program’s device last year. After Mi A2 Lite and Mi A 2 were unveiled at a Spanish event today by the Chinese phone maker, the other two sequel devices joined Mi A1.
Are you surprise that Xiaomi came all the way to Spain? You should not be. After becoming a listed business, Xiaomi became keen on growing internationally. Spain is part of the countries in Europe where Xiaomi plans to make itself recognizable, and the two new A2 devices facilitate that. These two gadgets will be available for buying in more than 40 countries including Italy, Spain, France and eleven other European markets.
The Mi A2 Lite and Mi A2 are both running on Android one, can be charged via a USB-C port, so Xiaomi’s iOS-in Xiaomi’s iOS-inspired MIUI Android fork is still waiting to be introduced to other phones. The A2 is more like the premium version measuring 5.99 inches, being available with 128GB or 64GB storage and 6GB or 4GB RAM with a Snapdragon 660 processor. The dual rear cameras are 16 megapixels and 20 megapixels while the front one is 20 megapixels. Regarding the on-device storage, it ranges from 128GB, 64GB, and 32GB.
Mi A2 Lite is considered to be the budget option of the two, and it sports a lesser Snapdragon 625 processor with 64GB or 32GB of storage options and 4GB or 3GB RAM. This device measures less, 5.84 inches and some way weaker cameras.
The price for a Mi A2 is €249 to €279 ($291-$327) based on specs while the Mi A2 Lite is priced at €179 or €229 ($210 or $268), based on storage selection and RAM.
