A few days ago AliExpress jumped the gun and put the new Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite on sale ahead of the expected launch date announced by Xiaomi. What we didn’t know was what’s under the hood of the Xiaomi Mi A2, not to mention the fact that both of them run Android One.
While the Mi A2 Lite is powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor but sports a 4,000 mAh battery, its bigger brother the Mi A2 (video above) upgrades to a Snapdragon 660 but has the smaller, 3010 mAh battery. Both of them do feature a fingerprint sensor on the back but only the Mi A2 light has a headphone jack, so keep that in mind.
As we previously reported, the Mi A2 Lite is available in two versions, both of them expandable to up to 256 GB: one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
The 5.84-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2280 px) that you can admire below, proudly bears a notch and a rear camera module of 12 MP + 5 MP.
The larger Mi A2 upgrades to a 5.99-inch, 2160 x 1080 px display without a notch and takes a serious shot at amazing camera features.
The selfie shooter is an AI camera with 20 MP with large, f/2.2 aperture and a few beauty portrait modes. On the back you’ll get a 20 MP + 12 MP combo that can shoot 4K video at 30 FPS and has a heavy focus on AI, offering beautification features, HDR, single color temperature flash and more. Of course, RAM and storage were upgraded as well. There are three Mi A2 models available – 4 GB + 32 GB, 4 GB + 64 GB and 6 + 128 GB.
While you’re looking over the specs, do consider the prices as well.
The Mi A2 Lite is around $210 for the 3 GB/32 GB version and $270 for the 4 GB/64 GB, while its bigger brother goes for $290 for the 4 GB/32GB, $325 for the 4 GB/64 GB, and $410 for the 4GB / 128 GB model.
Both the Mi A2 models are already available in Spain and will soon be launched in other 40 countries.
