Xiaomi Mi A1 was last year's surprise from the Chinese manufacturer, this being its first Android smartphone. Thus, the company launched a Mi 5X variant based on an unmodified Android operating system at a very good price. After the release of Mi 6X in the spring of this year, all fans of the original were waiting for a Mi A2 model to confirm, but that moment is delayed. Fortunately, however, we now know for sure that the phone exists and will be released sometime soon as it was listed in the GFXBench database
According to the listing on GFXBench, the new Xiaomi Mi A2 will benefit from the same hardware we saw on the Mi 6X just a few months ago. It's a Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset and 4 GB of RAM. However, the phone will be launched in the same configurations as the Mi 6X with a 6 GB RAM option
The Mi 6X was launched with a 5.99 "diagonal Full HD + screen, 12 + 20 megapixel dual camera system and a 20 megapixel front camera. Also, the phone benefits from a metallic construction and comes in several color options, something we hope to see on Mi A2
But it is not clear when Xiaomi Mi A2 will be on the market. Last year, the distance between launching Mi 5X and Mi A1 was just one month. Mi 6X has been announced for two months already, and Mi A2 is still not officially confirmed, so disclosure and launch could be imminent. We also do not know the price of the new device. If it is similar to that of Mi 6X, we can expect a price of about 1,100 lei in Romania (240 euros).
