It is set to replace the Mi A1 in Xiaomi's line of stock Android devices. We're going to see a lot of action across price segments says Karan Bajaj, as he does a round-up of the most interesting ones.In Pic: Oppo Find X (L) and Xiaomi Mi 8 (R).

According to a report by Gsmarena, Mi A2 was spotted on Amazon India for pre-booking at a price of Rs 17,499 for the base variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

While that doesn't look like that much, it's a significant savings in the budget handset department. The 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant is expected to come to India at a later date.

Now that the playing field has been leveled, it becomes much harder to recommend the ZenFone Max Pro M1 over this handset now.

The 5.99 inches screen is an IPS LCD full HD+ display with an 18:9 ratio. Inside its metal body is a Snapdragon 636 processor and a 4,000 mAh battery that charges via microUSB. It has a 12MP + 12MP dual camera setup with OIS and dual pixel phase detection autofocus on the rear while the front has a 20MP selfie shooter. In front, you'll be greeted by a 13MP selfie shooter with an f/2.2 aperture lens.

The 4GB/64GB variant of Xiaomi Mi A2 smartphone will be available in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Lake Blue color variants.

The Xiaomi Mi A2's pricing remains shrouded in mystery as of now. Not just the camera, but the company has ramped up the performance with the latest Snapdragon 660 chipset and 4GB of RAM. It will be exclusively sold via Amazon India, Mi.com, and Mi Home stores. Moreover, they have plans to launch a 6GB variant in the coming months. The Mi A2 doesn't have a microSD card slot.

Connectivity options on the phone include 4G LTE, Bluetooth v5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Miracast, an IR emitter, and USB Type-C. However, it seems Xiaomi will undercut that estimate by a substantial margin. The Mi A2 is an Android One smartphone, which means it has stock Android UI, and should receive updates directly from Google. It will also get the Android Pie update and will also support Android's new gesture-based update with that comes with the update. The camera offers AI-powered Portrait Mode and 4K video capture at 30 fps.
