Xiaomi Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite launched: Price, specifications and features

The Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite is all set to launch in Spain tomorrow. Unlike many other smartphones launched over the previous year or so (including the Mi A2 Lite), Xiaomi's new Android mid-ranger doesn't feature a display notch, thus having a relatively conventional-looking front panel, though its rear plate is somewhat reminiscent of Apple's iPhone X, primarily due to the vertical arrangement of the two cameras which are separated by a dual-LED flash unit.

Xiaomi Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite will be made available in a total of 40 countries.

Out of the two phones, the Mi A2 is the higher-end device. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is priced at €179 (Rs 14,000 approximately), while the 4GB+ 64GBmodel carries a price tag of €229 (Rs 18,000 approximately). The Mi A2 Lite, meanwhile, may cost RON 943 (roughly Rs. 16,200) for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage and RON 1,143 (roughly Rs. 19,700) for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite are very interesting Android One devices, and they should provide very good value for money as well - it's Xiaomi devices' key selling point.

Ahead of the teaser for today's announcement, rumors had suggested that the Mi A2 would be based on the Xiaomi Mi 6X that came out in April.

"The screen is slightly smaller than on the regular Mi A2 at 5.84", and the second rear and front cameras are only 5MP.

Brayden Malaske, from Oklahoma, said no one was anxious when they first got on the boats, but it "suddenly got very dark". Parson said the main focus of the investigation is to unite the families and give them the resources needed.

Xiaomi has been using the Snapdragon 660 platform for over a year now, and the Mi A2 is the latest to feature the chipset.

Mi A2 carries a 12MP + 20 MP dual lens camera with video recording up to 4K.

Xiaomi Mi A2 gets dual rear cameras, a combination of 12MP primary Sony IMX486 sensor and a secondary 20MP Sony IMX376 sensor. While not much has changed from the Mi A1 to the Mi A2, there are still a few things that the company has chose to differently with the latter. The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage version will cost Euro 279.

Israel Restricts Cargo Transport into Gaza Amid Ongoing Violence
The same day Hamas said it launched rockets and mortars in response to the Israeli air strikes which wounded 30 Palestinians. Palestinians in Gaza view the balloons and kites as legitimate resistance against Israel's more than a decade-long blockade.

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.

What Xiaomi could have also done differently is add a fast charging capability to the Mi A2 since the chipset supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 technology.

Or maybe you could get some friends together to start a letter-writing campaign to Xiaomi to launch this phone officially wherever you are. Secondary camera of the device is a 20MP sensor with front-facing LED flash and a f/2.2 aperture. Meanwhile, the front comes with a modest 5MP selfie camera that supports AI portrait mode.
