A closer look at the dual-camera setup on Xiaomi Mi A2

The Xiaomi Mi A2 features a 5.99-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2160) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Touted to be one of the most anticipated budget smartphones in India, Xiaomi Mi A2 will be launched in the Indian markets today. Talking about the cameras, the Mi A2 sports dual rear cameras featuring 12MP Sony IMX486 sensor with f/1.75 aperture, 1.25μm pixel size, EIS, and a 20MP Sony IMX376 sensor with f/1.75 aperture, 2.0μm pixels. The very popular budget Xiaomi smartphone has been amongst the top selling smartphones across price brackets, both globally and in India, since its launch in China in October previous year.

The Mi A2 is priced at Rs. 16,999 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB variant.

First sale of the Mi A2 starts at 12 noon, 16th August, 2018 on mi.com, Amazon India, and Mi Home stores. Xiaomi Mi A2 is an Amazon-exclusive smartphone and it will also be able via Mi.com. It is available with an internal storage of 64GB. They are aided by phase-detection autofocus, and a dual-tone dual-LED flash. It has been four years and the company has taken on the competition to local as well as other Chinese smartphone makers while taking the fight to industry giants such as Samsung and Lenovo-owned Motorola. As the name suggests, it's the successor to Xiaomi's highly praised stock Android running device.

For connectivity, the phone comes with the latest Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C for data syncing and charging, IR blaster and other basic connectivity features. On the front of the device is a 20MP selfie snapper with AI-powered Beautify 4.0, HDR, and Portrait Mode features.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 comes with a 3,010mAh battery, which seems rather small, but we expect it to perform as good as the Mi A1, if not better. The company has announced the Mi 8 in China as their new flagship and it is expected that the phone will launch in India this month.
