The Xiaomi Mi A2 will be an Amazon exclusive and will be available via the flash sale.

Xiaomi has officially launched the Xiaomi Mi A2 in India on the 8th of August 2018 with Android One OS. Also, this time, it has EIS built-in for video stabilisation, a feature consumers asked on the Mi A1. The dual rear cameras are placed vertically at the top left corner of the phones.

The main differentiator between Honor Play and the Xiaomi smartphones is the notch display up front. Both the camera sensors at the rear have a f/1.8 aperture.

The successor of Xiaomi Mi A1 comes loaded with a metal design and it employs the 18:9 tall display. It has a 6.2-inch IPS display in 19:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels. Not just the camera, but the company has ramped up the performance with the latest Snapdragon 660 chipset and 4GB of RAM. However, looking at the worldwide pricing of the phone which was announced to be Euro 279 (about Rs 22,500) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant and Euro 349 (about Rs 28,000) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option, it can be said that the phone will sell around the same price point only. Another variant of Mi A2 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will be launching soon.

China to impose additional tariffs on $16B worth of USA goods
Over the weekend, Trump told a rally he holds the advantage over China, adding playing hardball on trade is "my thing". It would likely have to impose penalties on USA companies doing business in China to make up the difference.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 packs a 12MP + 20MP dual-camera setup at the back, and a 20MP camera at the front. The smartphone also houses a 20-megapixel Sony IMX376 sensor with Beautify 4.0, and "Portrait Mode", for selfies. The AI cameras powered by the processor's NPU are capable of detecting 22 different scenes from 500 different scenarios. The smartphone features a 16-megapixel selfie camera. But with a better processor, Quick Charge 4.0 and other appealing specifications and features, the Xiaomi Mi A2 holds its own against the likes of Vivo V9 and the Samsung Galaxy J8. Fortunately, Xiaomi will ship the Mi A2 with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter.

Xiaomi Mi A2, the second generation of the highest selling Android One smartphone, launched yesterday.

Xiaomi's previous premium device in India was the Mi Mix 2, launched a year ago. Honor Play also has the company's custom EMUI 8.2 with Android 8.2 Oreo.

You can pre-order the phone starting tomorrow from 12 p.m. onwards on Amazon.in and Mi.com.
