Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi launched the Mi 6X in China in April. The smartphone is yet to be launched outside China where it will be renamed as Mi A2. Its predecessor Mi A1, which came with a dual camera smartphone and is Xiaomi’s first Android One device was a hit in countries like India. Customers are growing impatient and showing their displeasure since it has been two months since the launch. But now it looks like it will change as the Mi A2 Lite handset with model number M1805D1SG appears at IMDA which is the Singapore’s communication authority, similar to Taiwan’s NCC and USA’s FCC. The device was also cleared FCC certification.
Now the Mi A2 Lite may be a variant of the Mi A2 with 32 GB internal storage. The standard variant is supposed to come with 64 GB and 128 GB of internal storage. Also, there is the possibility of it being a completely different device not related to the Mi A2. The company gave hinted earlier this year that it intends to launch an Android One smartphone in the Redmi series.

The Mi A2 (Mi 6X) features a 5.99-inch display with 1080p+ resolution, an aspect ratio of 18:9. It is backed by a 3010 mAh battery and offers a vertical dual camera setup and a fingerprint sensor below it.
