Xiaomi’s Mi A2 (Mi 6X) to Launch in China on April 25

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi launched the dual-camera Mi A1 last year, one of the best mid-range segment smartphones. Now, the company is ready for the second version of the smartphone, its successor, Mi A2, which will also be running on stock Android UI like its predecessor. Press invites are being sent out for the launch of a smartphone on April 15 in China, and there is a great chance the smartphone is Mi 6X, also known as the Mi A2.

For those confused with the name, the Chinese counterpart of the Xiaomi Mi A1 is named Mi 5X. So, the Mi A2 will be known as Mi 6X in China, one of the best-anticipated smartphones this year. The company’s official handle on Chinese media platform Weibo reveals that the device will launch in China on April 25. Also, in a Twitter post, Senior Vice President of Xiaomi Wang Xiang revealed that the launch event would take place at Wuhan University, the alma mater of the company founder Lei Jun. Though he didn’t reveal any name or details of the smartphone, he piqued our interest by remarking, “Are you excited to find out which device it is?”

The Mi A2/6X was recently spotted on the website of the Chinese telecommunications certification agency TENAA, revealing some of the device’s specs. According to the website, the smartphone will feature a 5.99-inch display with 1080p+ resolution. It will have an aspect ratio of 18:9. It will be backed by a 2910 mAh battery and offers a vertical dual camera setup and a fingerprint sensor below it.

From other leaks, it is known that the Mi A2/6X will be powered by a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm 626 chipset/ Helio P60 chipset, which will be coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. It is speculated that the smartphone will have a dual camera setup like its predecessor, consisting of a 20 MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture and a secondary 12 MP camera sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. It offers a 20 MP camera sensor with f/2.0 aperture on the front. The smartphone’s design will not likely carry a notch but will have smaller bezels. The Mi A1 was a tremendous competitor of the Honor 7X last year. We hope it will also be a worthy competitor to this year’s Honor 8X, likely to be launched towards the end of this year.
