There is a 5.99-inch IPS display with Full HD+ (2160×1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

Since it's a Google's Android One device, the phone comes with unlimited high-quality photo storage on Google Cloud as well as monthly security updates and two major OS updates.

After launching the Mi A2 globally, Xiaomi has launched the phone today in India. 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 4GB variant of the smartphone will be available for Rs 16,999, while the 6GB variant will soon be launched in India.

The device will be available to pre-order starting tomorrow and sales start from August 16th. The smartphone is set to launch at around 4:00PM in the national capital, and is being anticipated to be priced competitively. It will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone bears a 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.2 aperture, coupled with LED flash and PDAF. It also has a 3D face scanning face ID feature (with infrared emitters, similar to the iPhone X) and VOOC fast charge support. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, IR Blaster, and USB Type-C port.

In terms of software, the phone runs stock Android, rather than the MIUI ROM which runs atop other Xiaomi phones. There is a 20MP front camera with AI-powered Beautify 4.0, HDR, and Portrait Mode. On the other hand, the phone carries a 20MP front camera with Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS).

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 Xiaomi Mi A2 is certainly an interesting smartphone from a company that prides itself with a lower field failure rate.
