Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi on Wednesday expanded its Android One line-up in India by bringing its Mi A2 to the country. 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 past year. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with an option between 4GB and 6GB of RAM and storage variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The smartphone will be up for pre-orders on Amazon and Mi Store starting 12 noon, today, 9th August 2018. It supports Quick Charge 4+ standard, but you'll have to buy a supported charger separately.

The device sports metal unibody design and comes in Lake Blue, Gold, Rose Gold, and Black color options. This brings the smartphone directly in line with ASUS' base-model ZenFone Max Pro M1 (RM699, 3GB RAM/32GB storage), whose biggest strength over the Redmi Note 5 - besides its stock Android experience and larger battery - was its lower price tag. Earlier estimates had suggested that the device will be priced around Rs 20,000.

There is also a launch offer for Jio customers, who will get 4.5TB complimentary data and Rs. 2,200 instant cashback. Also, just the 4GB+64GB variant will be launched in India today while the higher end 6GB+64GB variant will probably make its entry into the market later. The front has a 6.4-inch curved Amoled display (without a notch) giving it a screento-body ratio of 93%. The motorized camera module hides a 16MP + 20MP dual rear camera and a 25MP front camera.

Two more people, Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess , later came into contact with the lethal substance and were hospitalised. London and its allies have accused Moscow of trying to kill the Skripals and says the two cases are likely linked.

The Xiaomi Mi A2's pricing remains shrouded in mystery as of now.

In the optics department, the Mi A2 features a 12MP Sony IMX486 sensor having 1.25 micron pixel size and a secondary 20MP Sony IMX376 sensor for portrait pictures. Other features include 3,300mAh battery with fast charge support, Hybrid dual SIM slot, expandable storage, rear fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port, and Android 8.0 with Face unlock. The device will be the successor to the Mi A1 which was previously launched in the sub-continent. Being a part of the Android One program, it comes with bone stock Android instead of MiUI, which you may love or hate.
