Xiaomi has just, more or less, confirmed that the Mi A2 Android One handset will be announced on July 24. The company announced its July 24 a few days back, and now it released a teaser on its official Twitter handle confirming that the next-gen Android One handset is coming. Xiaomi did not specifically mention the ‘Mi A2’, nor July 24 event this time around, but it’s quite obvious what’s going on here.
If you take a look at the provided tweet down below, you’ll be able to see what the company posted, along with an image it shared. The company’s July 24 event will take place in Madrid, Spain, and aside from mentioning the next-gen Android One handset, Xiaomi also used the ‘AndroidOne’ and ‘2isbetterthan1’ hashtags, while it also shared an image of the upcoming devices. That image is a bit small, but that sure looks like the recently-leaked Mi A2 handset, in other words, a rebranded Mi 6X handset. As was the case with the Mi A1, the Mi A2 will also be a rebrand of one of the company’s handsets, with the Mi A1 it was the Mi 5X, while the Mi 6X will essentially become the Mi A2. The main difference between the two phones will be the fact that the Mi A2 will ship with stock Android (Android One project), while the Mi 6X comes with MIUI. The two phones are expected to sport the exact same design, though.
The Xiaomi Mi A2 will be a metal-clad smartphone, all of its physical keys will be included on the right, and it will sport thinner bezels than its predecessor, the Mi A1. Two cameras will be included on the back of this phone, while a fingerprint scanner will also sit on the back of the Mi A2. The device will sport a 5.99-inch fullHD+ display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel the phone, while the device will include a 3,000mAh battery on the inside. 12 and 20-megapixel cameras will be included on the back of the Mi A2, while a single 20-megapixel camera will sit on the phone’s front side.
