The phone initially launched in China as the Mi 6X, and it is now making its way to the Indian market with the launch which is scheduled to happen at 4 PM today. Speculations are that the body of the phone is pretty similar to that of last year's Mi A1, while the rear resembles the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
This is Xiaomi's second phone featuring Android One (Stock Android Experience), which is based on Android Oreo (8.1). Moreover, the smartphone will be an Amazon exclusive in the country. In this scenario, should Mi A2 be the purists first choice on a budget? The event, which is taking place in New Delhi, will kickstart at 4 PM.
Display: The Mi A2 comes with a 5.99-inch "full-screen" FHD+ IPS LCD display with a 2160x1080p resolution and 403ppi pixel density. The phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 SoC.

It supports Quick Charge 4+ standard, but you'll have to buy a supported charger separately. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS and USB Type-C. Incidentally, Xiaomi Mi A2 does not have a 3.5mm audio jack, which means traditional 3.5mm headphones can not be connected to the smartphones directly. Sensors on the handset include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, and proximity sensor. However, looking at the worldwide pricing of the phone which was announced to be Euro 279 (about Rs 22,500) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant and Euro 349 (about Rs 28,000) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option, it can be said that the phone will sell around the same price point only. Xiaomi Mi A2 will be available in three colour options- Black, Gold and Blue.
