Unlike many other smartphones launched over the a year ago or so (including the Mi A2 Lite), Xiaomi's new Android mid-ranger doesn't feature a display notch, thus having a relatively conventional-looking front panel, though its rear plate is somewhat reminiscent of Apple's iPhone X, primarily due to the vertical arrangement of the two cameras which are separated by a dual-LED flash unit.

There will also be a Mi A2 Lite device. It is also possible that the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite may sport an even lower price tag. The Mi A2 Lite on the other hand will see limited global availability and India is not one of the markets where the company will be launching it.

According to Xiaomi, it offers 20% better performance than the Snapdragon 636 processor that's powering the Redmi Note 5 and 79% better performance than the Snapdragon 625 which is running on the previous Mi A1. This is the same chipset that powered last year's Xiaomi Mi A1. The phone is likely to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage of internal storage.
