The Xiaomi Mi A2 will launch in India on August 8 officially. This one is the much-awaited successor device of the previous generation Mi A1 device. But here is a catch that the company might not launch the 4GB/32GB variant in India as of now. Xiaomi India is focused on mainly 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant just like before. There is some rumor that Xiaomi will launch 6GB/128GB model as well. However, there is no MicroSD card expandable option in Xiaomi Mi A2.
On Tuesday 24th July, this week, Xiaomi launched the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite smartphones in Spain as a Global launch. The handset will be available in Gold, Black, Rose Gold, and Lake Blue color variant. This time there is no metal grey or rose gold option available by Xiaomi in Global variant. Whereas, the Global version of Xiaomi Mi A2 supports QC 3.0 option. But as per Gadgets360 post, we can expect the Quick Charge 4.0 support in Indian Mi A2 variant. The fast charging feature can deliver up to 5 hours of juice in just 5 minutes of charging.
