One of the mobiles of last year was the Xiaomi Mi A1. Although it is still difficult to find in the official store in Spain, this smartphone offers a lot for a very low price, with European warranty and also a clean Android version. The device was also a huge success in India. The device is currently priced at 13,999 INR. The Xiaomi Mi A1 was our best smartphone recommendation in 10-20k INR price range for the year 2017.
Mi A1 has been a revolution thanks to its price of 209 euros (in India 13,999 INR) and more than enough features for the vast majority of users. Although it has weaknesses, such as the lack of NFC or a camera that falls short on many occasions, it is still Xiaomi’s great entry into Europe. And now, in 2018, what awaits us with the Xiaomi Mi A2?

is still early to confirm, but the first rumours already indicate that the launch could be at the next Mobile World Congress. Maybe a very close date considering that Mi A1 arrived very recently, but in Xiaomi are very launch a new smartphone every so often.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Probable Specifications and Features
Update: 12/03/2018: A new video leak shows Mi A2 having 18:9 Display, You can read the full story here > [Video] this would be the Xiaomi Mi A2 with its possible screen 18: 9
In terms of features, here is the trick, because to keep this price so attractive you must maintain similar characteristics that meet the expectations of a mid-range. For now, it is believed that it will have slight technical improvements, such as a 64GB base memory, a new Xiaomi Surge S2 processor and compatibility with 256GB microSD cards.
It would keep details such as Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, FM radio, a battery between 3000 and 3200 mAh or USB-C 1.0 connection for loading and data transfer. And yes, everything indicates that Xiaomi also maintains the metallic body that she has liked so much.
On the other hand, we see that Mi A2 would lack two details to close a perfect circle of technical characteristics: NFC and wireless charging. The first for payments and the second because it is increasingly common among smartphones, although of course, for this Xiaomi should get rid of the aluminum body.
Will it keep the same price as Xiaomi a1? A team of 200 euros is a very cheap mobile, to the point that it is doubtful if the Chinese company has real benefits with it. It would not be weird to see a slight rise in price compared to the original.
