Xiaomi Mi A2 is all set to launch in India on August 8. The Chinese company introduced Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite in Madrid, Spain on July 24. Both are Android One smartphones, which means they run stock Android and do not come with MIUI. While Mi A2 is coming to India next month, it is not clear if Mi A2 Lite will also be making an appearance in the India market.
Mi A2 has a starting price of Euros 249 going up all the way to Euros 349 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage option. Mi A2 in 32GB storage and 4GB RAM will cost Euros 249, which is around Rs 20,000, the 4GB RAM and 64GB version will cost Euros 279 which is around Rs 22,000. The most expensive variant comes to nearly Rs 28,000 on conversion in India.
It remains to be seen how Xiaomi will price the Mi A2 in India. Mi A1 was launched at Rs 14,999 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage option, so the Mi A2 could be much more expensive than the original phone.
Manu Kumar Jain, the company’s Vice President and Managing Director for Xiaomi India on his Twitter handle confirmed that the Mi A2 smartphone will launch in India on August 8. “And yes! Mi A2 is coming to India on 8th August!,” his tweet reads.
