Since it's a Google's Android One device, the phone comes with unlimited high-quality photo storage on Google Cloud as well as monthly security updates and two major OS updates. The smartphone may easily follow in the footsteps of its hugely popular predecessor.

Here's a closer look at the Xiaomi Mi A2 and everything that it brings to the table. The 8 GB version is expected to cost anywhere between CNY2,699 and CNY3,299 - the current price tags of the cheapest and most expensive Mi 8 on the market. It supports Quick Charge 4+ standard, but you'll have to buy a supported charger separately. The Mi A2 is an Android One smartphone that packs mid-range specifications. Under the hood is the 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform featuring Kryo 260 CPU and Adreno 512 GPU.

Xiaomi Mi A2 price in India is Rs. 16,999 for the variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage; the base 32GB storage model is not being launched in India, as Gadgets 360 had reported previously. However, Xiaomi has only launched the 4GB/64GB variant in India. Interested viewers will have to register on Xiaomi's website. Incidentally, there's a Reliance Jio 4G data bundle offer as well. Similar to its predecessor, the Mi A2 too, has a metal body.

- The Mi A2 looks a lot like the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Mi A1 had a baby. The new device will be an Amazon exclusive and apparently, the price of the device has also been leaked before it is announced today. Initially, the company will only sell the 4GB RAM variant in India and the 6GB RAM variant will be available soon.

As with other Xiaomi pre-bookings, the Mi A2 pre-order sale today will require the buyers to make the full payment for the handset online as there is no cash on delivery option. The front camera comes with a 20 megapixel selfie-camera with f/2.2 aperture. The camera appears to lack OIS. The smartphone also offers electronic image stabilisation (EIS) for video recording. In India, the company is launching only the Mi A2.
