Xiaomi Mi A2 – specs, features
To remind you, the Xiaomi Mi A2 flaunts a 5.99-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor and is backed by a 3010mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 technology support.
On the camera optics, there is a 12MP Sony IMX 486 sensor on the rear panel accompanied by a secondary sensor of 20MP Sony IMX 376 sensor. On the front, there is a 20MP shooter with soft LED flash and AI features.
The device still runs on Android 8.1 Oreo although Google released the new Android 9.0 Pie OS. It is something disappointing to its fans as Android One program theoretically touts faster software updates.
Other specifications of the Mi A2 includes a dual SIM support, Fingerprint sensor, and includes connectivity options like Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS, and USB Type-C. It measures 158.7 x 75.4 x 7.3mm and weighs 168g.
