These are the follow-ups to Xiaomi's Mi A1, which launched nearly a year ago as the company's first Android One device in partnership with Google.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is going to be a cut-down variant of the Mi A2 and also happens to be the rebranded version of Redmi 6 Pro.

Xiaomi was one of the first smartphone manufacturers to adopt themes, delivering the MIUI theme store back when this wasn't a common feature. They carry Google's stock, skin-free version of its mobile operating system. This phone won't be coming to the United Kingdom, the USA or Australia.

What's Changed From The Mi A1 To The Mi A2? A February 2018 Counterpoint Research report found that the A1 was the 9th best-selling phone in the world. The smartphones will be unveiled shortly and here's what we know so far. The second generation Xiaomi Android One phones have received significant upgrades but still are easy on the wallet and available in many more markets than its predecessor so let's check them out.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite - The Good, The Bad And The Notch! In March, Huawei introduced its P20 phones in Paris, France. The launch will kick off with later this month and will eventually branch out to 40 nations. The smartphone has launched on 24th July globally in Madrid, Spain.

It also remains to be seen if this potential market disruptor will perhaps mark Xiaomi's long overdue expansion to the USA in the near future.

Do note that European pricing is higher than Malaysia, so expect it to be priced lower when it hits our shores.

Or maybe you could get some friends together to start a letter-writing campaign to Xiaomi to launch this phone officially wherever you are. Google took 9 years; Facebook, 12 years; Alibaba, 17 years; Tencent, 17 years; and Apple, 20 years. To be fair, Xiaomi - which is only 8 years old, having been incorporated in 2010 - is naturally expected to have bigger revenue jumps compared to older, more established brands. For the Mi A2 Lite variant, the listing reads RON 1,000, which is roughly Rs. 17,200 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant and RON 1,200 (approximately Rs. 20,700 for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage). Xiaomi suggests that this 2um pixel size 4-in-1 Super Pixel technology combines 4 pixels at once to create a larger pixel, making the end product photo better than ever. Both rear and front cameras would support artificial intelligence-based scene detection capabilities. When it comes to RAM and storage, you can choose from a combination of 4 GB RAM/32GB storage (€249), 4 GB RAM/64GB storage (€279), and 6GB RAM/128GB storage (€349).

In the camera department, the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite features a dual rear-facing camera with 12 + 5 megapixel and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Its storage tops out at 64GB and RAM at 4GB.

The newly launched Nokia 3.1 is an option for stock Android lovers, but the specifications of the phone are mediocre. Both phones come in black, blue, and gold. It's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 chip clocked at up to 2.0GHz (the same one that powered the Mi A1) and is offered in two configurations - one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space and another one with double the flash memory and 4GB of RAM. No Philippine release date has been specified as well.
