    The official Tweet from Manu Jain also gives a hint regarding the launch of the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 in India on the 8th of August along with the launch of the Xiaomi Mi A2.

    Pricing

    The Xiaomi Mi A2 is likely to launch in two variants in India with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage and a 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The model with 4 GB RAM is likely to cost Rs 16,999 and the 6 GB RAM model is likely to be priced at Rs 21,000. Lastly, the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is likely to cost Rs 2,000 in India.

    Specs-sheet

    Just like the Xiaomi Mi A1, the Xiaomi Mi A2 will be running on stock Android OS to offer faster software update. Just like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Mi A2 has a dual camera set up at the back with a different implementation. The smartphone has a 12 MP + 20 MP camera combined with a 20 MP front-facing selfie camera with AI capabilities.

    The smartphone has a 5.9-inch IPS LCD display with an FHD+ 2160 x 1080px resolution screen offering an 18:9 aspect ratio display with a 2.5D curved tempered glass. Under the hood, the smartphone is running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core chipset with 4 GB or 6 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB storage with a dual SIM card slot with support for 4G LTE and VoLTE on both SIM card slots.

    The smartphone has a 3000 mAh sealed battery with a USB type C port for charging and data syncing. However, the smartphone does miss out on a 3.5 mm headphone jack and the retail package will include a USB type C to 3.5 mm jack converter.

    Conclusion

    Xiaomi has decided not to launch the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite in India, as the company might launch the same as the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro with MIUI 9 skin on the top. However, as the smartphone misses out on a 3.5 mm headphone jack and also misses out on a micro SD card slot might be a huge letdown.
