Xiaomi announces Mi A2 and A2 Lite Android One Devices

0

Xiaomi has announced two new replacements for the Xiaomi Mi A1 from last year. And their approach this time round is sort of different. There’s an A2 with a normal 6 inch 18:9 display. And then there’s an A2 Lite with a 5.84 inch 19:9 display plus a notch.

It seems the company is giving people who love the notch an option here as both devices pack good specs. Also as usual, the devices are very attractively priced: The A2 will cost about $290 while the A2 Lite will cost about $179 for the 3GB version, and $270 for the 4GB RAM version. Both are expected to go on sale in over 40 countries, although they are already available in Spain.

If you’ve been keen on getting a device with USB type-C then the A2 is your go-to option. But if you don’t mind the now aging micro-USB port, then the A2 Lite is what you’ll go with, and while at it, you’ll enjoy better battery life at a nicer price.

Looking forward to when they’ll be available in Kenya. Which one do you prefer between the two? Personally, I would get the A2 Lite, but the fact that it doesn’t have a USB type-C port is a no no.
