Mi A2 from Xiaomi proudly stands as the only prod­uct in the com­pany port­fo­lio un­der Google’s An­droid One ini­tia­tive run­ning on un­touched stock An­droid 8.1 promis­ing timely up­dates. Em­brac­ing the 18:9 as­pect ra­tio and larger 5.99” dis­play means say­ing good­bye to the ca­pac­i­tive but­tons of pre­de­ces­sor A1. How­ever, the un­for­tu­nate ex­clu­sion of the head­phone jack and mi­croSD slot might leave some fum­ing although a Type-C USB to 3.5mm don­gle is in­cluded. At least the pro­ces­sor has re­ceived a much-needed up­grade to Qual­comm Snap­dragon 660 so per­for­mance should not be an is­sue when paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB stor­age. The cam­era im­ple­men­ta­tion has also changed as there is a

12MP+20MP dual cam­era setup on the rear with f/1.75 aper­ture and larger pixel size. The front 20MP cam­era should make good use of the Sony IMX376 sen­sor. Fi­nally, the over­all slim pro­file has lead to a rel­a­tively mod­est

3010mAh bat­tery and a jut­ting out cam­era mod­ule.

T3 Says: The Mi A2 is very in­trigu­ing but there are con­ces­sions made that ev­ery­one might not be able to di­gest.
