Xiaomi is among those popular smartphone brands, that keeps introducing new and affordable devices to the market. It’s no secret that the company is working on its Mi 6X smartphone which will launch as Xiaomi Mi A2 in India. Previously, Xiaomi had launched its first Android One smartphone called the Xiaomi Mi A1 last year.
This smartphone made a pretty impressive place for itself in the mid-range smartphone category. However, with the imminent launch of a new smartphone, it looks like the company has discontinued its Mi A1 smartphone. The smartphone has been removed from the company’s official website and Flipkart for interested buyers.
According to reports, it is the first time that Xiaomi has stopped a product within a time frame of seven months. This could only mean that Xiaomi Mi A2 might launch sooner than we might have expected. Similar to its predecessor, the Mi A2 will be an Android One smartphone and will run on Android Oreo 8.1.
Xiaomi Mi A2: Expected Launch Date
In light of the recent discontinuation of the Mi A1 smartphone, reports cite that the successor will debut on April 25 in China. And, it will make its way to the Indian market in the month of May. As of now, there have been no revelations regarding the specifications of the smartphone. Though, one can expect similar specifications between Mi A1 and Mi A2 smartphones.
Additionally, the company has also remained tight-lipped about the price of its upcoming smartphone. However, what we do know is that the smartphone will fall into the affordable price segment.
