The Mi A1 made a pretty big impact on the Indian market a few months ago with its Android One program. The Mi A1 has been a game changer for Xiaomi India and now the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is all set to introduce to us the successor to the Mi A1, the Mi A2.
Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Mi 6X in China last week with the same rear design of the Redmi Note 5 Pro which was launched last month. The Mi 6X is reportedly going to be renamed as the Mi A2 and will be sold in the Indian markets.
About Mi A2 And Another Android One Device
According to recent reports, Xiaomi is working on two new Android One smartphones, now it is not actually known whether the two smartphones include the Mi A2 since the exact Mi 6X won’t be released in India. Although its probably including the Mi A2 according to some publications, we can’t tell for sure.
The leaks come from the firmware files which shows that the company has been developing two Android One models. The folks at XDA Developers reported that the two new Android One smartphones are codenamed “jasmine_sprout” and “daisy_sprout”.
Last year, the Mi A1 was codenamed “tissot_sprout” pointing at the obvious existence of the Mi A2.
Both the aforementioned devices come with the Google’s Android One program and hence the firmware shows that there won’t be any preloaded MIUI apps and that the updates will be pushed out very often.
One more thing worth noting is the XML file titled “com.google.android.feature.ANDROID_ONE_Experience”, this file exists within the permissions folder which confirms the Android One experience.
Also, XDA spotted that under the codename “jasmine_sprout” it is reported that it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, similar to the one on the Mi 6X.
Keeping aside the Mi A2, there is a lot of confusion between all the devices and amongst them, one is the codenamed “daisy_sprout”.
Keeping in mind that “sprout” now means Android One experience it’s pretty clear that this device will also be a part of that. According to the reports, it is said that the second device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC.
