Xiaomi Mi A2 & Mi A2 Lite with Android One Smartphones Officially Launched

Xiaomi has announced the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite, two new phones running Android One. Google’s stripped-down operating system was originally intended for low-end devices, but the Mi A2 phones are firmly mid-range and should provide a solid stock Android 8.1 experience.

Last year, the Mi A1 was unveiled as the first Xiaomi smartphone without its in-house MIUI. It is the second best-selling smartphone, only next to Redmi 5A. Now, the new Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite will continue to come with stock Android instead of MIUI.
