Xiaomi is gearing up for a global product launch, and while it doesn’t say what’s in store, speculations are rife that the Mi A2 may soon be a reality. The company has now confirmed via its official Mi forum that it will be hosting the global product launch in Madrid, Spain on July 24 where it will likely take the wraps off of the Mi A2. The Mi A2 will likely be a rehashed Mi 6X with Android One software.
Xiaomi is also conducting a new Mi Explorer program that will let select Mi fans travel to the global launch event for no cost, as well as gain exclusive access to the product, possibly the Mi A2. These Mi fans will possibly be the first to experience the device.
Since the Mi India social media handle has been at work here as well, it is obvious that it will have implications for the Indian market, and that it’s hinting at a global launch, there’s a very high possibility that the Mi A2 may just be in the offing. The Mi A1, to recall, was globally launched in India last year in September. Only this time, Xiaomi is switching places. This global unveiling will happen in Spain, which isn’t surprising since Europe seems to be Xiaomi’s next frontier after having successfully captured the Indian market.
It must be noted though that the Mi A1 isn’t the only Xiaomi product that has been globally announced outside of China. There have been more, including the hard to get Redmi Note 5 Pro. But since the company just launched the Redmi Note 5 Pro, a Redmi Note 6 Pro, so early in the life-cycle is a little hard to fathom. Although, it can’t be negated altogether as well. Or, Xiaomi may launch something else entirely, you may never know. But it takes no genius to ascertain that most people would be vouching for the Mi A2, especially after the super popular phone that was the Mi A1.
And Xiaomi already has the Mi 6X live and kicking in China and since the Mi 5X became the Mi A1 for the Indian market, it is anticipated that Xiaomi already has the necessary hardware ready. All it needs to now is to outfit it with Android One software, and we’ll be good to go.
Xiaomi, in addition, is also rumoured to be working on a Lite variant of the Mi A2 that will most likely have stock Android One software but a toned down Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor under the hood.
Elsewhere, Xiaomi is also launching the Mi Max 3, in China on July 19 which means it’s going to be quite a busy July for the company in question. Considering that both the Mi Max and the Mi Max 2 have landed in India, chances are Xiaomi may launch the Mi Max 3 here soon enough.
