Xiaomi has confirmed the launch of Mi A2 Android One Phone in India. The company’s Mi India Twitter handle confirmed the date as August 8. It was confirmed soon after Xiaomi took the wraps off the phone for the global market in an event in Spain. Xiaomi launched the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite Android One-backed phone on Tuesday after their launch in China as Mi 6X and Redmi 6 Pro respectively.
The Mi A2 is backed by Android One so that the interface will be familiar to most users in India. Xiaomi had started the new series in India last year with the launch of Mi A1 and later published the same in the other global markets as well. Now, the new models plan to further the global reach of the line-up.

The Mi A2 is slated to be available in 3 colour, Blue, Black and Gold.
What is Android One?
