Xiaomi Android One Powered Mi A2 And Redmi S2 To Arrive Soon
After the launching of Xiaomi Android One Smartphone, Mi A1, it might be rolling its successor Mi A2 before the year ends. Reports had even hinted that the Chinese tech company might also release an accompanying phone, Redmi S2. So, there are two smartphones to be released by Xiaomi instead of one.
Mi A1 was rolled out last year in Indonesia, Europe, and other well-targeted regions for marketing. It was the first smartphone from Xiaomi that offer faster charging and loading time experience, Android O 7.12.29 OTA update, and utilizes the fingerprint unlock from the reboot.
The soon-to-be-released Mi A1 successor Xiaomi Andriod One smartphone could be a rebranded Mi 6X, released in China last week. The upcoming Mi A2 is believed to have the same features and capabilities of Mi 6X – 5.99 inches FHD+LCD display, two 20MP and 12 MP cameras at the rear, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. The 20MP camera will give users awesome selfie experience. It is believed to be powered by MIUI 9.5 and Android 8.1 Oreo.
The assumption that Mi A2 is just a rebranded Mi 6X is not unfounded. The Mi A1, released last year, was simply the Mi 5X. Therefore, it is likely that same thing will happen all over again. A smartphone with stock Android has the advantages preferred by most users because it has no pre-installed apps.
Developers firmly believed that the Chinese tech company will be rolling out two smartphones, not only one, this year. This suspicion arose after some developers had spotted a sweet spot: Mi A1 was codenamed “tissot_sprout.”
The inclusion of “sprout” in the code meant that the same is included in the Android One. Some geeks at XDA Developers had spotted a firmware, codenamed “daisy_sprout,” and extracted some telling information of the processor inside. It turned out that the device has the same processor of last year’s Mi A1 and Redmi Note 5 released early this year.
This “daisy_sprout” is likely to be another Xiaomi Android One smartphone to be released. In fact, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had hinted that the company is thinking of rolling out more phones this year with stock Android. Redmi series is preferred, he said, with the Indian market in mind. Developers are looking forward to seeing Xiaomi Redmi S2 soon, too.
