Share

The smartphone went out of stock in India, some media reports are claiming that Xiaomi discontinued the Mi A1 but it will return "soon". It will feature portrait mode and EIS. The handset is said to be called Redmi S2.

Folks at xda-developers have managed to grab this information from the firmware files, which revealed the device's launch in India and China. According to the files, the smartphone will sport a HD+ (720x1440 pixels) LCD display with 18:9 aspect ratio. On the inside, the Mi 6X may be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor although some reports suggest the phone may come with a Snapdragon 626 processor. Xiaomi has used SD 625 on several of their midrange devices, and it is known for striking a balance between performance and efficiency.

Last year Ford Australia backflipped on its plan to release an official 500kW Roush supercharger kit for the Mustang . The new Mustang will lead Ford's renewed charge in a storied comeback to the Supercars Series.

The main highlight of the phone is its camera setup, where it is said to have either the 12MP Sony IMX486 or 12MP OmniVision OV12A10 sensor as the primary sensor, and a 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 as the secondary sensor.

For the storage, we found that there will be a 16GB variant. It is likely that the smartphone will come with a microSD card slot to expand the storage. While there is no information on its pricing yet, we expect the Mi A2 to be a budget smartphone. Even though the new MIUI 9.5 is associated with Android Oreo, the devices in question aren't getting Oreo, rather, the update only brings Xiaomi-made changes and updates based on Nougat 7.1. Though the screen size is pegged at 5.99 inches, possibly the only disappointment worth mentioning is that the Mi 6X will have a "smaller than usual" 2,910mAh battery. With Snapdragon 625 on board, it will help the device to perform better at low energy, and the low-resolution display will help to extend the battery further. As per the roadmap, the new MIUI 9.5 should now be available for those using the Redmi 4 (Redmi 4X), Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus as well as Redmi Note 5.
