Xiaomi Mi A2 Might Be Powered By The Snapdragon 626 Chipset
Last year Xiaomi launched its first ever stock Android running device, the Xiaomi Mi A1. According to a series of leaks, the company might soon launch the Xiaomi Mi A2. Initially, the smartphone will be launched in China as the Xiaomi Mi 6X and the same will be relaunched globally as the Mi A2 with stock Android. The Xiaomi Mi 5X was launched in June of 2017, and the company might follow the same pattern for the Mi 6X as well. However, considering the listing on TENAA, the device could launch sooner than expected.
Previous leaks and rumours about the Mi A2 were about the design and the display of the phone. This leak sheds light on the remaining specifications of the Xiaomi Mi A2. The smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 Octa-core chipset. The Mi A1 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, and the 626 looks like an incremental upgrade. In fact, except for a minor clock speed upgrade, these chipsets have the same features and capabilities.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Specs
The Xiaomi Mi A2 has a 5.99 inch IPS LCD 2160 x 1080 px display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the device has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 Octa-core with 2.2 GHz clock speed. Additionally, the device has 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage which will be expandable via a microSD card.
