Xiaomi might only have launched its Mi A2 smartphone in India last week but the Chinese company has already gone on to update their Android One smartphone. The budget mid-range phone which comes at a respectable price of Rs 16,999 in India has now been updated with improvements in the camera and security department.
The highlight of the update is the ability to record FullHD (1080p) videos at a frame rate of 60fps which coupled with the inbuilt gyroscope-based EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) results in capturing super-smooth videos with no details lost. Previously, the Mi A2 was able to capture Full HD 1080p videos but only at 30fps, which is pretty standard.
The update, spotted first by GSMArena, also delivers the latest batch of Android security updates dated August 5, 2018.
In case you don’t know, the Mi A2 is Xiaomi’s second smartphone under the Android One program, meaning it will get updates frequently as compared to other Xiaomi smartphones. The device itself runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and offers a pure Android experience with no noticeable bloatware. The device features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.
The Mi A2 by Xiaomi is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset along with Adreno 512 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Imaging on the phone is taken care by a 12-megapixel primary sensor with Sony IMX486 sensor, f/1.75 aperture and 1.25-micron pixel size and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor with Sony IMX376 sensor, f/1.75 aperture and 1.0-micron pixel size, at the back while there is a 20-megapixel shooter with 1.0-micron pixel size, a f/2.2 aperture on the front.
The Mi A2 is available for a starting price of Rs 16,999 on Amazon India.
