Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite passes through IMDA and TENAA Certification
A sleek notched midranger
Back in September, Xiaomi unleashed the Mi A1 and joined the Android One club. The handset was widely regarded as a success, so it’s only natural a sequel would be in the works. The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite may be the next iteration of the smartphone, and a device bearing that name is making the rounds through certification.
Companies try to be coy about keeping new smartphone releases under wraps. Some manufacturers handle this better than others although you can’t hide anything from regulatory bodies like the FCC, TENAA or the IMDA. The latter is where new smartphones and slates head in Singapore before being released and is where the Xiaomi M1805D1SG has appeared.
A device carrying the model number M1805D1SG has shown up with the moniker of Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. That is about as clear as it gets, even if the rest of the details are sparse as listings of this nature generally only show the connectivity options. Well, those same digits appeared at TENAA as well, so we have a rough idea of what to expect from this particular device.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite Specifications
As you can clearly see, the phone is in the mid-range class. It’s a good-looking handset with the popular notch and one that should provide ample pop as there is a tier for everyone. It also has three cameras with a 5MP front-facing snapper and a 12MP sensor on the back. The size of the second rear sensor is unknown but is visible in the TENAA photos. The usual array of connectivity options are listed as well along with a fingerprint scanner.
On paper, the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite looks to be a nice upgrade over the previous version. It will have a slightly larger display with a higher resolution but still keeps all the popular features that made the first one a hit. There’s been no word on the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite release date at this time, but pricing and availability should be announced soon.
