Xiaomi Mi A2 pops up in a Geekbench listing, confirms Snapdragon 660 SoC

Xiaomi Mi A2

Xiaomi’s much sought after upgrade of the Mi A1 has just appeared on Geekbench. This happens just after reports of a Taiwan release coming first for the handset. The Mi A2’s launch is neither confirmed nor denied by the phone maker itself which has kept fans of the series in a dilemma. However, this along with the certification of Mi A2 Lite in Singapore should give hope to potential buyers.

What are the expected Mi A2 specifications? 

So, the Mi A2 coughed up a score of 1630 in single core tests and 4,567 in multi-core. If that’s not what you’re interested in, then let’s talk specs. Internals are pretty much the same as the Mi 6X as has been suspected. The listing shows a Snapdragon 660 chipset with 4GB of RAM. That isn’t to deny the possibility of a 6GB RAM variant like it happened in case of the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Of course, Android version is Oreo 8.1. That’s all for Geekbench listing.

This year’s Mi A2 will also come with a much better 6.0-inch Full-HD+ screen and also an upgraded 20MP selfie camera. Both are areas where the Mi A1 lacked and needed improvement. The rear camera setup is also promising with a 12MP + 20MP setup and lots of AI tweaks.

If the frequency of leaks is any indication, the Mi A2 launch is on the cards, but maybe not this month. Xiaomi is currently launching the Redmi Y2 in India tomorrow.
