A mystery device called Mi A2 Lite appeared out of nowhere on IMDA last week. IMDA is Singapore’s Communication’s regulator website much like FCC is in the US. Hence, an appearance here would only mean one thing – that the handset is close to being released in Singapore.
Mi A2 Lite or Redmi 6: What would it be called?
Now, the big question is, what is this new mystery device? Well, we have at least some model numbers that will aid our investigation. The model number of the said device on IMDA is M1805D1SG. When we cross-reference this with some Xiaomi models that passed TENAA recently, we get these – M1805D1SC, M1805D1SE, and M1805D1ST.
These model numbers are of the Redmi 6 variants. And the only thing that differs between them and the Singapore model number is the last two alphabets. This says a lot about the identity of the Mi A2 Lite. There’s a very high chance that Xiaomi will launch the Redmi 6 as the Mi A2 Lite in Singapore.
Since the Redmi 6 has stopped by TENAA last month, we know a lot about it. It has a notched 5.84-inch Full-HD+ display. The processor could very well be the Snapdragon 625 and RAM options range from 2GB to 4GB. Storage options are also aplenty with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB all reported earlier.
