Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite Revealed on AliExpress

Xiaomi is going ahead of its schedule to release the budget Mi A2 Lite smartphone. The smartphone was first launched via AliExpress in China and has been up for almost a day now.

Let’s dive into its features.

Design and Display

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite

The 5.84″ Mi A2 Lite has a design that consists of a metal chassis with a notch above the display to convey a more premium look. It will be available in Black, Blue, and Gold.


Here’s What Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Will Look Like

The display itself has a Full HD+ (1080 x 2280) resolution, which is better than 720p found in most phones of this range, in a 19:9 configuration.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, you get a Snapdragon 625 processor, which is not the latest but still gets the job done. Xiaomi’s other phones in this range themselves have an SD 650 now. It is accompanied with 3/4 GB RAM, and 32/64 GB of expandable storage.


The back consists of a dual-camera setup, with a 12 MP f/2.2 + 5 MP telephoto lens, LED Flash and 4K video recording. A fingerprint scanner sits underneath the vertically-placed setup.

The front 5 MP camera comes with AI-assisted modes, too.


The battery capacity is set at 4000 mAh, though, it likely misses out on fast-charging.

The pricing of the Mi A2 Lite is set at around $190, which should be much lower than what the phone will be priced elsewhere, which was expected to be around $280.

  • “…metal chassis with a notch above the display to convey a more premium look.”
    To me, any mobile having a notch looks awful.

  • Huawei Honor 7C is better option. 3000mAh battery but one charge easily lasts 3 days even if you play games and surf internet. Also there is no hybrid dual sim bullsh*t. There are two slots for sims plus third slot for MicroSD card. Software of Huawei phones are well polished.
