Three days ago, head of Xiaomi India twitted the launch of Xiaomi Mi A2 would take place on August 8, confirming that the device would be packed by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 under the hood with a dual 12MP + 20MP camera on the rear and a 20MP AI-powered camera on the front.

Xiaomi has added ‘AI Camera’ features, including Portrait mode, Beauty Mode 4.0, and face recognition on the cameras.

For the 6GB RAM/ 128GB inbuilt storage variant, there’s no official announcement so far but it will be coming soon in the Indian market which literally means there will be an update information about its price tag.
