Xiaomi has scheduled a global launch event on July 24 where it is expected to launch the Mi A2 Android One smartphone. The company announced on its Mi forum post that a global launch event will be held in Madrid, Spain on July 24 without naming a device.
The new Mi A2 is the global version of Mi 6X that Xiaomi introduced back in April in China. The Mi A2 is said to feature similar specs as the Mi 6X with some changes like it will pack stock Android OS just like the last year’s Mi A1. The India launch is also expected soon after the global launch on July 24.
