The sequel to the Android One’s most famous moment comes with a refreshed design of format more elongated which reduces frames to take advantage of more the front.

When he left the Xiaomi Mi A1, the displays elongated or format 18:9 were not so widespread, but his successor comes at a time in which the format 18:9 has taken over the showcase mobile, also in mid-range, so the logical step was to adopt this new format.
As a result, the Xiaomi Mi A2 grows in height but kept the width, and the same thing happens with your screen, passes measure 5,99 inches as we have already seen in other models of the firm as the Redmi Note 5, with whom it has pretty much the same. The resolution is in full hd+, or what is the same, 2.160 x 1,080 pixels.
If we look at design details, we see some interesting changes as the corners of the screen have been rounded. In addition, even though the frames are still evident, have been reduced quite a lot compared to the first model. there is Also a noticeable change in the rear and it is the position of the camera, which passes from the horizontal disposition to a vertical one that reminds us quite a certain mobile apple. My A2 still keeping the fingerprint reader on the rear and features a chassis of aluminium unibody.
dual Camera with a touch of AI
Xiaomi has been improving their cameras with the buzzword fashion: Artificial Intelligence, and My A2 also benefits from these developments, but before let’s see what we offer at the technical level. The rear camera is combines two sensors 20 and 12 megapixel camera, both mounted under paths lenses with aperture f/1.75 for a good performance in low-light conditions.
My A2 selects the sensor the more suitable according to the decision, the main sensor of 12 megapixels with pixels of 1.25 um, and is intended for photos with good light, while the secondary sensor of 20 megapixel plays an important role in conditions of low light with a pixel of 2 um, which are grouped of four in four in a system known as SuperPixel (hello, HTC).
The reason for this duality is, once again, the popular portrait mode or background defocus. Moreover, in this case Xiaomi ensures that is improved edge detection for more natural results. In addition, it also includes the selector of scenes intelligent, a function that we were able to test it already with the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S and who is responsible for “reading” the picture to provide the best fit to each situation.
On the camera front also there is a significant jump in resolution, and it is that sensor that mounts account with 20 megapixels, specifically the same sensor that mounts to the front camera, so that we will be able to get us out selfies more spacious. Your lens is f/1.8 for better results with low light and it also has portrait mode (by software), in addition to the inevitable mode beauty and a added very useful: the HDR mode auto
