The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is not what you would call “official”, but that does not mean that you should give up on a good deal. And it’s a good deal – a seller on AliExpress is asking for $190/ $210 for the phone, even though the initial rumors were for $283 or so.
Anyway the listing confirms the specs of the phone – a metal body with a notched 5.84” screen (1,080 x 2,280px) on the front and 12 + 5 MP dual camera on the rear (which shoots 4K video).
The battery is a bulky 4,000mAh which should last forever with the power efficient Snapdragon 625. It’s paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The phone has a dual SIM slot with a dedicated spot for a microSD card so storage expansion is guaranteed.
That’s the $190 version of the phone, but the $210 phone is a much better deal, it has 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. Not bad upgrades for $20 bill. Both are available in Black, Blue and Gold.
