Mi A2 is backed by a 3,010mAh battery and the Indian variant will support Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 4.0 technology. However, there’s no special fast-charger in the box.
On the camera front, Mi A2 features dual rear sensors, a combination of 12MP Sony IMX486 lens with f/1.75 aperture and a 20MP Sony IMX376 secondary sensor with a f/1.75 aperture.
