Xiaomi’s Redmi A2 and the A2 Plus to launch with MediaTek Helio G36 CPU

Xiaomi is reportedly working on two new budget-friendly smartphones for their Redmi lineup, the Redmi A2 Plus and A2. These devices are currently in the testing phase, with the NBTC approving both for launch in Thailand. The model numbers indicate that both devices will be sold globally, just like it predecessors, the Redmi A1 and the A1 Plus.

Both devices have also been listed on TUV Rheinland and EEC certification websites, which confirm their imminent arrival in Europe. While these certification listings do not reveal much information about the devices, they do confirm that they will be available internationally.


Leaks suggest that the Redmi A2 Plus and A2 will have a similar design to their predecessor, the Redmi A1, but with incremental upgrades in terms of specs and performance. Reports indicate that the Redmi A2 will come with MediaTek’s Helio G36 SoC, which is better and faster than the Helio A22 in terms of processing, multitasking, and graphics.

The Redmi A2 is expected to have a 6.52-inch IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution, an 8MP primary camera, a secondary depth sensor, a 5MP front camera, and a 5,000mAh battery. The Redmi A2 Plus is expected to have similar specs but with a bonus back-mounted fingerprint reader.


It’s important to note that these specifications are speculative and cannot be confirmed until the devices are officially unveiled. While we await the Redmi A2-series, those shopping for a good and affordable Xiaomi device can look towards the direction of the Redmi 12C since it has good specifications at a very pocket-friendly price tag.

The Redmi A2 and A2 Plus are highly anticipated budget-friendly smartphones from Xiaomi’s Redmi lineup. While the devices’ design may be similar to their predecessor, they are expected to have incremental upgrades in terms of performance and specs. Let’s wait for the official launch to see what Xiaomi has in stock.
