Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi Y2, Mi A2 Price in India Cut by Rs. 1,000


According to the latest IDC report, Xiaomi is the number one smartphone brand in India for Q3 2018. This makes Xiaomi reign in on the top position for the fifth consecutive quarter, and to celebrate this milestone, the Chinese giant has dropped the prices of three phones in India. India head Manu Kumar Jain has announced that Xiaomi is dropping the prices of the Xiaomi Mi A2, Xiaomi Redmi Y2, and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro by Rs. 1,000. The company says that the price cut has been possible due to the price reduction of some of its component costs.

Xiaomi says that it has reduced the prices of three phones – Xiaomi Mi A2, Xiaomi Redmi Y2, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro – by Rs. 1,000. Therefore, the Redmi Note 5 Pro 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, which was earlier priced at Rs. 14,999, is now priced at Rs. 13,999. Similarly, the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, which was earlier priced at Rs. 16,999, is now priced at Rs. 15,999.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, which was earlier priced at Rs. 16,999, is now priced at Rs. 15,999. The Xiaomi Mi A2 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, which was earlier priced at Rs. 19,999, is now priced at Rs. 18,999. And lastly, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 4GB RAM + 64GB variant also sees a price cut from Rs. 12,999 to Rs. 11,999. Xiaomi notes that all of these new prices will come into effect from 12pm IST today, across all sales platforms.

To recall, Xiaomi had increased the price of the Redmi Note 5 Pro variant in May this year, due to changes in PCBA import taxes and the rupee depreciation. The price of the 4GB RAM variant was increased back then by Rs. 1,000, and now the new price introduced by Xiaomi today brings it back to the original launch price.

Apart from the price drops, Jain separately also announced that Xiaomi is launching the Redmi Note 6 Pro in India on November 22.

Mi A2 Android P Update Release Spotted in Beta, Download Link Available


Mi A2 Android P Update Release Spotted in Beta, Download Link Available

Mi A2 Android P update is up for download, but it’s still in beta — proceed with caution

Android Pie updates have been slowly but surely rolling out to select devices, and Mi A2 by Xiaomi seems to the latest in line. Xiaomi Mi A2 Android Pie update beta has been spotted on the XDA Developers forums, hinting at an imminent stable release for the device in the near future. Xiaomi’s Mi A series, unlike any of its other phones, runs on stock Android and doesn’t have any MIUI customisations like the other phones, apart from the camera app on the device.

Mi A2 Android P update beta download

XDA Developers has spotted the Android Pie beta release for the Xiaomi Mi A2 smartphone. Screenshots of the beta release running on a Xiaomi Mi A2 surfaced on the XDA Developers forums, and it comes with features like navigation gestures, adaptive battery, revamped navigation buttons, and more. The screenshots suggest that it is very much like stock Android Pie found on other phones. A beta ROM download link is also available, though we don’t recommend users install it – they should wait for the official beta release.

The report claims that although the beta ROM is official, it may be filled with bugs and issues. This beta release isn’t arriving via OTA yet, and therefore TWRP and Fastboot methods need to be used, the report suggests. This means that the Mi A2 will need to be flashed, for you to be able to run Android Pie beta release. Of course, you’ll need an unlocked bootloader as well. If you don’t wish to do that, then just wait for an OTA rollout, or the eventual stable release to come in.

In terms of pricing, the Mi A2 costs Rs. 16,999 in India, for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant in India. The 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant costs Rs. 19,999, and the device comes in Black, Gold, Lake Blue, and Rose Gold, and Red colour options. The 6GB RAM variant was made available for Rs. 17,999 during the festive season as part of its introductory offer.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Allegedly Explodes While Charging, Mi A2 ‘Fingerprint Sensor Bug’ Said to Impact Battery Life


Xiaomi Mi A1 Allegedly Explodes While Charging, Mi A2 'Fingerprint Sensor Bug' Said to Impact Battery Life

Xiaomi has marked the fingerprint sensor bug with a “need more information” tag on its MIUI forums

Xiaomi Mi A1, the company’s first Android One smartphone, is now in reports for having allegedly exploded while it was being charged. The owner of the affected handset was reportedly jolted out of his sleep when the Mi A1 exploded. In addition to the Mi A1, Xiaomi is facing outrage for a reported fingerprint sensor bug within the Mi A2, the successor to the Mi A1, that brings a sudden battery death issue. Both Android One models by the Beijing-based company are currently anticipated to receive an update to Android 9.0 Pie. Unlike other Xiaomi smartphones that have MIUI on top of Android, the Mi A-Series models run stock Android out-of-the-box.

As posted in an MIUI forum post, a Xiaomi Mi A1 exploded while it was being charged overnight. The owner of the affected phone often put it on charging overnight. But one day, it is said that he was jolted out of his sleep after hearing an explosion from his phone. He ignored the blow and went back to sleep, but in the morning, he found the Mi A1 in an “extremely [damaged] condition.”

It is unclear whether the user was charging the affected Mi A1 using a genuine charger. Also, the MIUI forum post says that the user reached the customer care. The damaged Mi A1 unit is claimed to be eight months old and used with a protective case. Importantly, this was the first such case reported for the Mi A1.

Alongside the alleged explosion of the Mi A1, Xiaomi has come in the headlines for a Mi A2 bug that is impacting its battery life. Several users on the Linus Tech Tips forums have reported that the fingerprint sensor of the Mi A2 is using all the eight cores of the Snapdragon 660 SoC at maximum speed. This results in the sudden death of the battery and reduces the screen-on time to three or four hours.

Xiaomi hasn’t revealed any details around the bug, but on its MIUI forums, it has marked the bug as “need more information”, as spotted by Android Authority. The user reports suggest that the problem exists on a large number of Mi A2 units for over last one month. However, the company has neither pushed any bug fix nor acknowledged any issue.

We’ve reached out to Xiaomi for clarity on the alleged Mi A1 explosion as well as the reported Mi A2 battery issue and will update this space accordingly.
