We have over 1000 service centers now in India with 3 call centers serving in 8 languages across India via different channels. According to the After-Sales Service Performance Report released recently by Red Quanta, we have been topped the chart and performing better than other mobile companies in India.
And all units of Mi A2 which will be sold in India, will be made in India. Moreover, we are committed to build high quality smartphones for our Mi fans and we are proud to share that we have an extremely low field failure rate.
Mi A2 delivers 139,000 on the AnTuTu benchmark score. You can see here that Snapdragon 660 delivers 79% increased performance vs Snapdragon 625. Mi A2 supports Quick Charge 4+ technology out of the box and it provides you with better thermal performance while charging.
Now comes performance. Mi A2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 - a highly powerful processor that features Qualcomm’s leading AI engine. Kryo architecture delivers ﬂagship-level performance and power optimisation across the board.
Out of the box, we, at Google, have run the device through a litany of tests to ensure a long-lasting battery. With Google Play Protect, your phone will be regularly scanned to dynamically help prevent malware, even when you are offline.
To talk a bit about the Android One platform and all the great things that come along with it, we have with us Pranab, Head of Android Partnerships, India at Google on the stage. Mi A2 is designed to help you get through your day. With Google Photos acting as the default gallery app, you get unlimited high quality photo storage.
Take a look at some sample selfies. You can clearly see that Mi A2 has grown a lot from its predecessor.
Let’s move on to the AI selﬁe camera. We’ve paired this 20MP sensor with a selﬁe light which is ideal for enhanced lighting while preserving the natural color. Not all smartphones come with front facing HDR, but we have put a lot of eﬀort into making it happen on Mi A2.
For video capture, Mi A2 also comes with EIS.
Take a look at some snaps.
Mi A2’s rear camera also features AI portrait mode. Mi A2 uses AI in portrait mode to deliver accurate edge detection, smart lens selection and more. Under bright light condition, Mi A2 uses the 12MP primary lens to capture the subject and the 20MP default secondary lens to capture the background, then it uses AI Semantic segmentation to accurately separate the subject and blur the background.
Here are some snaps shot by Mi fans
We have manual lens selection feature on Mi A2 which allows you to make the most of your smartphone’s camera in any lighting condition. We’ve bundled a lot of powerful hardware specs into Mi A2’s rear camera.
Compared to typical smartphone with 1.0 micron pixels, 1.25 μm pixels allow more light to come in which translates into bright and clear images. Take a look at the comparison shot. Each 4 of Mi A2’s pixels combine into 1 Super Pixel with an eﬀective size of 2 μm.
Regarding the rear camera, primary sensor is 12MP Sony IMX486, with f/1.75 aperture and large 1.25μm pixel size whereas, the secondary sensor is 20MP Sony IMX376 with f/1.75 aperture and 2μm Super Pixel. When you talk about aperture, a smaller number is better because it means the aperture is larger.
Mi A2 comes with a 5.99” FHD+ Full Screen Display. To withstand the daily nudges and accidents, we’ve paired the aluminium body with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and the body thickness measures in at just a comfortable 7.3mm.
Let’s dive right into the design of Mi A2. Mi A2 has a beautiful aluminum unibody design, with really subtle discreet antenna lines. We’ve also implemented a really sleek arc design which makes it comfortable to hold. Moreover, Mi A2 features Type-C USB which manifests as a completely symmetrical design.
We’d like to announce the second generation of this amazing collaboration between Xiaomi and Google. Presenting the all-new Mi A2!
According to Counterpoint, Mi A1 ranked amongst the world’s ten best selling smartphones and according to Canalys, Mi A1 is the best selling Android One device since it is launched.
This is all a part of our innovation for everyone approach. Regardless of nationality, income level, gender, or any other factor, everyone in the world deserves a better life through innovation. A company that really shares this vision with us is Google.
We achieved all these amazing results only because of our Mi fans. At Xiaomi we really believe that we have the world’s coolest fans. To celebrate our 8th birthday, we asked our Mi fans to share their stories with Xiaomi and photos of their devices. A huge amount of people sent in handwritten letters and we received more than 1600 letters.
Xiaomi India reached 10 million shipment within a quarter. This is the highest number of smartphones sold in any quarter by any brand in India! No.1 in 8 cities with an average market share of 34.25%.
We announced that we will not exceed 5% net proﬁt margin on our hardware business. If the net proﬁt margin exceeds 5%, we will return the excess to our users. Canalys reported us amongst the top 5 of 15 global smartphone markets. We had an amazing Q2 in 2018 with a dominating market share of 30% which means one out of three phones sold in India is a Xiaomi phone.
Let’s talk brieﬂy about how we achieved these milestones. In 2017, we successfully crossed 100 billion Chinese Yuan in revenue. According to iResearch, in 2017 our revenue grew by 67.5%. In fact, it makes us the fastest growing internet company and second fastest amongst all companies.
Xiaomi is a very young company, founded in 2010. Our CEO Lei Jun and co-founders built Xiaomi with a vision of building amazing products with honest prices so everyone in the world can enjoy a better life through innovative technology. On July 9th, we opened on the Hong Kong stock exchange and it was the largest tech or telecom IPO in the last 4 years since Alibaba IPO’d in 2014.
We’re live! A very warm welcome to all Mi fans and our media colleagues and everyone joining us today. (On stage - Manu Jain, VP at Xiaomi Global and MD at Xiaomi India)
