How To Unlock Bootloader Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite – The Unlock Bootloader process is very important if you want the Mi A2 Lite Pro phone to have root access. Therefore, here I will explain the steps to open the bootloader. I have also provided a tool to unlock which can be downloaded below.
Shortly after the release of the two Redmi series, the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, Xiaomi re-introduced its new sibling with the name Redmi 6 Pro or Mi A2 Lite for the global market. With Pro frills, of course this phone has a higher Redmi 6 series than the Redmi 6 and 6A.
In addition to offering higher specifications, Xiaomi also offers a different design than the previous Redmi-Redmi series, so this time Xiaomi provided the Mi A2 Lite’s Notch alias bangs design, making it the first Redmi series to have bangs.
Combined with two rear cameras located on the edge, this phone at a glance is very similar to Apple’s iPhone X. In addition, the aspect ratio of the screen that is carried is also quite different, if most phones now use an 18: 9 ratio, the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite uses a 19: 9 ratio.
But fortunately, with such a wide ratio, Xiaomi decided to use a screen resolution that was quite high too, namely 1080 x 2280 pixels. The screen itself is between the Redmi 5 Plus and the Redmi 5, which is 5.84 inches. But unfortunately, even though the processor used is a higher version than the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, it is no different than the Redmi 5 Plus.
This phone is still using the most popular processors from Qualcomm for midsize phones, the Snapdragon 625 series (Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53) combined with Adreno 506. Xiaomi provides three variants at the same time during its launch which is separated between RAM and ROM capacity, ie variants 3GB / 32GB, 4GB / 32GB and 4GB / 64GB.
Mi A2 Lite uses a pure Android OS from Google named Android One. For the camera sector, Xiaomi again uses a dual camera setup on the back. Camera – the camera has a resolution of 12 MP and 5 MP and LED Flash, while the front camera has a 5 MP resolution that can be used to record 1080p video.
But unfortunately, the infrared sensor is again absent in the Mi A2 Lite as well as in the Redmi 6 and 6A. Although it is rarely used, but I think this infrared feature is very useful in certain circumstances.
The cellphone with a 4000 mAh battery was released with a choice of 5 standard colors such as Black, Blue, Red, Gold and Rose Gold. For the time being, Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is priced at 999 Yuan for 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage variants.
