Xiaomi received some slack for its bad treatment of the Mi A1 Kernel source code last year. In fact, the company released the kernel four months after the handset launched and some ROM developers in the modding community were very unhappy about that. Now, the Mi A2 is out and this time Xiaomi will make it good by not repeating the same mistake it did earlier.
The company has released the kernel source code for not only the Mi A2 but also the Mi A2 Lite which is it’s smaller brother. Now, this is much better. This means the company has done well on its promises earlier to release Kernel source codes rapidly. The phone maker also released the Mix 2s kernel quite faster than before and the POCO F1 is barely a week old and it already has it’s Kernel out. This will help kick-start work on custom ROMs, TWRP recoveries and hopefully, people can tinker with their new devices a lot earlier.
As for the Mi A2, it is a mid-ranger with some formidable specs at a spectacular price. It has a Snapdragon 660 SoC, 6.0-inch Full-HD+ display, 4/6GB RAM, and 3,000 mAh battery and of course stock Android 8.1. It also has a much better camera setup than the Redmi Note 5 Pro and gets great snaps for its mid-range price tag.
