Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is rumoured to be working on its Android One smartphone Mi 5X’s successor- The Mi 6X. Recently TENNA has recently certified the Mi 6X in China. The Mi 5X was launched outside of hometown China as Mi A1 and thus the Mi 6X is expected to be launched outside China as Mi A2. One of the tipster (@IshanAgarwal24) has found references of Mi A2 and another upcoming smartphone, the Redmi Y2, in the source code of official Xiaomi website in India which suggests that both the phones will be launched in India soon. The Redmi Y2 is successor of Redmi Y1 which was launched last year in November and was a selfie centric smartphone.

There may be a dual camera setup (12MP + 20MP) on the rear and a 20MP camera on the front for selfies and video calls. It may ship with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and will most likely be an Android One device too. The expected battery capacity is 2,910mAh.
