Xiaomi schedules global launch event in Spain on July 24, Mi A2 Android One smartphone expected

After launching the global Mi Explorer program to offer its fans a chance to travel to Spain, Xiaomi has officially scheduled its global launch event in Spain, Madrid on July 24, where it is expected to introduce the Mi A2, the global version of the Mi 6X which was introduced  back in April.

According to a recently-leaked video, which was removed later, the phone is said to have similar specifications as the Mi 6X, but will come with a 3.5mm audio jack. However it is not clear if the smartphone will feature a microSD card slot which the Mi 6X doesn’t have.
