One question that seemed natural following the week was whose advice, if anyone's, was Trump taking in handling this episode. Bush, who welcomed the Russian leader in the East Room as "my friend". "Maybe in a year or two", he tells The Hill .

Under the hood, Xiaomi Mi A2 is rumoured to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM.

Mi A2 carries a 12MP + 20 MP dual lens camera with video recording up to 4K. The manufacturer rolled out more than a handful of phones powered by the chipset - including last year's Mi A1 - so there's not going to be a performance differential between the A2 Lite and what we saw last year. It would sport a glass build on the front, covering a 5.99-inch fullHD+ 18:9 aspect ratio screen, and metallic body on the back. Powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM option. To address this issue, Xiaomi has launched announced the Mi A2 Lite.

In terms of optics, the smartphone will likely come with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor within its dual rear camera setup and a 5-megapixel front camera sensor. Xiaomi is also selling numerous other Mi and Redmi-series devices in major European markets like France, Italy, and Spain, all of which deliver stellar value for money. Xiaomi's AI Beautify 4.0 technology is also part of the package here, together with a 5500K LED flash and a 5megapixel front camera mounted behind an f/2.0 lens. At the front end, the device receives a 20MP camera with HDR options and soft selfie light, making it flawless for selfies and video calling.
