The Xiaomi Mi A1, with a 5.5-inch screen and dual camera, will be available in Asia, Europe and Mexico later this month at a price of $ 234.
Xiaomi’s debut on Google’s Android One program is already a reality. The Chinese company has announced that its next smartphone, called Mi A1, will be its first foray into Android One . Priced at $ 234 , it will be available in Asia, Europe and Mexico later this month.
As part of its partnership with Google, the Mi A1 will feature Android Nougat features and get updates from the Google operating system shortly after they become available. That means it will be upgraded to Android Oreo in late 2017 and will be one of the first devices to get Android P when it hits the market.
The Xiaomi Mi A1 is a 5.5 inch phone with 1080p display, a full metal body 7.3 mm thick and a Snapdragon 625 octacore processor at 2 GHz, paired with an Adreno 506 GPU. The phone has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, expandable up to 128 GB with a microSD card, and a battery of 3,080 mAh according to Xiaomi will allow the use of the Mi A1 a whole day.
Another great attraction of this mid-range smartphone is its dual-camera 12-megapixel camera , which allows for wide-angle and telephoto shooting with 2x optical zoom, as well as portrait-style shots that blur the subject’s background.
According to TNW reports , the Mi A1 will go on sale in India on September 12, at Flipkart, Xiaomi’s own site and in retail stores. Among its main rivals, is the Moto G5S Plus, with the same size and also has dual rear cameras. However, belonging to the Android One program gives the Mi A1 the advantage of receiving updates from Google before the competition.
