Mi A1 vs. Mi 5x: 4 key differences

Mi A1 vs. Mi 5x: 4 key differences

As for the rest of the story that has been leaked in various forms over the past weeks, this is what we are looking at.

Google had first introduced Android One handsets in 2014 with Indian phone makers like Micromax, Spice and Karbonn, with all devices priced under Rs 6,500.

What else new, though? Google promised that it would provide the Android Oreo update to this smartphone soon by the end of this year 2017. The smartphone will be available in three colours- gold, matte black, and rose gold (pink).

There's still an audience, and a sizeable one that would still take Android Nougat over Marshmallow and it would want it as quickly as possible. The front also has the regular capacitive (non-backlit) keys - one home button key, one for multi-tasking and going one page back - along with a 5MP selfie camera. It is the first dual-camera Xiaomi phone to go on sale in India, however.

This time around, in order to sell Android One devices, Google has sought out the smartphone maker that managed to sell 25million device in India in the last three years, not a hard decision for Google.

The newly launched Mi A1 device comes with Aluminum unibody design with curved Antenna to improve the signals and the Lenovo K8 Note along with Moto G5S and Coolpad Cool Play 6 sports Metal body. The camera module has a telephoto and a wide-angle lens setup, which looks to have been implemented well by Xiaomi. Even this device is capable of recording 2160p videos at 30fps and has the support of 8MP camera on the front.

Xiaomi and Google have officially come together to revive the latter's down-but-not-out Android One program with the new Mi A1. The Xiaomi M1 A1 contains the dual rear cameras setup, and it is the affordable smartphone in the Indian market. There G5 Plus is powered by Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor with a clocking speed of 2.0 GHz coupled with 3GB/4GB RAM and Adreno 506 GPU. The back houses the circular fingerprint at the centre, MI branding at the bottom and LED flash on top corner.

The handset runs on stock Android and runs Android 7.1.2 out-of-the-box.

Also, because there's third-party skinning involved - and because Xiaomi likes to update each and every device in its portfolio more or less on similar lines - the fact that users have to wait longer for updates, doesn't go down well with many.

In India, the only market where the Mi A1's availability has been detailed so far, the phone will sell for Rs. 15,000, which is about $235. Verdict The Xiaomi Mi A1 offers a strong build quality, good display and an adequate battery life.

Xiaomi has also added their own Mi Store, Mi Feedback and Mi Remote apps, that wouldn't have been present in previous iterations of Android One devices. It includes 10 volt smart power amplifier which amplifies sound on speaker mode.

The inbuilt storage of this phone is about 64GB, and it is expandable through the microSD card up to 128GB.

The Mi A1 will be out on September 12th in India.
