Android One is alive and well. At least, that is the statement that Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One makes. As is expected of Android One smartphones, the Mi A1 runs stock Android OS. It has a dual rear camera setup and Xiaomi has included the MIUI camera app. We all know that stock Android camera is crap; don’t we? Xiaomi isn’t risking having the photography experience on this dude messed up.
The Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One features a 5.5-inch display, 5-megapixel selfie camera, a 12-megapixel dual camera at the back, and a 3080 mAh battery with quick charging. The processor is Snapdragon 625 clocked at 2 GHz. As such, the Mi A1 should deliver a good balance between performance and battery life.
