The Mi A1 was Xiaomi’s first Android One device that offered a fluid stock-Android experience at a competitive price. It was based on the Mi 5X which came with a dual-camera setup and it was only sold in China. Next week, Xiaomi is about to launch their Mi 6X and it gives us a clearer picture of what to expect for their next Android One smartphone.
When I think of smartphones that really caught my eye last year, the first phone that comes to mind isn’t any big flagship, despite the fact that it was the year of juggernauts like the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and iPhone X. No, because I wouldn’t buy those phones, they’re just too expensive for someone with my bank account balance.
The phone that really interested me was the Xiaomi Mi A1. Xiaomi’s legendary value-for-money hardware coupled with the slick experience of stock Android? Sign me up.
After the first one launched, I think there was only one thing on everyone’s mind: Will there be a sequel? Well, as it turns out, there very well might be a Mi A2 and this is what it could look like.
