Is Xiaomi Mi A1 the next Android One smartphone?

Though the Android One smartphones were popular initially, the launch of budget smartphones from companies such as Xiaomi with a better set of features out-shined the same. The Xiaomi Redmi 3S, Redmi Note 3, Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4 have become best sellers in the developing markets. Going by a recent report from XDA Developers citing krispitech, it looks like Google and Xiaomi will join hands to launch an Android One smartphone.

A recent listing on POSTEL, an Indonesian certification agency for telecom products has listed a Xiaomi smartphone that does not run the MIUI skin. Though the Mi 5X that was launched in the last month in China is believed to be released in other countries, this listing is not claimed to be that of the Mi 5X.

From the description of the alleged Xiaomi smartphone, it is claimed that the one spotted on POSTEL is a dual-SIM device and runs on Google's software. It is stated that Android One gives access to premium security features as well as apps from Google. This clearly points out that Google might launch a Xiaomi made Android One smartphone in the coming months.

Recently, a mysterious Xiaomi smartphone with the moniker Xiaomi Mi A1 was spotted on the RF certification page of the company. There are widespread claims that the Mi A1 might be the upcoming Android One smartphone.

The POSTEL listing reveals that the alleged Mi A1 could be inspired by the Mi 5X as it is claimed to feature a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display and carry the model number MDG2. The RF certification page also revealed that the model number of the Mi A1 is MDG2, confirming that it is the upcoming Android One device.


For now, there is no official confirmation regarding the Mi A1 and we don't know when the smartphone will be unveiled. As Android O is likely to be unveiled today, we can expect some details regarding the Android One smartphone to be revealed as well.
