Xiaomi Mi A1 is one of the most hyped smartphones from Xiaomi recently. The device has come to the attention of many people due to the fact that it runs on pure android. This new variant is nothing but a cosmetic upgrade over the older one. Well, like most of the smartphone companies, Xiaomi is too in the race to bring out smartphones in red. Having said that, the red color looks somewhat like the OnePlus’ Lava red.
As mentioned already, the device comes with exactly the same internals. It has the same 5.5-inch Full HD display. Similarly, it packs a combination of dual 12MP cameras at the back (wide- angle and telephoto) and a 5MP selfie camera. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. The smartphone currently run on Android Oreo coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB ROM out of the box.
Along with all that, it has a 3080mAh battery to keeps the lights running. Which again, paired with the SoC delivers on some promising battery life. The smartphone is a part of Google’s Android One, making it one among the handful of other devices. This also makes it the only Xiaomi smartphone with stock android out of the box.
It comes with a few features you don’t see on other mid-range smartphones like the inclusion of a USB C port. Although missing out on an almost bezel-less design was a bit of a disappointment, but not a deal breaker by any means. And with the inclusion of a fourth color option, it just sweetens the deal.
The red variant that we are currently talking about is currently available in Indonesia for around $228. Availability outside the country is yet uncertain, and we will keep an eye out for that. Until then the Xiaomi Mi A1 is available in Nepal in two variants. The 64GB variant that will cost you Rs 30,000 and a new 32GB variant as well for Rs 26,999.
