The Xiaomi Mi A1 was the first phone manufactured by Xiaomi to feature the Android One program. We had previously covered the phone on its launch. When it was first announced, the available colors were Black, Gold, and Rose Gold. However, the rose gold variant had not made its way to the Indian market right then. Now, it seems that the company plans to launch the rose gold variant in this country as well.
Note that the device will be available exclusively on Flipkart starting from tonight at midnight. Also, the device will have an initial price tag of Rs 14,999. Remember that apart from the new paint job, which is rose gold, all of the other features are expected to remain the same. This means that all the details of the Xiaomi Mi A1 will be the same as far as the specs and features are concerned.
This new phone has a unibody metal design that also has rounded edges. The presence of a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display which also has 2.5D curved glass overlaid on top means that the device will be an entry-level one with some very good specs. We especially appreciated the three capacitive navigation buttons which are located at the bottom. In line with recent design trends, there are very thin bezels all around the screen. Some other features like an infrared sensor, a 3.5mm audio port (which many flagship phones lack), plus a fingerprint scanner for better security is also present onboard.
The Xiaomi Mi A1 rose gold variant has for power supply the great octa-core 2GHz Snapdragon 625 SoC. This new SoC will work in tandem with 4GB RAM plus 64GB of internal storage. Due in major part to the microSD card, the onboard storage can be expanded to up to 128GB. Note that an upgrade to the Android Oreo OS, which is the latest version, will happen sometime in early 2018. Stay tuned for more updates.
