The newly launched Xiaomi Mi A1 special Red edition will go on sale starting today. Besides the red color variant, the device will also be available in other color variants, including Black, Gold, and Rose Gold, besides the new Red variant. The new Xiaomi Mi A1 special red edition was made available in the Indian market just two days ago. Now that it has gone on sale, we believe that the company is betting big on this special edition.
The device goes on sale on e-commerce giant Flipkart and its own mi.com at a special discounted price of Rs 12,999. This is a part of its No. 1 Mi Fan Sale that will begin on December 20 and will end on December 21. The device will also be made available on all the Mi Home stores, besides the Mi Preferred Partner stores, as well as its own retail partner stores.
The red color apart, there is no difference between this variant and the standard Xiaomi Mi A1 devices which recently received the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Before this new sale, the same device had also received a permanent price cut of Rs 1000. The last time the Xiaomi Mi A1 had gone on sale in India, it had sone so also via Flipkart, as it is this time around. Back then, it had been the Rose Gold color variant.
This phone has some special properties as well. For one, it is Xiaomi’s first Android One smartphone, which has been developed and manufactured in partnership with Google. The phone also boasts of Google Assistant and will come also with the Google Photos app which offers free and unlimited high-quality storage. This essentially also means that once a photo has been clicked through the Mi camera app, it will then be saved automatically on the Google Photos index and that too in high quality.
