Xiaomi’s first pure Android OS smartphone is coming to Singapore in October

The Xiaomi A1 smartphone is Xiaomi’s first-ever stock Android OS device, and it will be coming to Singapore soon.

This new device runs on stock Android, a departure from the regular MIUI that Xiaomi offers with their handsets. This particular difference can be attributed to the Android One initiative.

Android One seeks to bring low-cost smartphones to certain territories while providing firmware updates directly from Google. Its first target markets were at South Asian developing nations.

With Xiaomi’s inherent popularity in India from recent years, it made perfect sense that the Chinese smartphone maker collaborates with Google for Android One.

In fact, the A1 will be getting Android 8.0 OS (Oreo) by the end of this year.

Android One phones supposedly offer the same experience as using your regular Android OS devices, without the extravagant price tag found on the Google Pixel handsets.

The program sees Google in charge of finalizing the hardware and software of the device to ensure that it receives timely firmware updates.

Traditionally, phones either wait for their manufacturers to green-light firmware updates after testing for custom UI compatibility (and the process is either slow or non-existent after a few months).

Low-cost phones are usually forgotten whenever a critical update rolls around.  

According to the site linked above, putting Android in control of the specifications will allow Android One phones to receive firmware and security updates for at least two years – ensuring that the device’s software isn’t too out-of-date even as the hardware ages.

The Xiaomi A1 itself is a low-cost smartphone, no doubt, but it also offers a dual rear camera configuration with 12-megapixel sensors, 2x optical zoom with no OIS (optical image stabilization). It uses an aluminum chassis, and it will have the fingerprint sensor on the rear of the device.

Hardware-wise, it offers a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 3.5mm audio port, a USB Type-C connector for charging and file transfers, 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, a microSD card slot, and 3,080mAh.

Xiaomi told us that the Xiaomi A1 would retail at INR 14,999 in India, which is ~S$317.10. Price-wise, this puts the device on par with the Redmi range by Xiaomi – the latest we have in Singapore is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (full review here) that saw a S$259 launch price.

Interestingly, both devices share the same chipset – a power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. At launch, the Xiaomi A1 will be available in colors Black, Gold, and Rose Gold.

Now for the good news: Xiaomi also said that the A1 smartphone would be coming to Singapore in October 2017, via online and offline channels.

The current announcement and launch are for India before the phone goes on to other countries.

Prices and exact availability (colors, time and date) will be announced at a later date.






Will you be interested to purchase one for yourself?
