Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One Smartphone Starts Receiving November Security Update


Xiaomi has a wide range of popular MIUI-powered smartphone, but it has only one stock Android-powered phone, and that's the Mi A1.

According to the screenshots shared by XDA, the update is of 1GB in size and comes with the security patch for the month of November. And while it might take some time before all device have been updated to the latest version of Xiaomi's custom skin, it appears that the company might be already gearing up for Android Oreo. The weird thing about this update is that different users are reporting different sizes for the firmware. This is not an Android Oreo update and also there is no word on the features and improvements coming to the device with this update.

Quite unfortunately, the update doesn't bring the Oreo OS, and we are pretty sure that some long list of Mi A1 fans will be greatly disappointed.

To recall, the Xiaomi Mi A1 was launched in India at Rs 14,999 and the smartphone is exclusively available online on Flipkart and Mi.com. The phone runs on Stock Android 7.1.2 Nougat and it comes with Android One programme, hence it gets fast updates.

Xiaomi hasn't provided any ETA for a public beta or a stable roll out either, but given Xioami's track record with Android platform updates, it's safe to assume that we are not going to see a stable release anytime soon. The smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display with the 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass protection. The all metal unibody design smartphone is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.

In terms of optics, the Xiaomi Mi A1 sports a dual 12 MP (26mm, f/2.2; 50mm, f/2.6) with 2x optical zoom and dual tone (Dual LED) flash. There is also a 5MP front facing camera for selfies.
