Priced at 14,999 Indian Rupees, which converts to roughly $235, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is the most inexpensive way to get a pure Android experience.

Spec wise, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is a lot more powerful than most Android One phones. It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, while most of its Android One competition run on slower Snapdragon 400-series chips. It also sports two 12-megapixel rear cameras, similar to the ones found on Xiaomi’s flagship Mi 6, which offer 2x optical zoom as well as portrait mode.


But the Xiaomi Mi A1’s most distinctive feature is its software: it runs stock Android, not Xiaomi’s own MIUI layer, and is part of Google’s Android One program.

To that end, the Xiaomi Mi A1 will get Android Oreo by the end of the year, and Xiaomi says it’ll be “one of the first” phones to get Android P-which we haven’t heard in the coming 2018.
