Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Android One-based smartphone named as Xiaomi Mi A1 on September 5. Touted to be the first Android One smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi A1 will ship with a bezel-less display. Talking about the screen, the upcoming handset will be equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD bezel-less display since the phone is identical to that of the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 5X.

A Weibo user with the username @C digital took to the microblogging website and shared the information that a suspicious millet smartphone will be available with a full screen along with three images.

The highlight of Xiaomi Mi A1 is the integration of Android One instead of the traditional MIUI 9 UI platform. Moreover, the handset will be equipped with a Snapdragon 625 processor and dual rear cameras.

Xiaomi Mi A1 will be able t work faster due to the addition of the stock Android platform. Moreover, the phone will be available at a budget price tag. During the launch of Android One, Google had promised that the software updates for the device are guaranteed to be made available immediately after the rollout. However, the growth of Android One doesn’t look promising with the platform failing to reach a mass base.

We still remember a one-page big advertisement in leading newspapers when Android One was initially launched. The platform failed to attract new customers. Xiaomi is currently making a last minute effort to regain the lost glory of Android One. If the company manages to fix the price at a budget tag of under $120, then the Android One will be able to find its space in the competitive mobile segment.

As of this writing, we don’t have any information about the specifications and the price. However, we expect the company to fix the price to suit budget-conscious consumers.
