Android One handset revealed with dual cameras

"In India Android One devices were initially available online, this affected its sales as these devices were targeted at a large segment of the population unlikely to have access to the internet", Parv Sharma, analyst at Counterpoint Research, told Hindustan Times. As part of the launch offer, Airtel users will get 200 GB data extra on the Mi A1. The phone might also release in the United States later.

Several Android phones have launched in the interim, and several in the recent past have had mid-range specifications. The stock Android experience will come along with timely security updates, faster boot up speed, and picture in picture feature and more.

There's still an audience, and a sizeable one that would still take Android Nougat over Marshmallow and it would want it as quickly as possible. As per the report, Google revealed that Android One now stands for Simple (for an uncluttered, non-bloatware interface), Smart (optimised for Google Assistant and other Google services), Secure (protected by Google Play Protect), and Fresh (promised updates).

That skepticism is sort of obvious considering that the A1, apart from flaunting a bold Android One branding on the rear and stock software, benefits from nada else.

Android One is Google's program designed to partner with smartphone manufacturers across the world to create "high-quality" but "low-cost" Android smartphones. It is launched in India with a price tag of Rs. 14,999.

Xiaomi surely is in love with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC because it is the company's third smartphone in the Indian market to use the same chip. The phone offers 1080 pixels of recording option. The TENAA listing confirms that the Xiaomi MCT3B comes with 5-inch HD (1280x720p) display on the front. And I have to say, Xiaomi pulled all the stops there.

He also taunted the BJP about its "arrogance" over having a majority in the Lok Sabha. "We neither asked for anything, nor did we expect anything", Raut said.

When Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 4 in India in January, the phone shipped with Android Marshmallow (based MIUI 8). It resembles the specifications of the Mi 5X. The main camera has phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom, and dual-LED flash. How does that work? One of the cameras has a 12MP 1.25-micron pixel sensor with wide angle lens and f/2.2 aperture.

Xiaomi's phone brings with it a 12-Megapixel + 12-Megapixel dual camera setup at the back. But if it sells well, the Mi A1 could become a model for other OEMs, and it could also show more customers the benefits of having a bloat-free device with proper updates.

Dual camerasThe Mi A1 comes with a dual camera setup on the rear - 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel - where one lens is wide-angle while the other is telephoto (or zoom lens). It is up to the software to leverage the power of the hardware and make something useful out of it and that is what Google has done in the Mi A1.

AliExpress now lists the Xiaomi Mi A1 between £194.65 and £221.12. Android One is an attempt by Google to get smartphones in the hands of billions of people that can now only access feature phones. The Xiaomi MCT3B is powered by a battery of 3,000 mAh capacity.

Both Moto G5s Plus and LG Q6 run Android 7.1, but when it comes to pure Android experience, the former comes closest.
