Xiaomi Mi A1 starts receiving stable version of Android 8.0 Oreo

Xiaomi Mi A1, the first Android One smartphone from the company in partnership with Google, is now getting the stable build of Android 8.0 Oreo.

Xiaomi launched the Mi A1 Android One smartphone in India back in September running stock Android 7.1 (Nougat) in partnership with Google. After beta testing the update earlier this month, Xiaomi has started rolling out stable update for all the users today, just before the year ends, as it had promised at the launch. This will be one of the most affordable Android smartphones to get the Android Oreo update. Xiaomi already said that it will also be one of the first phones to get Android P.

Xiaomi did not release any changelog for the update on the Mi Forum at this point, but a user on the XDA Developers forum uploaded a handful of screenshots showing the update. The Android 8.0 Oreo update weighs in at 1107.4MB in size , and it comes with the security fixes for the month of December. The update is currently being rolled out Over-The-Air (OTA), and will reach users gradually.

Android Oreo 8.0 brings a lot of extra features, including picture-in-picture (PiP) mode, revamped notifications, Google Play protect, a new settings menu, files app, better battery life and performance, smart text selection, adaptive icons, and much more.

The update is 1107.4MB in size and still has Android security update for December, 2017 and not the January update that was available with a recent beta .  You need to be running v7.12.19 (Android N) to get this v7.12.29 (Android O) update, which is rolling out in batches for all the users.

Xiaomi Mi A1, the first Android One smartphone from the company in partnership with Google, is priced at Rs 13,999. It can be purchased from both Flipkart and Mi.com. The Mi A1 is essentially a rebranded version of Mi 5X that was launched in China, though the big difference here is that this is branded as an Android One smartphone without MIUI OS on it. In terms of specifications, the Mi A1 has a 5.5-inch full HD display, a  Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage,  a 12MP + 12MP rear camera setup on the back,  a 5MP front camera , and a 3080 mAh battery on board.

Xiaomi Mi A1 competes against the  Honor 7X, which costs  Rs 12,999. The latter smartphone features an 18:9 aspect ratio display,  attractive design, and great performance at a reasonable price.
