Android 8.0 Oreo update rolling out to Xiaomi Mi A1

Android O

Xiaomi has pushed the Android Oreo update for the Mi A1 Android One smartphone. Though it was initially launched with an Android One operating system, it was announced that the model will introduce Android Oreo update before the end of 2017. The rollout has made the smartphone model the first Android Oreo updated smartphone in the country to be priced below Rs 15,000. Also, more importantly, you will have to be on version 7.12.19 of Android Nougat to receive 7.12.29 of Android Oreo on your Mi A1. Even at that, the update which is 1107.4MB in size and comes with December's security patch will be rolling out in batches. As this is an Oreo update, it brings along features like Picture-in-Picture Mode, Smart Text Selection and more to the Mi A1. Falling under Google's revamped Android One programme, the Mi A1 got a lot of positive response from the consumers, acknowledged for bringing good hardware with slick software. The update is rolling out over-the-air (OTA) in batches so it may take some time for the update to reach all devices. To recall, Xiaomi earlier this month started testing the Oreo update with a few beta testers, but starting today, all the Mi A1 will receive the update.

"The Mi A1 packs a 5.5" 1920 x 1080 display, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

The smartphone sports Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chip. On the front, the Mi A1 comes with a 5-megapixel camera. Further, the smartphone has 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
