Perhaps the more interesting aspect of the smartphone is that it will pack a 4,400mAh battery, 256GB internal storage, and will arrive with Android 8.0 Oreo.
Renowned Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi is all set to unveil the Mi 5X in India on September 5. While the initiative has fizzled out in countries like India, with no major manufacturer having launched a new Android One smartphone in quite a while, companies like Japan's Sharp and Turkey's General Mobile have still been releasing such devices.
To recap, a recent rumor claimed that Xiaomi and Google were working together on an Android One handset called the Mi A1 which would be based on the dual camera-toting Mi 5X. The device is also expected to come with 3D facial recognition and will sport a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display, and it looks curvy on the edges. We have already come across reports that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7 will be launched with the Snapdragon 845 SoC in the same time frame.
Going by a Facebook video post by the designer, the Mi Mix 2 will nearly be bezel-free, with thin lines on three sides and a slightly bulkier bezel at the bottom. It will certainly obviate one of the biggest complaints with Xiaomi smartphones - the lack of frequent Android version updates. Rumours suggest that this phone will be a revamped Mi 5X running on pure Android.
As it can be seen in the above, the two box packages of the Mi MIX 2 do not appear same. Additional features like OTG support, dual channel WiFi bands and Bluetooth can also be expected in the all new Xiaomi Mi A1. The Chinese smartphone maker revealed in a teaser image on Chinese social networking website, Weibo, that it will be unveiling the Mi Mix successor on September 11. Xiaomi will announce a new smartphone series along with the first phone of that series. Both these factors combined are more than enough proof that the Mi A1 is getting launched on September 5.
