Further, it is also reported that the update adds quick charging support to the smartphone. So, the app load time is improved and the app animations are also a lot better with the update. The Mi A1 is the first device Xiaomi with a stock Android and a promised upgrade.
On Mi A1, the update reportedly delivers faster and smoother performance.
For now, the users in the company's home South Korea are getting the Android 8.0 update, which will be later released with OTA to all regions. Some of the camera features users will get include Beautify 3.0, Portrait Mode, HDR and more. As per the report, post the update, the Mi A1 charges from zero to 100 percent in 92 minutes, as compared to the earlier two hours of charge time. While we don't know whether Mi A1's charger supports the quick charge technology, but if it does not then users have to buy a supported charger to take advantage of the quick charge tech. So, if everything goes smoothly, the Mi A1 users will be getting Oreo treat before the new year.
The Mi A1 earlier this month received a permanent Rs 1,000 price cut in India, making it available at an attractive price of Rs 13,999.
Google and Motorola announced the first Android One smartphone in the United States with the launch of Moto X4.
As for the official rollout, Xiaomi is still promising that the update will be ready by the end of 2017, so unless it is delayed, it should be released within this week.
