Xiaomi may launch Google’s next Android One smartphone in India

The Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi appears to be planning new strategy for markets like India. The company is reportedly teaming up with Google in India to launch the company’s next Android One smartphone.
For those unaware, Google launched its Android One phones first time in the year 2014. The aim is to bring pure Android UI and timely updates to budget smartphones in the developing markets. The OS debuted in India later that year with smartphones made by some local manufacturers such as Micromax, Spice and Karbonn. It later expanded to Nepal, Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh and other such countries.
Xiaomi has so far not teamed up with Google for Android One smartphones before. But now things seem to be changing. A report coming from the Krispitech website says that the Xiaomi smartphone with stock Android UI will be taking its cues from the existing Mi 5X smartphone in terms of design. It may be called as the Xiaomi A1 or Xiaomi Tissot. Also speculated is that the device could boast of a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. The document adds the dual-SIM supporting smartphone to boast a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display.
Both Xiaomi and Google, for now, seems focussed in launching a new smartphone in India and unveil Android O. Xiaomi has already given a teaser about its upcoming Redmi Note 5A. Furthermore, Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain has also teased the arrival of “Xiaomi’s first dual-camera phone in India” for next month.
Google, on the other hand, is preparing to finally give some announce name of its Android O OS and give more details of its features. As per the company’s posts on social media websites, it will do the same on August 21, the day of solar eclipse in the US.
