There is no doubt Xiaomi is one of the best smartphone manufacturers when it comes to a phone with high-end specifications and a very reasonable price. However, there is one area where the company needs to work on. The MIUI 8 comes with lots of bloat ware and is not popular amongst the users. However, we expect things to get better with the release of MIUI 9. Now rumors are suggesting that both Google and Xiaomi are working on Android One Xiaomi device. If this is true, then it is going to be tempting for people as the company is known for packing good processor and RAM under the hood.
A Xiaomi phone was spotted at POSTEL running stock Android. This clearly hints at Android One Xiaomi device. The main idea behind the Android One program was to develop an ecosystem where budget devices could get quick updates. It was highly appreciated, but it failed to gain momentum in countries like India mainly due to poor marketing.
Android Go program will target the budget phones ranging between $50 to $100. Therefore, we can now assume that Android One program is back on track. Now we can see a partnership between the two companies for Android One Xiaomi device. Since Xiaomi is a established and popular smartphone manufacturer therefore it will give a huge boost to the Android One program.
Now if we look at alleged specifications of the device then it looks like a real deal. Android One Xiaomi phone will come with a 5.15 inch full HD display, Snapdragon 625, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage and 5 MP front facing the camera. The main attraction is the main camera which is the same camera setup just like Mi 6. It will be priced something around $250, and it will be the best budget smartphone of the year.
