The holiday season is here and everyone is excited. While everybody is busy looking for gifts for their loved ones, Xiaomi has given us one more option to choose from. The company has released a ‘Special Edition Red Mi A1’ in India, and fans are loving it.


This special edition device will be available on mi.com and on Flipkart starting from December 20th, for Rs.13,999, as Xiaomi is also having its #1 Fan Sale. This is the discounted price while the normal price is Rs.15,999. The phone will also be available at all Mi Home stores, Mi Preferred Partner stores, and retail partner stores in India. The sale is also reducing the prices of ‘Redmi Y1’ (Rs.8999) and ‘Redmi 5A’ (Rs.4999).

Xiaomi also expanded the range of colors the device is available in, last month, by adding an option to buy the Rose Gold color. To summarise, now the phone is available in 4 colors which are Black, Rose Gold, Gold, Red.

Xiaomi launched Mi A1 back in September. It was launched under Google’s Android One initiative and has proved to be very successful. The phone is powered by the following specifications:

  • 5.5inch Full HD Display with Gorilla Glass Protection
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB Storage
  • Android Nougat 7.1.2 (Guaranteed update till Android P)
  • 3,080 mAh Battery with Type-C Port
  • Dual Rear Cameras (12mp+12mp)
  • 5mp Front Camera

Considering the specs mentioned above, it is a solid device with great performance. All credit goes to stock Android.

Also, just a few days back, Xiaomi started looking for beta testers for its new Oreo update which it will provide by the end of the year, as promised by the company.

A few weeks back, we also saw renders of Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus both of which launched on 7th December. Looks like Xiaomi wants to become the all-time favorite brand for smartphone users.
