The Xiaomi Mi A1 has made its trip to Europe, with several countries having the Android One phone on sale, albeit with price tags higher than what one would otherwise get online.

The Pixels may have launched to an encore and the sound of trumpets but Xiaomi's Mi A1 looks to be the closest thing to the Google flagships in the mid-range segment, and one that wouldn't cost an arm, either. 

The Mi A1 launched about a month ago but was only available to the Asian market. All of that is set to change now, though, with the mid-ranger finally making its way to Europe, albeit with significantly higher price tags. 

The Mi A1, being an Android One device, comes with stock Google software—much like the Pixels—and a host of impressive specifications for its price point. It features a 5.5-inch FHD display, dual rear cameras, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, Snapdragon 625, IR blaster, and a 3080 mAh battery. It was launched on Android 7.1.2 Nougat but is slated to receive Oreo before the end of the year, and will get the update to Android P.

Here are the prices of the Mi A1 in various European countries:


Most of these are significantly higher than the prices you'd get buying it from online resellers. We're not sure how that affects after-sales support, though, so you'd do well to take that into consideration.
