Xiaomi Mi A1 leaked image
This handset is supposed to launch as the first Xiaomi smartphone with stock Android on board. The details are not available yet, but the leaked images reveal a Galaxy S8-like slim-bezel design.

Thanks to its affordable handsets that usually provide better specs than their direct competitors, Xiaomi managed to become a popular brand in most markets around the world. In the last quarter, the Chinese brand managed to ship 5.5 million Redmi 4A units, this model becoming the most popular handset during the given time frame, right after the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8 devices.

Until now, Xiaomi loaded its handsets with a custom Android skin known as MIUI that some love and others hate. Those who would enjoy a Xiaomi handset with stock Android on board might see this dream coming true in just a few days as Mi A1, the company's first Android One device.

The images that have just been spotted on Weibo reveal an interesting design, and it would not be surprising to see the Mi A1 launch as the most powerful Android One device to date. Some rumors mentioned a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and a dual camera setup, as well as a 5.5-inch full HD bezel-less display.

Xiaomi did not confirm its collaboration with Google for the launch of this device, but the rumors about its arrival mention an accurate date that is very close: September 5.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
