However, now a new leak tells a completely different story. It will also come with Android Nougat 7.1.1 with MIUI 9 that will also support 3D facial recognition, which has been found on devices like the Galaxy S8 as well for unlocking the phone.
As far as the price is concerned, the base model of the handset offering 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage is expected to be priced at $610 (~3,999 Yuan).
According to GizmoChina, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has reportedly shared a picture of the Mi Mix 2 box package. This phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 625 64-bit octa-core SoC, and it comes with a non-removable 3,080mAh battery, and a dual camera setup on the back. As per the report, the company has already started sending out media invites for the launch of its "Flagship Dual Camera Phone". Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is seen running on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo under the hood. In actual, the Mi 5X lost its sheen due to Xiaomi's plan of introducing the new series. The device sports 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, while it packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. However, apart from that, he didn't share any other info about the Mi Mix 2. The model which will be launched on 11 September will be the successor of Mi Mix that was unveiled past year. While the Krispitech report points to the Xiaomi A1 name for the rumoured Android One smartphone from the Chinese smartphone maker, a more recent report indicates the smartphone will be named the Xiaomi Mi A1 and will sport a full screen display. Most probably, the brand new series by Xiaomi could be an Android One project product. Fortunately for us, that wait won't be too long.
With Xiaomi coming with Android One phone, we can expect Android One to see a boost.
