Back in September, Xiaomi launched a brand new smartphone running the stock Android OS, rather than its MIUI. Since then, the handset has done a fair job in attracting the consumers in India. Those hoardings where Xiaomi Mi A1 is advertised having unlimited memory for pictures (thanks to Google Photos) are incredible, isn’t it?
Now in the month of November, the brand has thought of releasing the third variant promised during the launch. Yes, the Xiaomi Mi A1 Rose Gold variant which goes on sale this midnight.

There are no changes in the pricing, staying intact at 14,999INR and as you must have got it so far, no changes under the hood.
So, the consumers will now have three color variants to pick from. The Black, Gold, and Rose Gold.

If you’re new to this device, let me recap the specifications for you.
Xiaomi Mi A1 Rose Gold Specs
The handset packs a 5.5-inch display with full HD resolution and full metal body design. It uses the LTS IPS LCD panel underneath having pixel density of 403ppi and 16:9 aspect ratio. Gorilla Glass 3 protection is onboard as well.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 is running the show featuring octa-core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The storage can be expanded up to 128GB and uses the second SIM slot. Yes, the phone can take dual SIM cards.
With all connectivity norms, and other standard features, the device packs a non-removable 3080mAh battery. Fast charging is also onboard along with USB Type-C port. Fingerprint sensor is mounted on the rear which works as fast as it claims.
The real deal of this device is the camera and the stock Android. Currently it’s running on Android 7.1.2 Nougat, but you can expect Android Oreo update any day. Although, it would have been a really good surprise if Xiaomi launched the Mi A1 Rose Gold running Android Oreo.
The dual camera setup features two 12MP sensors with an aperture of f/2.2 and f/2.6. The second lens is telephoto, assisting the device with the optical zoom. The rear setup is assisted with dual LED flash with dual tone lights. The front side has 5MP standard selfie camera.
