The Mi A1 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage which can be expanded up to 128GB. This smartphone runs on a non-removable Li-Ion 3080 mAh battery with fast charging capabilities.

This is a stock Android which means that Xiaomi is launching this handheld without MIUI 9.  However, the Mi A1 will retain the MIUI camera app. Xiaomi has made mention that this smartphone will get the updated Oreo OS by the end of the year. The Mi A1 will be one of the first phones to get the Android P sometime next year.
