Xiaomi Mi A1 global rollout starts

When Xiaomi announced the Mi A1 it promised it will be available in 37 different countries and now the company is starting to make good on that promise. The handset went on sale in India today but the number of available units is allegedly going to be quite low.

The phone has only one configuration at the moment – 4GB+64GB and it costs 14,999 INR (195) – which is down from the announced price of 15,999 INR.

You can pre-order the Mi A1 through Xiaomi’s website, Flipkart and a few local retailers like Sangeetha, Poorvika, Big C, LOT, UniverCell, E-Zone and Croma.

Flipkart has the phone as Coming Soon and lists a sale date of September 19 at 12AM local time.

The Xiaomi Mi A1 is identical to the Xiaomi Mi 5X only instead of MIUI 9 it uses stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat. You could just get a Mi 5X and install stock Android on it too.
