Xiaomi is working on Android One Smartphone, Confirms Xiaomi CEO

Xiaomi is working on Android One Smartphone, Confirms Xiaomi CEO
Back in July 2017, Xiaomi announced the Mi 5X for China and rebrandend it as Mi A1 (Android One) for the global markets, which was made official in September 2017 during an event in India. Both the Smartphones received praise from critics and consumers alike for its software (Stock Android), and camera performance.

In case you don't know, the Mi A1 is a part of Google’s Android One program which runs stock Android and will receive consistent software updates for a longer period than other smartphones by OEMs that are not a part of the Android One program.

Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jen revealed that the company has plans to make more Smartphones powered by Google's Android One. Moreover, they are planning to launch an Android One device under the popular Redmi series.

“Yes, we plan to have more Android One devices. Some of our users in India seem to like stock Android, and we are willing to bring in more devices with Android One including the Redmi series.”

Recently announced Mi 6X is expected to arrive as Mi A1 (2018) in other markets with Android One. Thoughts?

Xiaomi Mi 6X Leaks: Is this the Xiaomi Mi A2 with Android One?
Back in July 2017, Xiaomi announced the Mi 5X for China and rebrandend it as Mi A1 (Android One) for the global markets, which was made official in September 2017 during an event in India.

In case you don't know, the Mi A1 is a part of Google’s Android One program which runs stock Android and will receive consistent software updates for a longer period than other smartphones by OEMs that are not a part of the Android One program.

Today, a weibo user shared what appears to be the back panel and case renders of the Mi 6X (AKA Mi A2), confirming the phone's design. As you can see in the below leaked image, we have vertical dual-cam setup just like the iPhone X.
Confirming the above leak, Slashleaks posted case renders of the Mi 6X which shows edge-to-edge display and confirms the vertical dual-cam setup.
Mi A1 was the replica of Mi 5X, so it is safe to assume that the Mi 6X would be the Mi A2 with Android One. Also the Mi A1 was one of the most successful mid-range smartphone ever, so it makes sense that Xiaomi would want to follow-up last year's Mi A1 with a Mi A2.
