Earlier this week, Xiaomi made the headlines for being rumored to be working with Google’s Android-One program. The main objective of the two companies was to produce another one of the Android One-branded smartphones. While the information still hasn’t received any official confirmation as yet; the rumored device recently made an appearance on Xiaomi’s Official Website for a brief period, reports Android Headlines.

As pointed by the report, the handset was previously speculated to feature specifications similar to that of the recently-launched Xiaomi Mi 5X. The report described the device as being called ‘Xiaomi A1’ within the company officials.

Now the smartphone appears to have gained more value after it showed up on the company’s official website. What’s even more interesting is that the device was taken down almost immediately. This has led many to believe that it must be an accidental leak. Up till now, it has been speculated that the ‘Xiaomi A1’ is going to feature top-notch specs, and a hefty price-tag too.

Specs and features of the phone

The device will probably feature a 5.5-inch full HD display, with being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 system-on-chip. On the storage front, the device will offer a decent 4GB of RAM along with 32GB of internal storage. The smartphone is further expected to house a 3,080mAh battery and will probably run on the yet-to-be-announced Android O Software Update. The device is further expected to sport a dual rear camera setup with two 12-megapixel sensors on the back along with an 8-megapixel front shooter as well.

Unfortunately, Xiaomi still hasn’t acknowledged the making of any such smartphone as yet.

Android O release date

As far as Android O is concerned, Google is expected to announce the same today. The official naming ceremony is speculated to be held today, and it appears as the software update may also be rolled out at the same time. However, only Google-branded smartphones including Pixel and Nexus devices will probably receive the update first. Following which, other non-Google branded smartphones including Samsung’s and Nokia’s flagship offerings will proceed forward to gain the update. In fact, even Sony went on to list out a number of its smartphones that will be receiving the update shortly. Added information regarding the same will appear once the announcement is made by Google today.
