Xiaomi’s first Android One smartphone, the Mi A1, is receiving an update that bumps the Android monthly security patch level to November. According to several reports, the update has started rolling out for Xiaomi Mi A1 users across different markets.
Some Mi A1 users have shared screenshots on XDA-Developers forum showing the new update notification. The update pop-up confirms that it brings November 2017 security update from Google which improves security and fixes bugs.
The update is also said to improve the stability of the Mi A1 as well as optimise performance. The forum has two different notification screenshots from users where some Mi A1 users are receiving the update with a size of 467MB while some are getting over 1GB size. Unfortunately, the update doesn’t include Oreo update as of now. The Mi A1 is heavily promoted as “created by Xiaomi and powered by Google” and the new update seemingly keeps the device up to the hype.
The Chinese company on Monday unveiled a brand new Rose Gold colour variant of the Mi A1. The new Rose Gold Mi A1 went on sale from Tuesday and was available via Mi.com and Flipkart. It was also made available via Mi Home stores, Mi Preferred Partner stores, and retail partner stores. As before, the Xiaomi Mi A1 has been priced in India at Rs. 14,999. The smartphone was so far available in Black and Gold colours.
