The Xiaomi Mi A1 Special Edition features a vivid red color
Back in September, we told you all about the Xiaomi Mi A1. As an Android One handset (that's what A1 stands for) this device features stock Android and will be among the first Android phones to receive updates from Google. In fact, before the ball drops in Times Square in a little over two weeks, the phone is supposed to receive Android Oreo. But that's not the big news today.

A Special Edition of the Xiaomi Mi A1 has been introduced by the manufacturer. What makes it so special? Glad you asked. This variant of the phone is wearing a vivid red color. Outside of the new color, nothing about the phone has changed despite the Special Edition moniker. The model is equipped with a 5.5-inch LCD display carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution (FHD). Powering the handset is the Snapdragon 625 chipset which includes an octa-core 2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 506 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. Those seeking additional storage can access the 256GB capacity microSD slot.

The Mi A1 comes with a dual-camera setup in back. Both snappers weigh in at 12MP with one offering a wide angle view, and the other shooting with telephoto capabilities. A 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3080mAh battery, and there is a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. Besides the new Red color, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is available in Black, Gold and Rose Gold.

The Special Edition is available for the moment only in Indonesia, where it is priced at 3.099.000 rupiahs. At current exchange rates, that works out to $228 USD.
