Xiaomi may launch its first Android One smartphone sans MIUI

Google has been pretty constant when it comes to bringing Android One devices to more markets. Even so, these Android One smartphones are not available in too many markets, not to mention that there will not be introduced in well-developed markets where they would compete with Nexus and Pixel phones.

Nevertheless, Google continues to spread Android One love each year and another company helping the search giant doing that could be Xiaomi. The Chinese handset vendor, the fifth largest in China, is expected to launch an Android One smartphone.

The already introduced Xiaomi Mi 5X was recently spotted POSTEL, the Indonesian certifier, but unlike the device that's now selling in China, this one does not feature the proprietary MIUI.

Moreover, the description in the database confirms this version of Xiaomi Mi 5X runs software developed by Google, which could mean one thing: this is indeed an Android One device.

Unfortunately, we don't know when and where Xiaomi's Android One smartphone will be launched, but we hope Google will reveal more details during the Android O's reveal supposedly happening on August 21.

They should build a pixel phone. It will be affordable just like old times.

Ah! MIUI, eh?

An abomination of Android.

Anyhow, It's certainly no coincidence that everyone seems to be jumping in The Stock Android bandwagon.

Nokia did it (The China exclusive 'original' Nokia 6 had a heavy custom theme). Lenovo is going to ditch it's ZenUI as well in favor of stock and Asus has also hinted at heavily de-skinned, almost near stock Android.

Reason?

Android O, what else? It is coming-out to be The Kitkat 2.0!

Android O is sleek, much (MUCH) quicker, support ultra low-end Smartphones (with

Ah yes, it is (or was) Vibe UI.

My bad, mate! I'm not as geeky as I'd have liked!

Funny, I never mistake a Ducati signature Testastretta (Desmo-quatrro) or just "Desmo Valves" if we are being blunt, with BMWs R-Series Boxer Twins or perhaps Yamaha's signature cross-plane crankshaft! Or maybe, Honda's geeky V-Tec!

I'm a gear-head at heart, ya see?

Yes, A RIDER!!!

I got into smartphones only because I got old, lazy and relatively obsolete who couldn't afford a nice Harley or better yet, an Indian Dark Horse with that big inch "Thunder Stroke" motor!

Oh well,

G'Day!

the article did say no miui, so vanilla android will be on the xiaomi android one phone.

on a side note miui is not as bad as some people make it out to be, just give it a try one of the more full featured custom interface

Thanks for passing out before finishing this train wreck of a rant.
Stock android phones don't really sell well so no one is jumping on the bandwagon. The only ones that are are oems that don't sell well under their own skins. Having the majority of options having only stock android would be the death knell of android as only tech geeks care for it.

Some bug with PhoneArena.

I didn't pass out as I wasn't drunk at the time of writing, honest.

Tried to post the same comment twice, but only half of it would show!

So, like an old man, I gave up!

Perhaps if I was younger...
