Xiaomi may launch its first Android One smartphone sans MIUI

12

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.
