Xiaomi Mi A1 specs: Snapdragon 625, dual cameras, and stock Android for $230

Xiaomi unveiled the Mi A1 earlier today in New Delhi, and the phone marks a shift in strategy for the manufacturer. While all Xiaomi phones thus far have featured MIUI, the Mi A1 offers stock Android. The phone is the first in a new lineup of Android One devices, with Google looking to aggressively target the budget segment in emerging markets.

There's a lot to like about the phone — you get a Full HD display, Snapdragon 625, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, 3080mAh battery, and Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box with the August security patch. The highlight is the dual 12MP cameras at the back, with Xiaomi offering a similar configuration as the flagship Mi 6. Here's a detailed look at the hardware:
