Xiaomi’s bet on Android One started with the Mi A1. This smartphone marked the industry and showed what could be an alternative for many users looking for a model with the base version of the Google system at a very affordable process.
Presented 5 years ago, Xiaomi’s Mi A1 now receives another update and has access to Android 13. It beats many more recent models and brings to this model all the news that Google has been producing.
Mi A1 still not gone
Anyone who remembers the Xiaomi Mi A1 knows that this smartphone has marked the market since its launch. Its main feature, and that most pleased users, was to bring a pure Android experience without any customization or unnecessary apps.
Despite having support from the brand for some time, the truth is that the Xiaomi Mi A1 ended up running out of updates too soon. Android One ended up losing steam and this smartphone ended up being orphaned and without the interest that many expected the brand to maintain.
Android 13 arrives in an update
Now, and 5 years after hitting the market, the Mi A1 can again receive an update, this time to the latest version of the Google system. We are talking about Android 13, which arrives on this smartphone through some custom ROMs.
These are based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and bring the news that Google has developed in the base version of its system. Most of these ROMs also bring Google apps and direct access to the Play Store for this operating system.
Xiaomi and Google created something unique
The installation process of these ROMs is not complicated and they do not present limitations in the present hardware. They bring all the new features and even the latest security updates that Google has prepared for Android 13.
It is curious to see how, after so many years, Xiaomi’s Mi A1 is still a supported smartphone and with updates that can be installed. It is true that they do not come from the brand, but they show how in many cases these devices could continue to receive updates for much longer.
