Vatsal Impex Pvt Ltd., the authorized distributors of Xiaomi phones in Nepal has slashed the price of Xiaomi Mi A1 in Nepal. The 32GB variant of the device will now go on sale for Rs. 23,999 — 3,000 off from its original price of Rs. 26,999.
Update: The 32GB variant of Xiaomi Mi A1 is now available for Rs. 22,999 in Nepal.
The Mi A1, being a popular mid-ranger among the users in Nepal boasts commendable specs, at least at this price range. To outline the specifications, the handset sports a 5.5-inch Full-HD display with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Inside, the Snapdragon 625 does the processing task, while the 4GB of ample RAM cuts in for a smooth multitasking.
Back then, the Mi A1 was one of the few mid-range smartphones which had a dual-camera. And the images produced by the dual lens can be still considered as one of the best in this range. At the rear, the phone shines a 12MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture, while the second one is a telephoto lens with f/2.6 and 2x optical zoom. The lens supports PDAF, whereas the dual-tone LED flashlights is capable enough to brighten your images. Selfie though is taken care by an average 5MP front camera.
Being an Android One phone, Xiaomi’s bloaty MIUI is absent from the phone. It’s replaced by a stock Android 8.0 Oreo. This ensures that anyone using the phone will get the latest and greatest from Google at least for 2 years. The 3,080mAh battery is also decent enough to power the phone for a day.
The Xiaomi Mi A1 is still a decent phone. Although it lacks some trendy features like a FullView display as seen on Redmi 5 Plus, the stock Android is still a favorite for some of the hardcore Android users and is irreplaceable. TL;DR, the Mi A1 is great and it now comes cheap.
