Xiaomi Mi A1 picks up Android Oreo beta on Android One, adds fast charging
It came as a bit of a surprise earlier this year when Xiaomi announced that it would be joining Google's Android One program with the Mi A1.
Now, a few months later, that device is picking up an Android Oreo beta, and it's finally adding support for fast charging. On paper and in person, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is a pretty stellar device for its price point.
Now, Android Oreo is in beta testing on the Mi A1, and early testers report that it does in fact add support for fast charging (via XDA Developers).
Early testers claim that the device charges its 3,080 mAh battery from 0% to 100% in just over 90 minutes, a nice increase from the previously required 2 or more hours.
