In July 2017, Xiaomi had launched the Xiaomi Mi 5X exclusively in China. The very same smartphone was introduced as Mi A1, the first Android One phone from the company. The Mi A1 Android One smartphone did not feature MIUI skin it was designed to deliver stock Android experience. The Xiaomi Mi 6X smartphone was introduced in April this year in China. Since then, the rumor mill has been speculating that the company may debut its Android One version as Mi A2 for global audience. Xiaomi has now begun teasing on its next global launch event through its Twitter and Facebook accounts. It appears that the company may debut the Xiaomi Mi A2 smartphone through the upcoming event.
