Xiaomi Mi A1 Android Oreo Beta will bring fast charging support next week

Xiaomi Mi A1

Xiaomi Mi A1 has been performing really well and the company is focussing extensively on increasing its sales through permanent price cut and other measures. The latest news around the Mi A1 suggests that it is getting the beta update for Android 8.0 Oreo soon! Some users have been invited to test the beta version of Android Oreo on their Mi A1 units and the rest of the units are expected to receive it soon.

The beta update will bring many interesting additions to the phone like the support for fast charging. The dual rear cameras are also set to receive some optimizations in terms of performance with this update. Other improvements include smoother animations, lesser app load time, redesigned apps like Settings, adaptive icons, Autofill API and Picture-in-Picture!

Mi Mix 2 recently got the Oreo Beta update! Here’s how to install it on your unit.

Coming back to the fast charging, the report by Telecomtalk suggests that the phone will charge from O percent to 100 percent in 92 minutes. It is interesting to note that earlier, the time needed to fully charge the Mi A1 was two hours. However, you must note that the test was done through OnePlus 5T charger and not Mi A1’s original.
