Xiaomi Mi A1 Look
This new phone stands out from it’s old companions even though it would look a bit like them. Yes, we are talking about the well received Redmi phones that are a huge hit in the market. We can say that the Xiaomi Mi A1 is an upgraded version of its predecessors. This Phone will be available in black, gold, and rose gold colors. While the black and gold colors are already in the market, you will have to wait for a few more weeks in order to check out the rose gold one.
The phone has rounded edges at the corners that will help you hold it better. It boasts a 2.5D Gorilla glass, giving it a high-end look. The sleek 7.3mm side profile makes sure that the phone doesn’t look very bulky. Gone are the days when people struggle to hold thick and bulky phones in their palms. Sleeky is the new style in town! Also, the all metal body makes the phone look premium when compared to other Mi phones. The back side is shiny and smooth, making you feel good when you hold the phone in your hands.
The dual rear cameras and antenna lines may give the new Xiaomi Mi A1 a bit of resemblance to the iPhone7 plus. To avoid heating up of the device, which is pretty dangerous and annoying for the users, dual pyrolytic graphite sheets have been used inside the phone. These sheets can radiate the heat faster and reduce the temperature of the phone by 2 degrees.
There are captive android buttons below the screen that will help you navigate through the phone. There are power buttons and volume buttons right where your thumb can reach them easily.
