The company has also stopped taking orders for Mi A1 from Mi Partner stores in the country, technology blog 91Mobiles reported citing local managers of Xiaomi affiliated retail chains.

These variants will have 4GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage, 6GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage, and 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage. The Mi A1 is Xiaomi's first Android One phone with a software experience designed by Google.

Well, the next teaser clears both of those - Xiaomi will unveil the Mi 6X (and Mi A2) in the province of Wuhan's capital city of Hubei. It is expected that the company might launch the successor of Mi A1 at an event on April 25. Some rumours also indicate that Xiaomi has discontinued the Mi A1 device in India as the Mi A2 launch will take place in the first week of May 2018.

XDA Developers' analysis further revealed more information regarding Mi 6X which include the 12MP Sony IMX486 and 20MP Sony IMX376 sensors for the phone's rear camera. The smartphone has a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The buzz around the Mi 6X is fairly high, given that fact that the handset will be pitched as a mid-end smartphone. The Mi 6X will succeed the Mi 5X, which made its debut in China previous year.

According to the teaser, the Xiaomi Mi 6X will be available in a blue colour variant with a full metal unibody design and an iPhone X style dual camera setup. The smartphone's firmware files have revealed that it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor which has the clock frequency of 2.2GHz. The phone will also support for 4K video recording @30fps.

For those unaware, the Mi A1 is actually a re-branded Mi 5X, with the only difference being that the former runs stock Android whereas the latter runs MIUI. For selfies, the smartphone will be equipped with 20MP shooter with f/2.2 aperture with dedicated front LED flash. On the exterior design, it's said that the Mi A2 has the same 5.99-inch display with an 18:9 screen-to-body aspect ratio.
