Xiaomi Mi A1 was the first Android One smartphone by Xiaomi. It’s been my main phone for nearly a year, and with a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a decent 5.5″ full HD display, I’m pretty satisfied with it, especially I’m getting firmware updates nearly monthly, including security updates and new version of Android.
But an updated model, Xiaomi Mi A2 (Lite) has just been launched, so it should come as no surprise that Mi A1 is getting some discount, and that’s exactly what Banggood has done by offering Xiaomi Mi A1 phone for $159.99 shipped with coupon BGA164BMY.

The phone was launched in September 2017, and if I remember correctly Android One program promises at least 18 months of support, so updates should still come your way until at least March 2019. It’s unclear whether that will mean an Android 9.0 / P update too.
