Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi recently announced that it is starting the Oreo beta program for its Android One smartphone Mi A1.

As confirmed by folks over on Reddit, the Android One variant of the Moto X4 is now being updated to Android 8.0. The Mi A1's highlight is the dual rear camera setup, and there might be some improvements to the camera performance with the Oreo update as well. However, it is important to note that the user tested this using a OnePlus 5T charger and not the bundled charger, which could be the reason for the faster charge time making the discovery questionable.

Along with this, the Oreo update will also enable the apps to load faster and with improved animations. As per the report, the handset went from zero to 100 percent in 92 minutes compared to over two hours of charge time. Both the LG V30 and V30 Plus is backed by a 3,300mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0 and wireless charging.

But Mi A1 users have one more reason to rejoice. While we don't know whether Mi A1's charger supports the quick charge technology, but if it does not then users have to buy a supported charger to take advantage of the quick charge tech.

The company launched the Xiaomi Mi A1 in India at Rs 14,999. The website also reported that that the smartphone "feels better than it was earlier" and will become a better device after the update.

As for the official rollout, Xiaomi is still promising that the update will be ready by the end of 2017, so unless it is delayed, it should be released within this week.
