Xiaomi has reportedly discontinued Mi A1 [review] in India ahead of the global product launch event of new Mi 6X in China on April 25. The company had launched Mi A1 as Mi 5X with a pure Android in India last year.
The official site, Mi.com, and exclusive online partner Flipkart are not selling the Android One series phone anymore. 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.
International Business Times India tried contacting Xiaomi spokesperson for comments on Mi A1's discontinuation through email. A reply is awaited.
Many believe that the company will release the rebranded Mi 6X version as the Mi A2 in India.
