Xiaomi Mi A1’s Android One ROM on Redmi Note 4
Android One arrives unofficially on other Xiaomi devices than the Mi A1 thanks to the magic of porting.
Remember, in early September, Xiaomi officialized his marriage with Google as part of the Android One program. This union ending in the Mi A1 a model of hardware Chinese and the software part provided by the American firm. In the end, no real new smartphone, it was only a Mi 5X reformatted, the two devices sharing the same data sheet (with full compatibility 4G for the Mi A1 ).
Shortly after, it is no surprise that the software part of the Mi A1 was worn without difficulty on the Mi 5X enough to erase a little more the border separating the two terminals. A month later, another developer set to work, making operational the famous Android One ROM on the Redmi Note 4 / 4X .
Since the specs vary, the work has been a bit more complicated, some compatibility concerns are currently underlined: this is for example the case of the fingerprint sensor and the infrared port, while the camera app is not complete in terms of functionality.
