Android Oreo Beta Update Brings Fast Charging Support to Xiaomi Mi A1.

Xiaomi’s Mi A1 truly impressed us with its stock Android experience, great camera, excellent display and a premium design. But the charging capabilities was that one area that stuck out like a sore thumb.

Mi A1 has a great battery life but when it comes to recharging it, two hours wasn’t really fun. Thankfully, Xiaomi’s got you covered for this.

The company is currently running a closed beta of Android Oreo on the Mi A1, and a unit running on this new software has been discovered to now feature drastically increased charge speed. TelecomTalk reports that charging from 0 to 100% on the Oreo beta took just 92 minutes, but what’s peculiar is that this was accomplished using a OnePlus 5T Dash Charger.

There’s no ETA as to when Oreo will be publically released for the Mi A1, but the fact that a beta is already out in the wild suggests that we won’t have to wait too much longer for it.
