Analysts are predicting that Google could ship a lot more Android One devices with the new Xiaomi Mi A1 than it did with the previous 18 OEMs.
So, how well did the previous 18 OEMs perform?
According to the report, they managed to sell only a few million Android one device in three years. As a matter of fact, these Android one devices could only reach 20 countries whereas analysts are predicting that Xiaomi could surpass the entire first iteration of Android One sales.
Based on the report, Infinix (They are the only OEM I reckon with on the list) garnered about 7% of the Android One market share with the Infinix Hot 2.
The analysts have attributed the failure of previous entry level Android One devices to the lack of interest from OEMs to push Android One since their devices at that time were better in terms of specs and margin.
However, with the new Android One from Xiaomi, consumers are getting a good bargain with the dual 12MP wide angle and telephoto lens and other impressive specs.
