XDA-Developers has published some information on not one but two Xiaomi-branded Android One smartphones, which should see the light of day in the near future. The above is based on the firmware obtained by @FunkyHuawei and shared exclusively with XDA, examined in particular by the user franztesca, who has found some interesting clues within them.
But XDA has found clues also on a second Android smartphone, called this time daisy_sprout. It is a model based on the same Snapdragon 625 already seen in Mi A1, and will, therefore, be the low-end option between the two new Android One of the company. This leads us to think that it could be part of the Redmi family, as the CEO of Xiaomi had recently suggested, and it could probably be Redmi 2S, which happens to be the same SoC.
More precise details are not there, but good or bad as reported by XDA aligns with the most recent rumors, thus corroborating each other. Regarding the launch date, however, we have no precise clues, and considering that Redmi 2S has not yet been announced, it will probably arrive first the latter and then the Android One counterparts.
