Want a pure Android phone that doesn’t cost as much as a Pixel 2? Android One is seeing a resurgence as Xiaomi joined in with the Mi A1. The phone is perfect for those that like Xiaomi’s value for money hardware but have objections to MIUI.
And now the phone has started appearing in Europe. It’s already on sale in the Netherlands for €260 (shipping 2-4 workdays). It’s available in Greece as well, though it costs €284. Units are available in Poland too for PLN 1,300 (€300).
In Spain, the phones are cheaper - €228 – but they will arrive next week (the 9th or the 10th). In the same time frame, the phone will launch in Hungary for HUF 75,000 (€240) and Russia for RUB 19,000 (€280).
In Bulgaria it will be available on the 12th, for BGN 550 (€280). It’s much cheaper still in Italy - €220 – but will ship on October 15. Then there’s the Czech Republic where shipments start on October 19 for a price of CZK 6,700 (€260).
