One of the most exciting features of Xiaomi Mi A1 is its camera. The device gets a dual 12 MP + 12 MP shooter at the back. One of the lenses is a telephoto unit, while the other is a wide-angle lens.

With this setup, the company aims to beat the competition which includes Apple iPhone 7 Plus and the OnePlus 5 with better quality and color reproduction.
