Xiaomi has been teasing its first-ever dual-camera smartphone for the Indian market. While the name of the upcoming smartphone is yet unknown, it could very well be called the Mi A1. The alleged name of the smartphone has been spotted in the source code of Flipkart’s teaser page. Xiaomi’s launch event is set to kick off at 12:00 PM and the proceedings will be live streamed online.

The source code clearly shows that the smartphone being teased will be called the Mi A1, GSMArena reports. Xiaomi first dropped its hat in dual-camera space earlier this year with the premium Mi 6 smartphone. Later, the company introduced a mid-range Mi 5X with similar camera configuration. Both Mi 6 and Mi 5X come with a pair of 12-megapixel standard and telephoto lenses. If rumors are anything to go by, the Mi A1 could just be the global version of Mi 5X. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One smartphone with dual cameras, bezel-less display leaked
