Personally, I'm not a fan of pure android. I do not know whether the fact that I like the MIUI overlay is more appealing, or that Xiaomi smartphones with a clean system do not have NFC. I liked going out without a wallet, a comfortable affair. So far, Xiaomi offers three devices with pure android: Mi A1, Mi A2 and weaker Mi A2 Lite. Well, the new model has appeared on the horizon and it will be equipped with NFC!
Xiaomi smartphone with pure Android noticed by XDA Developers and has NFC!
XDA Developerse noticed in the latest code MIUI 10 overlay which is based on the Android P device called orchid_sprout. Previous models of the Mi A series are: tissot_sprout - Mi A1; jasmine_sprout - Mi A2; daisy_sprout - Mi A2 Lite. The word sprout means it is a device certified by Google.
It is not known what the device specification will be. According to the information contained in the code, the new smartphone will have NFC and thus it will be the first device with pure Android from Xiaomi enabling contactless payments.
