There’s been a lot of buzz around the Xiaomi Mi A3 in the past couple of weeks. However, nothing much is left to our imagination since the phone has been extensively leaked. There’s already a hands-on with the device and now, we have got the Xiaomi Mi A3 in our hands too. So, let’s take a closer look at what the device has to offer.
First, the Xiaomi Mi A3 is an exact replica of the Xiaomi Mi CC9e in terms of design and specs. So it’s clear that Xiaomi is going to sell it in the international markets as a rebranded CC9e model. So you get the same dew drop display on the front with thick bezels at the bottom. The back remains the same as well, with the phone featuring triple cameras on the top left corner and the Xiaomi logo on the bottom left. However, unlike the Mi CC9e, the Mi A3 comes with a bunch of stickers on its right side, including the Android One logo. There’s CE certification as well which confirms that the phone is headed for Europe.
As for the specs, the Mi A3 stays exactly the same as the CC9e. So, yes, the phone will continue to use an HD+ screen which will be a downgrade from the FHD screen on its predecessor. The screen will be a 6.08-inch AMOLED panel and will come with in-screen fingerprint sensor. Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 powers the phone and there’s a large 4030mAh battery as well.
Finally, the triple camera setup remains the same with a 48MP sensor along with an 8MP wide-angle sensor and 2MP depth sensor. Upfront, the phone retains a powerful 32MP selfie shooter. As for the software, the phone gets a stock Android Pie flavor instead of MIUI.
We got the Xiaomi Mi A3 4GB + 64GB model but there should be other variants on the way. It’s interesting to note that Xiaomi takes inspiration from Google’s Pixel lineup in naming the color for the device. The grey color model with us is simply called as ‘Kind Of Grey’. The box includes a silicon case as well.
The Mi A3 will be officially announced in Spain later today. However, the phone is already up for sale on Giztop.
