Yesterday, Xiaomi took the wraps off the Mi A3 smartphone for the first time in Spain. The company is reportedly planning to introduce the model for the Asian market starting with Malaysia on July 31. Already, invites have been sent out to the media ahead of the launch event billed to hold in the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur.
The Mi A3 has been confirmed to be a rebadged Mi CC9e which was earlier launched in China. As usual, the phone won’t be launched in China just like its predecessors but other Asian markets including India will likely get the Mi A3 soon. The major highlight on the A3 is no doubt the stock Android OS it runs which some find appealing than the MIUI overlay. But then, Xaomi disappoints by including an HD+ resolution screen on the device.
As a reminder, the device features 6.088-inch HD+ display with an in-display fingerprint sensor, Snapdragon 665 processor, and a large 4030mAh battery. The triple cameras remain the same as the Mi CC9e which includes a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP wide-angle sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. At the front, there is a 32MP selfie sensor. The phone comes in two memory versions – 4GB+64GB priced at €249 ($280) and 4GB+128GB priced at €279 ($315). It’s currently available for pre-orders in Spain and would go on sale on July 24.
