Xiaomi has officially announced the Mi A3 mid-ranger in Spain. As we confirmed earlier in our hands-on article, the Mi A3 is a rebranded Mi CC9e model for the European market. The phone retains every aspect of its CC9e brother, except for the software which is replaced by Android One based on Pie.
Since we already know the specifications of the Xiaomi Mi A3, let’s first take a look at its pricing and availability. Spain is the first market to get this device. The phone will be available in just 4GB RAM variant with two storage options: 64GB and 128GB and will go on sale on July 24. The 4GB + 64GB variant is priced at 249 euros ($279) while the 4GB + 128GB variant will retail for 279 euros ($313). There will be three colors for the Mi A3 in Spain: Black, Blue, and Pure White. What’s interesting is that we have the ‘Kind of Grey’ model with us right now but there’s no mention of a Grey version for the Spanish market. It’s possible that the black version ends up being called ‘Kind of Grey’.
As for the specs, the Mi A3 comes with a modest 6.088-inch HD+ display with an indisplay 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. Up front, you have a 32MP selfie sensor.
The pricing puts the Mi A3 above the Snapdragon 660 powered Redmi Note 7 in the Spanish market. However, it’s HD+ display is sure to disappoint a lot of fans. After all, previous Mi A series mid-rangers have had FHD displays. But Android One and it’s camera setup could be enough to get the attention of European buyers. What are your thoughts?
