Earlier today, Xiaomi gave us teasers of the upcoming Android One Xiaomi Mi A3 device, suggesting that the launch date isn’t too far from now. The teasers came on the back of reports that the Mi A3 will pose as the global version of the recently launched Mi CC9, but according to German publication WinFuture, the Mi A3 will be a blend between the Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e.
The man behind the latest report, Roland Quandt, has quite an impeccable track record with device leaks. Apparently, he says the Mi A3 will ship with a 6.0-inch 1080p AMOLED display screen with a teardrop notch at the top housing a 32MP selfie camera.
The triple-lens setup on the Mi CC9 also keeps its place on the Mi A3, meaning you’ll get a 48MP + 8MP + 2MP shooter in the top left corner of the back panel. The fingerprint scanner won’t be on the back, instead, Xiaomi will hide it under the display screen.
Under the hood, the Mi A3 will reportedly come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset. If you’ve been following Mi A3 leaks, this is what was reported first, but later quashed away with claims that the Mi A3 will get a Snapdragon 730 chipset.
The RAM stays at 4GB, same as the Mi A2, while storage options will be two – 64GB and 128GB, although the latter is likely to be allied to 6GB RAM, much like the Mi A2. A microSD card slot will be present on this device too alongside a 4000mAh battery, 3.5mm audio jack, USB-C port, and fast battery charging.
To recall, the Mi A2 had a smaller 3000mAh battery and also missed out on the 3.5mm audio jack. To see the latter back and a significant improvement to the former should be refreshing for many fans.
The report also notes that the Mi A3 will be available for purchase in the next few weeks and given Xiaomi is already teasing the device, it seems the launch date is around the corner. Even though details of the Mi A3 Lite remain unknown for now, he says the device is also in the works.
