When Google launched the Android One program, many manufacturers immediately joined it. Xiaomi was one of them. But it decided not to design a new phone for this purpose. Instead, it renamed the Xiaomi Mi 5X to the Xiaomi Mi A1, made it run on pure Android OS, and brought it to the market. The same happened with the second generation of the Xiaomi Mi A2. Now, it’s time for the next-gen model, Xiaomi Mi A3. And many have been thinking the manufacturer will rename the Xiaomi CC9 and make it internationally available for purchase. However, today, mysmartprice got the news that claims this doesn’t correspond to reality.
Xiaomi Mi A2
Mi A3 Specs
The source pointed out that the Xiaomi Mi A3 is codenamed “bamboo_sprout”. It is equipped with the Qualcomm Xiaolong 730 quasi-flagship mobile platform. By the way, the Redmi K20 and Lenovo Z6 are packed with the same chip. As you understand, it will cost like a mid-ranger but provide a performance identical to the high-end smartphones. Moreover, as expected, there is also the Xiaomi Mi A3 Lite. It is codenamed “cosmos_sprout”. But his variant is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 Mobile platform. The latter has appeared on the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Meizu Note 9, and Meizu 16Xs.
Mysmartprice said that the Xiaomi Mi A3 and A3 Lite generally follow the design style of the Xiaomi CC9 and CC9e. The smaller A3 Lite adopts a 6.088-inch display, while the original A3 adopts a 6.39-inch display. The battery capacity is 4030mAh.
These phones have already passed through FCC certification. The latter shows that the Xiaomi Mi A3 and A3 Lite are equipped with a triple-camera. The main lens has a 48MP resolution.
It is worth noting that both new models come with the native Android system pre-installed, and they will be upgraded to Android Q. Agree this is worth looking forward to.
