Xiaomi Mi A3 Android One Smartphone Official Images Leaked
Xiaomi first launched the Mi A1 smartphone back in the year 2017. The device was Android One certified, which meant it is guaranteed to receive major software updates for two years and security updates for at least three years. The company then followed up by launching its successors, the Mi A2 and the Mi A2 Lite next year, which refined on its predecessor’s features. Now, images of another handset in the series, allegedly called the Mi A3 have surfaced online, which reveal a different design from what is generally attributed to the lineup.

The Xiaomi Mi A3 will be the more premium version out of the two Android One smartphone reported to be released by the company this year. Freshly leaked images of the smartphone reveal it will have a similar design to the company’s Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e smartphones; that was released earlier this month. The front of the device is dominated by a large display with minimal bezels on the side but a considerable chin on the bottom. To maximise the screen real estate, it has a waterdrop style notch on top of the display which houses the front-facing camera. As it is an Android One certified device, a stock like an interface is visible in at least one of the images of the display.
The right side of the Xiaomi Mi A3 has the volume rockers and the power button; while the left side remains empty save for the SIM card tray. The top of the smartphone has an Infrared (IR) blaster to make it work as a remote for certain electronic devices. It also surprisingly houses a 3.5mm headphone jack, which was omitted from its predecessor last year. Over at the back of the Mi A3, a vertical triple camera set up along with the LED flash is visible. The company logo, along with a different than usual Android One branding is placed on the bottom of the device.
In terms of specifications, the Xiaomi Mi A3 has been reported to feature a 6.0-inch display with a FullHD+ resolution. It is also believed that the handset will feature the seventh generation optical in display fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication. The smartphone is expected to run on the 8nm Snapdragon 730 SoC. The chipset is comprised of an Octa-core CPU and the Adreno 618 GPU. Unfortunately, more details, like the pricing and launch date of the device are not known yet. However, the latest influx of leaks suggests that it, along with its sibling the Mi A3 Lite may see the light of the day soon.
