On 17th July 2019, Xiaomi launched its long-awaited Mi A3 smartphone. The mid range device made its debut in Spain and succeeded the Mi A2 which was launched in the year 2018. Previously, it was uncertain if the device would see an Indian launch. Now, a launch date for the same has been revealed, the device will be sold from 23rd August 2019.

Xiaomi Mi A3

Similar to its predecessors, the latest iteration is also Android One certified which means it is guaranteed to receive major software updates for two years and security updates for three years. The Xiaomi Mi A3 is based on the Mi CC9e but unfortunately features no real upgrades. It means that it also sports a 6.01 inch OLED display with a 1560 x 720px resolution; a downgrade from the Mi A2 that featured a 1080p panel. The device is equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 Soc which is paired with 4GB of RAM. Internal storage is offered in two variants including 64GB and 128GB. It also supports memory expansion up too 256GB via a microSD card.

One of the key defining features of the device is undoubtedly its triple rear camera setup. The Xiaomi Mi A3 sports a 48MP primary camera alongside 8MP wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor. The front of the device houses a 32MP camera sensor for clicking selfies. It is capable of recording 4K videos at 30fps with the rear camera. Furthermore, the front camera only supports capturing 1080p videos at 30fps. Slo-Mo recording is also present on the device.

Additionally, Xiaomi’s Mi A3 has another significant upgrade over its predecessor which is the larger 4030mAh battery. The handset is capable of 18W fast charging, however, only a 10W power adapter is bundled in the box and the former must be bought separately. Xiaomi listened to last years criticism and brought back the 3.5mm headphone jack which was absent in the last years Mi A2.
