Xiaomi Mi A3 Key Specs: Android 9 Pie smartphone. Announced July 2019. Features 6-inch display, Snapdragon 665 chipset, 32 MP selfie camera, 48 MP triple rear camera, 4 GB RAM, up to 128 GB internal memory, and a 4000 mAh battery.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 is basically a Xiaomi Mi CC9e running stock Android OS. As an Android One smartphone, it does not include Xiaomi’s custom user interface, MIUI.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 with the Android One label has just been made official in Spain. As every year, it comes with pure Android and middle-class specs.
Thanks to Android One, the smartphone promises a very clean interface and regularly updated. The design of the device had already leaked recently and it’s based on the Mi CC9e.
It has a 6.1-inch OLED screen with 720 x 1,560px resolution. Alongside with the Snapdragon 665 chipset and a 64GB/128GB storage options. And there’s a microSD slot so you can add more storage later.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 features a 48MP main shooter on the back with a reasonably bright f/1.78 aperture without OIS. Alongside with the 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera (118°) and, finally, the 2MP depth sensor. Then there’s the selfie camera inside the notch, which has a 32MP (it shoots 1080p/30 video).
Another upgrade over last year’s model is the battery. Now we have a 4,030mAh, up from 3,000mAh. Charging speed is at 18W like last year. Also, the fingerprint reader has been relocated under the display, following current trends.
