The Xiaomi Mi A3 was officially unveiled in July, launched first in Spain, before the Ukraine launching, Malaysia, and in India a few weeks ago. The smartphone has now made its way to Nigeria albeit with little or no fanfare at all.
The Mi A3 is not the first Android One smartphone in the country, the Infinix Hot 2 gets that title. Even before Xiaomi‘s re-entry into Nigeria this year, other Xiaomi’s Android One phones (Mi A1, Mi A2 Lite, and Mi A2) have been sold by third-party retailers and even major online stores. So Android One fans will surely be excited that the 3rd-gen Android One smartphone is available in the country.

The Mi A3 is available in two configurations – there is a 4GB RAM + 64GB version and a 4GB RAM + 128GB version. Storage can be expanded via a MicroSD card slot (256GB max.).
