Xiaomi Mi A3 which was believed to be the global variant of the Mi CC9e is actually a downgraded variant. A hands-on article done by a Malaysian blog Soyacincau shows the Mi A3 has an HD+ screen rather than full HD one. This is, in fact, a downgrade from the previous models which all have 1080p screens including the last year’s Mi A2 Lite. So, it’s hard to believe this fact especially when the predecessors have it.
Well, moving on with the hands-on, the particular device has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage that can be expanded via a hybrid dual SIM slot. The device is 6.08-inch in size and has a waterdrop notch at the top for the selfie camera. The source says the unite was provided by the online store Mobile2Go.
To the top of it, a recently leaked retail box packaging has already confirmed the device is powered by the Snapdragon 665, unlike previous reports of Snapdragon 710. The color of the device spotted in the retail box is similar to the CC9e’s deep gray color variant. On the back, the Mi A3 has triple cameras with one being the 48MP primary sensor, others are 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP depth sensor. It includes a 32MP selfie camera and has a 4030mAH battery with support for 18W fast charging.
Xiaomi might have decided to go with the Snapdragon 665 processor to keep the overall cost of the device low.
The Mi A3 by Xiaomi is expected to go official first in Spain and then in France tomorrow, on July 18th. Well, almost everything is disclosed now and what left is the official meet.
