Mi A3 in India
We are expecting the launch of Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite in India very soon. Xiaomi Global Spokesperson Donovan Sung asked the fans about the feature they were looking forward to the most in the next generation of the Mi A series, teasing the imminent arrival of the Android One phones. These phones are going to follow the company’s new Mi CC series that was announced last month. However, we are going to notice few changes in hardware.
- Mi A3 is tipped to be codenamed bamboo_sprout.
- Mi A3 Lite is tipped to be codenamed cosmos_sprout.
It has been reported by the Tipster Ishan Agarwal and MySmartPrice are in the works, and will launch globally soon. The Xiaomi Mi A3 is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC whereas the Xiaomi Mi A3 Lite will come with a Snapdragon 675. the Mi A series duo are going to be more powerful than the Mi CC series since the Mi CC9 uses a Snapdragon 710 SoC and the Mi CC9e uses a Snapdragon 665 SoC.
The official launch timeline still remains a history but is supposedly coming soon. However, Xiaomi global spokesperson Donovan Sung sent out a tweet asking what they were looking forward to in the next generation of the Mi A series. His tweet reads, “One year ago, we launched our next generation Android One smartphones Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. What’s everyone looking forward to the most in the next generation of the Mi A series?”

This tweet gives us a ray of hope that Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite are going to launch soon in near future. However, there haven’t been any official announcements or teasers yet regarding the same. It is confirmed that the phones will be part of the Android One program.
Last week, a report indicated that a Xiaomi model – M1906F9SH – which closely represents the number sequence of the Mi CC9e passed the FCC and IMDA certification portals. It was revealed by the FCC certification that the model was an Android One handset consisting of a triple camera setup with the primary one being a 48MP sensor. The same model has also been certified at the EEC in Russia. Therefore, all this information reveals that launch of the series is going to happen sooner than we imagine.
Another point that has been in news is that the design of both Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite will largely be similar to the Mi CC9 twins. Thankfully, this could also mean that Xiaomi returns with the headphone jack in this series.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 price in India is expected to be Rs. 15,999. Mi A3 launch is expected to be in August, 2019. The Xiaomi Mi A3 has a 6.3-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution. The display also features Gorilla Glass 5 protection. This variant of the Mi A3 has 4GB of Ram and 64GB storage. The smartphone has a 48MP + 5MP dual-camera at the back and a16MP camera at the front. The Mi A3 has a 4000mAh battery and supports 18W fast charge.
It comes with Stock Android OS since it is an Android One smartphone, as i mentioned earlier and receives all the updates under Google’s guidance. The device also offers a USB Type C port.
Although, it seems that Xiaomi right now has its hands full with its fifth-anniversary sales and the Redmi K20 series smartphones which was launched recently. The company will soon hopefully start promoting the third generation of Mi A series by providing us with some official statements. Stay tuned for futher info regarding these duo Android One smartphones.
