Xiaomi Mi A3 Full Specification, Price, and Release Date

The Xiaomi Mi A3 has been announced, but the phone is actually not what we are hoping it would be. It is based on the Mi CC9e with absolutely no upgrades. This simply means the Android One device has a 6.1 inch OLED screen with 720 x 1560 pixel resolution. This is quite a downgrade from the 1080p screens of the Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite.

Xiaomi Mi A3 Features

The one major upgrade on the Xiaomi Mi A3 is the camera. It features a 48MP main shooter on the rear, with a reasonable bright f/1.78 aperture. It is followed by the 8MP wide-angle camera, and finally the 2MP depth sensor. The rear camera can record 2160p video at 30fps or 1080p at up to 120fps. Then there’s the selfie camera inside the notch, which has a 32MP (it shoots 1080p/30 video).

Another upgrade the Mi A2 is the battery – 4030mAh, up from 3000mAh. Charging speeds up to 18W are supported, but you will have to provide your own charger as there is only a 10W power brick in the box.
