Xiaomi has unveiled the Mi A3 and some fans are disappointed with some of its features.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 runs the stock Android OS and is based on the Mi CC9e. It comes with a 6.08-inch OLED screen with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a resolution of 720×1,560 pixels. This is quite a downgrade when compared to its predecessor, the Mi A2. Both the Mi A2 and the Mi A2 Lite enjoy 1080p displays.
The Mi A3 is powered by the Snapdragon 665 chipset, not a big improvement over the Snapdragon 660 seen in last year’s model. It comes with a base 4GB RAM.
However, one major area in which Xiaomi improved over last year’s model is the camera. The Xiaomi Mi A3 sports a triple camera setup. This setup features a 48MP main shooter with an f/1.78 aperture, an 8MP ultra wide-angle shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor. The rear camera can record 2160p videos at 30fps or 1080p videos at up to 120fps.
On the front of the device sits a 32MP selfie shooter. This shooter is located in the notch. It shoots 1080p videos at 30fps.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 is powered by a 4,030mAh battery, up from the 3,000mAh seen in last year’s model. It comes with a 10W charger in the box but supports up to 18W.
As is seen in the current trend, the Mi A3 adopts an under-display fingerprint sensor. And, good news, the 3.5mm headphone jack is back.
This sleek device comes in three colour variants – Blue, White, and Gray. The 64GB internal memory version comes with a price tag of 250 Euros (roughly 101,000 Naira) while the 128GB internal storage version will set you back 280 Euros (about 113,000 Naira). We do not yet know when it will be available in Nigeria.
