Xiaomi today announced the Mi A3, making it the third smartphone under Google’s Android One project. Offering Android stock experience, the Mi A3 improves on the shortcomings of last year’s Mi A2 and brings in some new features.
Mi A3 adopts a new design language that is refreshing to see on a sub-20k phone. The phone has a “glass sandwich” design with curves at the edges for better one-handed use and has a clean look that certainly makes it one of the best looking phone in the price range. The front has a 6.08-inch Super AMOLED display and integrates the fingerprint sensor and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 processor with 4GB or 6GB of RAM.
The phone has a triple camera setup with 48MP IMX586 as the main sensor along with 8MP wide-angle and 2MP depth sensor and has a high-resolution 32MP on the front.
There’s expandable storage to up to 256GB but the built-in UFS storage will come with 64GB or 128GB. Furthermore, USB Type-C still stays with the Mi A series but the battery has been bumped up by the 4030mAh and supports up to 18W of charging speed. Xiaomi, however, bundles a 10W charger.
The Mi A3 will start selling on Amazon, Mi Home and mi.com in three colours – Kind of Grey, Not just Blue and More than White from August 23 for Rs. 12,999 (4GB+64GB) and Rs. 15,999 (6GB+128GB).
