Xiaomi Mi A1 was quite the booster for the whole Android One program and paved the way for a fruitful partnership between Xiaomi and Google. The Mi A2 was a significant but controversial upgrade that eventually cemented the Mi A1 as the ultimate deal. And now, the Mi A3 is trying to right all the wrongs and reach for the top once again.
Up on the front, it has a 6.08-inch Super AMOLED display with an HD+ resolution. Xiaomi mentioned that the Mi A3 is one of the few devices in this segment that opts for an AMOLED panel. There is a small dot notch on the top for the front camera. It’s a pretty compact phone from side to side. For biometrics, we get a 7th generation in-display fingerprint scanner.
The Mi A3 flaunts a triple rear camera setup which consists of a 48MP primary sensor with an f/1.79 lens, an 8MP secondary sensor with a 118-degree wide-angle f/1.79 lens, and a 2 MP tertiary sensor for depth sensing. It has a 32MP selfie camera along with an f/2.0 lens. The phone comes with an LED flash, HDR, and panorama. The device can click excellent images even in dim light conditions. The AI-enabled camera is capable of clicking beautiful images and makes sure each selfie comes out perfect.
The Mi A3 is powered by the recently-announced 11nm Snapdragon 665 chipset paired with 4 or 6GB of RAM. The storage has also been upgraded to the UFS 2.1 standard for faster read and write speeds.
The Mi A3 has a powerful 4030 mAh battery and comes with support for fast charging. It has 64GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card slot. Connectivity options on the phone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C, GPS/ A-GPS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Mi A1 was a great hit and the Mi A2 also. This A3 is going to give stock ROM devices a tough competition. Houses a SuperAMOLED display and better cameras on the front and the back. This will have decent speeds and gaming performance. The Poco F1 is still there for gaming and want to spend more than go for K20s.
