The Mi A3 has been launched for 249 Euros for the base variant and 279 Euros for the larger storage variant. As for the design is concerned, the new Mi A3 adapts to the new 2019 gradient color build on the rear alongside the waterdrop notch display on the front.
Digging into the spec deets, the new Mi A3 comes with a 6.088-inch AMOLED HD+ display, which is the first AMOLED display to feature in Mi ‘A’ series. The display comes with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 that is further protected by the 2.5D curved glass along with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The colorful gradient rear finish is also achieved by glass finish, which is also Gorilla Glass 5 protected. Also, the display features an in-screen fingerprint sensor for authentication.
Under the hood, the Mi A3 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 SoC, which is an octa-core processor built on an 11nm process that comes with Adreno 610 GPU. The Mi A3 is equipped with 4GB of RAM and has either 64GB or 128GB storage options, and further supports expandable storage via microSD for up to 256GB.
For optics, the Mi A3 has a triple rear cameras setup comprising of a 48MP primary sensor backed with an 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor, which is further accompanied by a 2MP depth-sensing camera. The rear cameras are AI-powered and come with a bunch of modes including portrait mode with AI, Scene detection with AI and also has Freehand stable night photography. The video capabilities of these rear cameras include 4K video recording at 30fps and 1080p@60/30fps. The cameras feature slow-motion recording alongside EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation).
On the front, the dewdrop notch has a 32MP AI-powered selfie shooter which features panoramic selfie mode and can record video for up to 1080p at 30fps. The Mi A3 is kept alive by a 4030mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology and can quick charge with 18W adapter via USB Type-C. However, the company packs in only a 10W charger in the retail box.
And, lastly, needless to say, since it is an Android One powered smartphone it ships with Google’s latest Android Pie out-of-the-box, and it would be one of the few early devices that would receive the upcoming Android Q as well. The Mi A3 launched in Spain will be available in Pure White, Azulon and Grayish color variants.
There isn’t any official information from the company about the Indian launch of the Mi A3 yet.
