Xiaomi Mi A3 renders reveal three rear cameras and waterdrop notch


Reports about the Mi A3 smartphone have been making rounds since past few months but now, the company has officially teased the arrival of the Mi A3 as well as Mi A3 Lite smartphones. The upcoming Mi A3 will be the successor to last year's Mi A2.

As you would notice from the images above, the Xiaomi Mi A3 has a notched display upfront similar to the CC9, even though the bottom bottom bezels seem a bit bigger than the ones on the CC9. It's noticeably smaller than the notch used on the budget Mi A2 Lite previous year but still large enough to house one front-facing camera which, per the accompanying spec sheet, will offer a 32-megapixel resolution. This time around, though, it'll add a third camera in place of the LED flash and place the latter directly below the setup. Along with the Mi A3, the company is also going to introduce Mi A3 Lite, a lighter version of the phone. The report suggests that Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite would feature Snapdragon 730 SoC and Snapdragon 675 SoC, respectively.

Just like Mi A2 series, the company will launch two smartphones under the new series: Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite. Xiaomi's excellent hardware combined with clean Android One software proved to be a winning combination, and now, we have our first look at its successor - the Xiaomi Mi A3.

"That said, the Mi A3 will sport a 6" FHD+ AMOLED display, have 4GB RAM, and will be offered in 64GB and 128GB storage options. Last week, a Xiaomi phone listed on FCC was speculated as the Xiaomi Mi A3. The devices may also be backed by the same 4,030mAh battery unit. The Mi A3 and A3 Lite are expected to come with an AMOLED display and an in-display fingerprint scanner. For example, the Mi A3 will reportedly be powered by the Snapdragon 665 SoC, while the Mi CC9 draws power from the Snapdragon 710 SoC. But because so very little is known at the moment, the company's true plans remain largely a mystery.
