This is the Mi A3, Xiaomi's new pure Android smartphone

Xiaomi Teases the Launch of its Mi A3 Android One Smartphone Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite could feature Snapdragon 730 and 675 respectively

The Chinese smartphone maker is about to introduce the Mi A3 that's powered by Android One.

Some official looking renders and specs of the Xiaomi Mi A3 leaked a while ago spilling the bean on the design and specs of the device, and now, a more convincing leak is here to add substance to existing leaks.

As revealed earlier by reliable leakster, Ishan Agarwal, the upcoming Android One device will be based on the Xiaomi CC9 that was launched in China. There will be a triple camera setup at the back and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top.

On some final notes about the back of the phone, Xiaomi appears to have replaced the aluminum construction used in previous years with a premium glass build.

Instead, the Serb cruised past the Belgian in straight sets and also brushed aside surprise semi-finalist Bautista Agut. This was seen by many as the aperitif for the second semi-final between Federer and Nadal .

Both the Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite codenames as "bamboo_sprout", and "cosmos_sprout" were also spotted by the XDA. That's because a new optical in-display fingerprint sensor has replaced it. The Mi A3 also retains similar colour options that are now offered on the Chinese-market only device. The report suggests that Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite would feature Snapdragon 730 SoC and Snapdragon 675 SoC, respectively.

The Xiaomi Mi A3 will ship with stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box as part of the Android One program but should receive an update to Android 10 Q before the end of this year. Moreover, a Mi A3 Lite is also tipped to be in the pipeline and will debut with watered down specifications alongside the Mi A3.

The Snapdragon 665 inside the Mi A3 will reportedly be paired with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. A 4,000mAh battery with support for USB Type-C fast charge standard will provide the juice.

Just like Mi A2 series, the company will launch two smartphones under the new series: Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite. But because so very little is known at the moment, the company's true plans remain largely a mystery.
