Xiaomi Mi A3 India Launch On August 23: Here’s Official Pricing, Complete Specs & Full Details
Mi A3 India launch is supposed to happen on August 23, and the reports hint that it will go on sale by the end of the month. Mi A3 is a rebranded newly-launched Mi CC9 smartphone. It has already been launched in Spain, and it will now launch in India. The Mi A series is based on Google’s Android One program featuring a pure Android ecosystem as any Pixel device.
While some of the specs seem not to be much exciting, there’s a lot more to look into.
Some rumours said that the Indian version may get a few slightly better features, and may vary than the Spanish version, but that isn’t the case.
The current Mi A3 stands to be the rebranded Mi CC9e, and the same handset is coming to India, and yes, sadly with the only-HD+ display (do mind, it’s a Super AMOLED screen). Though, there are some upgrades as a glass body, triple camera with a 48MP main camera and ultra wide cam, larger battery (3,010 to 4,030mAh).
Here’s all you need to know about Mi A3 India launch and pricing.
Mi A3 India Launch On August 23: Mi A3 Launch In India
Xiaomi Mi A3 India launch is happening on August 23, the company’s latest Android One device. It has already been unveiled globally in Spain, but has yet to arrive in India. The recent rumors hint at an India launch on August 23, two weeks from now. The company is yet to officially confirm the details.
The last two Mi A devices, Mi A1 and Mi A2 launched in India in September and August respectively in 2017 and 2018.
The natural progression does show a timeline which works in favour of the rumour. Xiaomi Mi A3 should land in the country this month, and with the device already been launched globally, the August 23 India launch date seems probable.
Mi A3 Official Price: Mi A3 Price In India
The newly launched Xiaomi Mi A3 in Spain starts at €250 again, the previous Mi A2 price. If converted, that would be around INR 17,450. So the Mi A3 India price should be about the same as last year. But interestingly, Mi A2 wasn’t as successful as Mi A1 due to its overpriced models.
While Mi A1 had less competitors in 2017, the success of the predecessor pushed the makers to launch it at a higher price in 2018.
Even after being launched at a starting price of Rs 16,999, the smartphone is now selling at a starting price of as low as Rs 9,999. The company can’t go wrong again with the Mi A3 India pricing.
Already there is very tough competition in the segment, and a wrong choice of the price would throw Mi A3 out of the league. And most importantly, the company has used a HD+ only display on top with a slightly improved processor. Anything over 11,000 or 12,000 rupees could turn out to be a big bummer for Mi A3 in India.
Mi A3 Full Specs: Set For A Grand Entry?
The third generation Mi A smartphone nas a complete glass body covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, an upgrade over the metal from last two generations. The smartphone is very compact given the current set of smartphones available in the market. Mi A3 features a thickness of around 8.5 millimeters.
Thankfully, the company has added back the 3.5 mm mini-jack headphone jack. This time, the company has added an in-display fingerprint sensor under the screen glass.
Mi A3 has a perfect size given the compact screen size and higher screen to body ratio. Coming to design, the smartphone features striking colour combinations on the out with gradient finish.
A big disappointment, rather hard to notice the difference, Mi A3 surisplingly has used a HD+ only display for Mi A3. The screen size does offer a higher screen to body ratio with a thin chin down under. As an add on, the company has used an AMOLED panel whose diagonal corresponds. It’s a notched display in an 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
Mi A3 offers 6.08-inch HD+ AMOLED display offering 530 nits of brightness. The broad daylight visibility is more than okay, offering a greater dynamic range when it comes to viewing.
Mi A3 runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. The chip stands between Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 675. The new chip offers added artificial intelligence capabilities. With Android One to take up the power, the Snapdragon 665 offers some great performance in terms of mid-end games and extensive multitasking.
The new Snapdragon processor is coupled with 4GB of RAM, with storage options to choose from. There’s two options to choose from, a base model with 64GB storage, and a higher-end model with 128 GB of storage.
This time, you can add up to the overall storage. There’s an additional micro SD memory card slot to add up expandable storage.
The biggest USP of Mi A3 is its seamless software. It’s an Android One smartphone running on Android 9.0 Pie with guaranteed Android Q upgrade.
Google will be offering guaranteed upgrades for the next two years since launch.
Pure Android offers a clean operating system layer without any additional customizations.
Mi A3 comes with a three camera system featuring a 48-megapixel main Sony sensor with a focal length of f / 1.79, coupled with secondary an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor and a third 2-megapixel telephoto lens.
Inside the water drop notch, the company has used a 32-megapixel with an f / 2.0 aperture.
The smartphone can take awesome pictures when it comes to daylight photography. The photos in artificial lighting also did above average, and it can capture some cool portraits. The AI capability help the smartphone to join four pixels to form larger ones of 1.6 microns and offer a great low light performance.
The smartphone comes with a Type C USB connector supporting up to 18 watts fast charging. This time the company had added a larger battery, and the capacity has been increased to 4030 mAh. The battery can run up to two days on a single charge.
The use of a HD+ will help to increase the battery life, and with Android One on top, the smartphone will be able to perform well.
