The Xiaomi Mi A2 was launched about a year ago, which means it’s time for its successor to show its face. The Xiaomi Mi A3 is set to be the company’s third iteration in its Android One series. New leaked renders show us what this upcoming device will look like.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 has several big design changes from last year. Up front, the device features a small waterdrop notch. The leak shows the device in 3 colors and a very interesting swirly/gradient design. We can also see that there are now three cameras on the back, compared to last year’s two. Another important difference is the lack of a fingerprint scanner on the back. This could point to an in-display scanner or simply different placement.
The specifications of the Xiaomi Mi A3 are still up in the air. Roland Quandt, who shared these images, says he has received contradicting information. The tentative specifications include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC (matching the Xiaomi Mi CC9e), 6-inch AMOLED FHD+ display (matching the 6-inch display of the Mi CC9e, but the FHD+ panel of the CC9), a 48MP camera with two 8MP companions (matching both the CC9 and CC9e), 32MP selfie camera (matching both the CC9 and CC9e), 4GB of RAM (matching the base CC9e model), 64/128GB of internal storage, microSD card slot (matching neither), USB Type-C port, 4,000 mAh battery, a headphone jack, and, of course, Android One on top of Android 9 Pie. Again, take these specs with a grain of salt.
As mentioned at the top, the Mi A2 was announced last July, so it’s likely we will see the Xiaomi Mi A3 sometime soon.
