This was confirmed when the Chinese technology company teased the stock Android handset on social media using the same #PhotosWithoutLimits hashtag Xiaomi’s global accounts had used.
Xiaomi Philippines’ Mi A3 launch teaser
The Xiaomi Mi A3 is known as the Mi CC9e in China, but the latter runs MIUI instead of clean and vanilla Android 9.0 Pie. The design and the glass-meets-metal construction are the same. There’s a rounded back and multiple color options, too.
The Mi A3 sports a 6-inch, 720p Super AMOLED screen with an integrated fingerprint scanner and a dewdrop notch at the top. It also gets three rear cameras, with a 48-megapixel main sensor and an 8-megapixel one behind an ultra-wide-angle lens for panoramas and group shots. The selfie camera is 32 megapixels — one of the sharpest you’ll find on a Xiaomi device.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 with 4GB or 6GB RAM and up to 128GB of expandable storage powers the Mi A3, while the battery is 4,030mAh. The phone also supports 18-watt fast wired charging using Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3 standard.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 officially starts at €249, or around P14,468 or $276, in Spain. It should arrive with a cheaper starting price here due to lower taxes and fees. Plus, the Mi 9T, a faster and better-looking alternative to the Mi A3, retails at P15,990 ($301) locally.
