Product Details:

The Mi A3 is basically a modified version of Mi CC9e (from China) running Google’s pure Android instead of MIUI software. The Mi A3 brings back the audio jack, has a new-age CPU, improved cameras, and a reasonably attractive glass body, but Xiaomi has made a controversial move by switching from FHD to HD+ screen, which is surely grabbing headlines for the wrong reasons.

The Xiaomi Mi A3 comes with a refreshed design, which is in line with current design trends. The Xiaomi’s new Android One phone also has the new U-shaped notched screen on the front. The chin at the bottom isn’t quite minimal but that’s fine, especially considering the price.

The Mi A3 offers an AMOLED screen for a very reasonable price, and on the other, the resolution of the screen has been downgraded to HD+. Moreover, since this is an OLED panel and uses a Pentile matrix, the effective resolution is even a tad lower than HD+.


The Mi A3 triple rear camera setup packs a 48MP primary sensor with f/1.78 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera with a 118-degree field-of-view, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the Mi A3 comes with a 32MP snapper. The Mi camera app is ported from the current MIUI software. Apart from regular modes, there is a 48MP mode, Night mode, Manual mode, and a few other options. The Mi A3 camera hardware looks promising, to say the least.

The Mi A2 was a powerful device in its segment and was backed by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660. The MI A3 ships with the more recently announced upgrade to the SD660, the Snapdragon 665. It’s an 11nm process based octa-core chip where 4 Kryo 260 Gold cores clocked at 2.0GHz and the other four Kryo 260 Silver core tuned to run at 1.8GHz.

The Mi A3 in India is offered in 4GB and 6GB RAM and 64GB and 128GB storage options. Now, you can slip in a micro-SD card, but only if you are fine with using just one SIM. The phone draws juice from 4,030mAh battery with USB Type-C charging port and support for 18W fast charging. The charger bundled in the box is rated 10W, though.
