Following the teasers that Xiaomi has released for the past few days, the company earlier today has officially unveiled its third-generation Android One phone, the Mi A3. However, it is not exactly an all-new device though since it seems that the phone is a rebranded (or at least based on) Mi CC9e that Xiaomi has just launched in China a few weeks ago.
In addition to its general design, one of the major factors that give it away as a rebranded Mi CC9e is the fact that the phone comes with a 6.088-inch HD+ AMOLED display. Not only that, the Mi A3 also comes with similar processor which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665.
Similarly, the Mi A3 comes with a triple rear camera setup which includes a 48MP f/1.79 main camera together with an 8MP ultra wide-angle and 2MP depth cameras. There is also a 32MP selfie camera within the phone’s display notch and a 4030mAh battery.
In Spain which is the first market to receive the phone, Mi A3 with 4GB/64GB setup is priced at EU 249 (about RM 1,151) while the variant with 4GB/128GB option goes for EU 279 (about RM 1,290). Since phone price in Europe tends to be much higher, Mi A3 should cost less in our market although we have yet to hear any official news regarding the phone from Xiaomi Malaysia.
