Mi A3 Asian debut scheduled for July 31 in Malaysia

Mi A3 Asian debut scheduled for July 31 in Malaysia

The successor of Mi A2, this A3 is a pure killer in the mid-range segment.

On the camera front, the smartphone features a triple-camera setup on the rear, which includes a primary 48MP f/1.79 Sony IMX582 sensor, along with an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens secondary sensor, and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor for portrait shots.

The smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 665 SoC and comes in two memory versions - 4GB/64GB priced at €249 ($280) and 4GB/128GB priced at €279 ($315).

However, one major area in which Xiaomi improved over last year's model is the camera. With a retail price of €249 (or Rs19,249), it is almost twice the price of the model it replaces, the Mi A2, which retails for €119 in Spain and Rs 10,800 in India. On the front side, the phone has a waterdrop notch which also houses a 32-megapixel sensor for those crispy and vibrant selfies. The new Xiaomi Mi A3 is similar to its predecessors in terms of it running on the Android OS' stock version and being an Android One phone.

Powerful quake shakes Greek capital of Athens
The Athens Institute says the quake struck at 2:13 p.m. local time (1113 GMT) some 23 kilometres (14.2 miles) north of Athens. In 1999, the area of the epicenter, at the foot of Mount Parnitha, produced a 5.9 magnitude quake that killed 143 people.

Xiaomi has one more device on its Android One lineup, the Mi A3.

While an AMOLED panel is definitely a welcome move from Xiaomi, it's a shame that the Mi A3 has a lower 720p resolution.

It seems that Xiaomi is in a hurry to get the Mi A3 released globally.

The 64GB variant of the Mi A3 smartphone is priced at Rs 19200, while the 128GB storage will cost Rs 21500. It comes with a 10W charger in the box but supports up to 18W. Given that Europe is sticking with the same price tag, it's possible the Mi A3 will carry the same price tag as the Mi A2 when it arrived in Kenya a year ago - Kshs 24,000. On top of that, the phone has a much bigger battery and moves the fingerprint sensor to an in-display type. The CC9e has several variants but the Mi A3 only offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. The device is expected to launch in India next month and there is no information about its confirmed pricing or availability as of now.
