Xiaomi Mi A3 specifications
The Mi A3 flaunts its glass back which comes in three gradient finishes-- white, grey and blue. The back of the phone curves around the edges and is topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back. It uses a 6-inch AMOLED panel flush with u-shaped notch which gives the screen a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. However, there is a caveat. The screen has a HD+ (1560 x 720 pixels) resolution which is sure a major trade-off, especially if you consider the fact that Mi A2 has a Full HD display. It is also home to an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 610 GPU. This is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options. The phone supports storage expansion via microSD card by upto 256GB. Being a part of Google's Android One program, the A3 runs on stock Android 9.0 Pie.
Mi A3 has a triple camera setup which consists of a primary 48MP sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The rear cameras are capable of recording 4K footage at 30fps and is supported by EIS. On the front, you get a 32MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
The phone is fitted with a 4,030mAh battery and supports 18W fast charging.
