From Mi A1 to Mi A2: The Things That Have Changed.

Mi A1 was launched in India in September 2017 with a 16:9 display (5.5 inches Full HD), decent dual rear camera, portrait shots, type C charging, Snapdragon 625 along with 3040 mAh battery. After 10 months, in July 2018, around 10 months after the  Mi A1 launch, MI A2 finally landed with the major improvements in camera, bezel-less display 18:9 aspect ratio (5.84 inches Full HD Plus), a much powerful processor(Snapdragon 660), no 3.5 mm headphone jack and a bigger battery (4000 mAh). The only thing that remains the same in the Android One (Stock Android), the basis on which MI Ax series differentiates itself from the Redmi Note series. 

There have been rumors that Xiaomi Mi A3 would be a 5G smartphone. We would like to clarify that it is highly unlikely that you will see a 5G Mi A3 because 5G chipsets are not in production yet. There might be a 5G Mi A4 or A5, but we need to wait at least 2 years for that.

The next leap of the notch display in the Smartphone Industry after the bezel-less display was shown a lot of the love by the users is yet to hit the Xiaomi phones. Redmi 6 Pro is expected to be the first phone from Xiaomi to feature a notch display. As Note 5 Pro was a hit for people looking for the best phone under 15000. Mi A2 is the next hit for users looking to spend between 15k to 20k for their best phone.

Mi A3 Specifications

Let us check the specifications of the Mi A3.

Check below the things that change between the MI A2 and the Mi A3

 

From Mi A2 to Mi A3: The things that will change

The first big change will be the display where we would witness a bigger 5.99-inch notch type display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The notch display has been in fashion now and is surely what Xiaomi will focus. With a beautiful display, the build will be of metal. Though the looks and build matter a lot, what matters equivalently or rather more is the Processor and camera of the Mi A3. On the processor side, Xiaomi will debut with the recently launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 7XX series processor (the Snapdragon 710) which scores a massive 1,73,000 on the Antutu Benchmark. 

The camera is expected to further improve with a lot of AI capabilities and improvisation in the beautify mode. We expect MI A3 to feature 16MP + 20MP Dual rear camera with the aperture to further go down at f/1.7 compared to the 12MP  + 20 MP sensor with f/1.75 seen on the MI A2. This rear camera setup would enable Mi A3 to click the best images even in the low light without any noise.  Coming to the front camera of Mi A3, we expect a 24MP sensor with the reduction in the aperture to f/1.7 compared to the f/1.75 20MP sensor.

We expect Mi A3 to enter into the market with Snapdragon 710.

With the extreme powerful performance of the Snapdragon 710, the performance will be super smooth and the gaming experience will also improve with no lag or even minor frame drops. The application with load faster and multitasking experience will improve.

Snapdragon 7xx series is also more energy efficient, hence the battery would remain the same at 4000 mAh as seen on Mi A2, which would also help regulate the thickness and weight of the phone. While the good news is that the Mi A3 would feature fast charging with a fast charger bundled in the box. The 3.5 mm headphone jack was removed on the Mi A2, and Mi A3 will also hold only the USB Type C with no headphone jack. 

The Android One tag would obviously remain intact with Android P pre-installed and promised updates to Android Q and Android U. 

More About the Snapdragon 710 - MI A3

Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform MI A3

Snapdragon 710 is the recently launched mobile platform processor from Qualcomm and holds the maximum priority to be seen in the Mi A3. Qualcomm explains this 710 as a platform that brings in premium features for the new tier of smartphones and is very well designed to support next-generation artificial intelligence(AI) technology along with superior performance.  

It has support for 4K HDR video playback capability and has Adreno 616 GPU that renders graphics 35% faster and has 62 times more display colours. The Snapdragon 710 is also powerful as it supports the display with up to QHD+ (2K) resolution. Overall it has 15% fast app launch, up to 25% faster web browsing and consumes up to 40% less power while gaming when compared to the Snapdragon 660 which is seen in the MI A2.

This snapdragon 7XX uplifts itself well above the 6xx series of Qualcomm and sets the tone for the next generation smartphone. 

What else we can expect from Mi A3

There are a few additional things that can be expected from the Mi A3. Though these expectations seem far-fetched, it all depends on the market trend at the time of launch of Mi A3 and what other companies in the similar price range of 15-20k are offering. 

Honor has been focussing on the looks and camera performance of the phone while giving the overall performance a little less importance. For Xiaomi, it has all been a game for performance and decent looks with the best camera. The few things we can expect from the Mi A3 launch in India are.

 

 

Mi A3 Price In India

After a huge success of MI phones in the last 2 years with the success wave riding on Redmi Note 4 to Mi A1 to Redmi Note 5 Pro and now to the MI A2. The primary reason of success of Mi Phones has been competitive pricing with the best specification. For MI A3, we expect the same and that Xiaomi would keep the pricing very competitive.

4 GB - 64 GB  17999

Mi A3 Launch Date in India

Xiaomi has seen huge success with the MI Ax series as the Android One Platform and the Note 4/5 Pro platforms. With Mi A2 in town at the perfect time when the demand has saturated for Redmi Note 5 Pro, Xiaomi again looks itself to be the king of flash sales. Redmi 4/5 and the Redmi Y1/Y2 have decently attracted the audience but only a minor percentage when compared to the Hotshot Note Platform. Mi A1 was a Flipkart exclusive device and Mi A2 is Amazon exclusive smartphone. Mi A3 might be a Flipkart exclusive smartphone next year.

With the ongoing trend of the Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 6 and Note 6 Pro are expected to be launched by December 2018 to January 2019, Which would be followed by the much-awaited Mi A3. Given this trend, Mi A3 is expected to launch in India by May 2019.
