Xiaomi Mi A3 was recently launched as an extension to its best-in-class Android One lineup. Mi A3 boasts a 48-megapixel triple camera, an in-screen fingerprint sensor, an updated design, and a massive battery.
Xiaomi Mi A3 Features and Specs
Mi A3 sports a triple camera setup on the back with a 48-megapixel main lens and a large 1/2-inch sensor for ultra-high-resolution day photos. Its 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens intelligently detects when users are shooting large images and recommends when to switch to an ultra-wide-angle mode for a more optimal shot.
On the front, Mi A3 uses a 32-megapixel AI-equipped sensor for its selfie camera which merges four pixels to form large 1.6µm pixels and allows it to capture more detail in low-light conditions. Its unique panorama selfie feature lets users capture stunning group images without having to switch to the rear camera, use a selfie stick or cut people out.
Mi A3 has a premium Gorilla Glass 5 back finish and there’s an in-display fingerprint scanner. But at the same time, the six-inch OLED screen has a resolution of 720p and the phone is running on Snapdragon 665 chip and 4GB of RAM.
The Mi A3 runs an almost entirely clean version of Android 9, with a “Mi Community” app used to connect to Xiaomi’s user forums. MIUI offers two types of system navigation – either an iPhone X-like gesture navigation or older Android three-button system – and they’re both superior to Android 9’s much-criticized “pill navigation” system. MIUI also allows you to change app icon aesthetics and apply “dark mode” to ease the stress on your eyes when using the phone at night.
Mi A3 packs a punch with its massive 4030mAh battery — the Mi A series’ largest power capacity to-date. By pairing extended battery life with the efficiencies of Android One, Mi A3 enables a more reliable and extended experience for users on the go. And when it’s time to recharge, the device offers up to 18W fast charging via USB Type-C.
The Mi A3 4GB+128GB variant is priced at P11,990. The sales start on September 9.
