Xiaomi's Mi A2 could be about to get an upgrade

Xiaomi's Mi A-series is the only smartphone lineup from the Chinese company that's a part of Google's Android One program and runs the stock Android operating system with minor changes.

Xiaomi recently began teasing the launch of new Android One phones that will join the camera-centric Mi "A" series. The leak also confirms the Mi A3 has a 48MP camera at the back and a 32MP selfie shooter on the front. The report also claims that while the Mi A3 will sport a triple camera setup, the Mi A3 Lite will, very likely, have a dual-cam module.

Gsmarena, via an anonymous tipster, has revealed some live images of the Mi A3 and its retail box which confirm the phone's design and key specs. On the other hand, the lighter model Xiaomi Mi A3 Lite is codenamed "cosmos_sprout" and will come equipped with a Snapdragon 675 chipset, just like Redmi Note 7 Pro. Online speculations suggest that they might be re-branded versions of the CC9 and CC9e smartphones the company launched in China earlier this month, but with pure Android instead of MIUI. Rumor has it the smartphone will be accompanied by a slightly more powerful sibling powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 730 and potentially marketed as the Mi A3 Pro. The latest leak and the US FCC listing mention that the Mi A3 will draw power from the Snapdragon 665.

There is no information available about the launch date of these devices. In terms of design, the Mi A3 will be similar to the Mi CC9 sporting a gradient 3D glass panel and a waterdrop notch. A 4,000mAh battery with support for USB Type-C fast charge standard will provide the juice. The Mi A2 was launched in India in August past year, so we expect its successor to debut sometime next month. Additionally, the Mi A2 had the headphone jack missing which turned out to be a deal-breaker for many, so Xiaomi has brought it back with the Mi A3.
