After the great success of Xiaomi’s Mi 6x which is also known as Mi A2 last year, Xiaomi, this year, is planning to launch the successor of these models. The original Mi A2 was launched as the Redmi 6 Pro in India and it is reasonable that Xiaomi would retitle the Mi A3 Lite to the Redmi 7 pro when it will come to India.
On 9 May 2019, Xiaomi has begun to tease a new smartphone with a triple camera setup on the back, which is also going to be soon launching in India with a Snapdragon 700 Series Chip. We are not fully sure but are sure enough to say that this might be the upcoming Mi A3.
On 29 April 2019, India Head of Xiaomi had posted a post on Twitter which revealed that a new Xiaomi device with a Snapdragon 700 series processor is going to be launching soon. We are expecting the processor to be the Snapdragon 730 as it was launched back in 2 months ago. This device is most probably to be the Mi A3, and the good news for the fans is that it is going to be first launched in India.
Mi A3 Release Date
At first, the Xiaomi Mi A3 is going to be launched as the Mi 7x in the Chinese market, and after a month or a couple of weeks and by the mid of Q3 2019, the device is going to see a global release. So, together with the similar lines of Mi A2, it’s approaching successor is also going to be released. On the other hand, if believe some rumors then the Xiaomi MI A3 is going to release after Pocophone Poco F2 launch.
Mi A3 Pricing
Overall, if we talk about the pricing in general, then such devices follow the same pricing schemes seen with its forerunners. Along with the minor improvements, the price may possibly see a 2% hike but generally not more than that.
So, the Xiaomi Mi A3 may possibly be priced at $255 to $300 which is about INR18000 to 20000 in India for the top model and at this price you’re getting a lot of hardware.
It is a decent price range for a newly launched device with 6GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB storage, decent camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 as mainly 2 years of Android Updates at a quicker speed if you want faster updates carried to your phone. And if you want it to be more extended period than you should really look forward to the Xiaomi Mi A3.
Well, if you are already a Mi A2 user, then you must have got the best experience but the Mi A3 is going to bring a lot of new things than the previous one with lots of modern features, better camera and an update to system software and all this will get in a price similar to the previous model.
