  • Extends popular Android One lineup with world’s first Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 phone

Xiaomi, global technology leader, announced Mi A3, the latest smartphone in their lineup of Android One-powered phones with the world’s highest resolution camera setup. It succeeds Mi A2, world’s number one Android One smartphone previously. 

Mi A3 marks a shift in the design of the Mi A series. It brings a new design while retaining the functional aspects which made Mi A2 one of the best phones in the segment. Starting at 37,999 LKR, it features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, a Super AMOLED display, a massive 4030mAh battery, 48MP triple camera setup and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. Like every Mi A series smartphone, Mi A3 is also powered by Google’s Android One project and runs Android 9 Pie out of the box.  

Xiaomi India General Manager – Sri Lanka Vidya Sagar said: “With the launch of Mi A3, we are excited to offer our Mi Fans yet another Android One phone with a number of incredible features. Among its several innovative offerings, Mi A3 has triple cameras on the rear featuring a 48MP IMX586 sensor, and also offers a beautiful design that facilitates one-handed usage. We are positive that our Mi Fans and users in Sri Lanka will make the most of the new Mi A3 with a wonderful experience in store for them.”

“We are thrilled to strengthen our partnership with Xiaomi to add another great device to the Android One portfolio this year,” said Google Director of Partner Programs Jon Gold. “The all-new Mi A3 will deliver a software experience that is up-to-date and easy to use, with built-in malware protection and regular security updates that keep users safe,” he added.

Flagship-level 48MP AI Triple camera setup

Every Mi A series device has offered a stellar camera experience, powered by Android One. Mi A3 features Sony’s 48MP IMX586 sensor, coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP depth sensor. The 48MP large half-inch sensor allows maximum details to be captured while retaining the quality of the image. To further enhance the camera experience, Mi A3 brings Xiaomi’s popular Steady Handheld Night Photography mode to the Mi A series for the first time ever. 

Apart from the class leading 48MP camera, Mi A3 also sports a 32MP front camera, enabling the device to have the highest megapixel count for a camera setup in the world. The 32MP camera has a Super Pixel size of 1.6μm allowing crisp and detailed selfies even in low light. 

Contemporary design

Mi A3 embodies a new design language bringing functionality and poise to the A series. It features a glass sandwich design with an ergonomic form factor facilitating one-handed usage. The 15.6cm (6.08) Super AMOLED display offers vivid colours, deeper blacks and increased power efficiency enabling an immersive viewing experience. The 7th generation In-screen fingerprint scanner brings 15% increase in the fingerprint detection area and 30% more accuracy over the previous generation. 

Triple Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protects the front, rear and the camera module of Mi A3. The functionality is complemented by the nano-level holographic pattern which creates a dynamic design effect. Offered in three colours, Kind of Grey, Not just Blue and More than White, Mi A3 features P2i nano-coating to provide protection against accidental spills.

Kryo computing paired with Android One

Taking forward the legacy of offering a perfect blend of performance and power-efficiency, Mi A3 combines the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 mobile platform with Android One. The octa-core chipset is coupled with upto 6GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage enabling incredibly smooth and fast user experience. Mi A3 brings a 4030mAh battery with 18W fast charging with a 10W charger in the box.

It runs on the Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box, bringing features like the Google Assistant, Digital Wellbeing and Adaptive Battery.
