Xiaomi's Mi A1 and Mi A2 product line has become smart phones running Android One with the best sales globally. Today, the Chinese technology giant has launched the successor version of Xiaomi Mi A3 at an affordable price of 279 USD (about 6.5 million VND) in Europe.
A slight improvement in design with rabbit ears screen, 3 camera cluster, but the screen is worse than Mi A2
Xiaomi Mi A3 owns a design with metal frame, aluminum back is replaced with more advanced glass with Corning Gorilla Glass tempered glass material 5. In addition, we will not see the existing fingerprint sensor on this machine. Because, Xiaomi Mi A3 has used fingerprint technology under the screen (FoD), which is usually only found on high-end phones.
Xiaomi Mi A3 will have 3 color versions for you to choose: black, blue and white. These custom colors are very youthful and eye-catching.
Speaking of design, it is impossible not to mention the camera system, Xiaomi also upgraded Mi A3 with 3 vertical camera sets with 48MP main sensor, with the support of the software to combine 4 pixels to one, Mi A3 has can capture 12 megapixel high-definition photos, good noise reduction, vibrant colors. Combined with the main camera is an 8 megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide angle lens of 118 degrees and a 2 megapixel depth sensor. This camera system can record 2160p quality video at 30 frames per second or 1080p at up to 120 frames per second.
The front camera of Mi A3 has 32 megapixel resolution inside the teardrop-shaped rabbit ears in front.
Besides the pluses of Mi A3's design or camera compared to its predecessor, unfortunately the manufacturer cut one of the most important parts of the screen, which is the resolution. So even though the screen of Mi A3 is larger than 6.01 inch with Super AMOLED panels capable of displaying more vibrant colors, but reducing the screen resolution to HD + (1,560 × 720 pixels) is really a minus point. While last year's Mi A2 has a screen up to Full HD +.
The configuration is upgraded even though the price is unchanged
At the same price as the predecessor Mi A2, Xiaomi offers a better processor for Mi A3 Snapdragon 665 by Qualcomm. Certainly this change will help users have a new phone with higher performance. Along with that, Xiaomi Mi A3 also has 4GB of RAM and twice the storage capacity for the base model of 64GB. If you feel that this is not enough, the company also offers a higher storage option of 128GB. Besides, Xiaomi has restored microSD card slot on Mi A3, after users complained about this on Mi A2.
Android One updates quickly
Mi A3 will be the Android One smartphone running Android 9 Pie operating system right from the time of sale, the device will also be able to be upgraded to Android Q in the future. Mi A3 will have a 4,030mAh battery, support for 4G LTE network, Bluetooth 5.0 and built-in Quick Charge 3.0 technology with 18W power output (but the charger attached to the device will only have 10W output via USB-C), jack 3.5mm headset and 2 SIM support. However, the device does not support NFC.
