“The Mi A3 will be the third instalment of Xiaomi’s stock-Android smartphone”

The Mi A3 smartphone will be unveiled at Xiaomi’s event on August 21st in India. Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain confirmed Mi A3’s launch in India via his official account on Twitter. He tweeted We are launching #48MPAndroidOne on 21st August at 12 noon” and asked the fans which smartphone it could be? Since Mi A3 with a 48-megapixel camera and stock-Android 9 Pie has already been introduced in Spain, it is fairly easy to guess that the handset is about to launch in India. The Mi A3 is the successor of the Mi A2 smartphone and the first in the lineup to come with a dot-notch display, in-display fingerprint scanner, and triple rear camera setup.
