Xiaomi today announced Mi A3 an extension to its Android One lineup. Priced under RM 1,000, Mi A3 boasts a 48MP triple camera, in-screen fingerprint sensor, updated design and quite a big battery, making it an ideal daily driver for anyone who appreciates high specs at an accessible price.
Mi A3 sports a triple camera setup on the back with 48MP main lens and a large 1/2” sensor for ultra-high-resolution day photos. Its 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens detects when users are shooting large images and recommends when to switch to ultra-wide-angle mode for a more optimal shot.
On the front, Mi A3 uses a 32MP AI-equipped sensor for its selfie camera which merges four pixels to form large 1.6μm pixels. This allows it to capture more detail in low-light conditions. To add to the Mi A3’s features, it has a palm shutter feature which adds a simple gesture to start a countdown towards the perfect selfie.
Stunning AMOLED display with Improved In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor
The Mi A3 features a 6.088” AMOLED Dot Drop display. And to go along that, it features an improved in-screen fingerprint sensor with a 15% increased fingerprint detection area. Compared to its predecessor, the sensor pixels and size has been doubled, allowing for an increased reliability and a 30% increased unlock success rate in extreme conditions – from dry fingers to strong light and ultra-low temperatures.
Mi A3’s front display and curved back is covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 5, alongside a 3.5mm jack. At least Xiaomi isn’t skimping on their main features, and a 3.5mm headphone jack is still a nice to see in this day and age.
Peak Performance to Keep Up With Your Lifestyle
Mi A3 packs a punch with its massive 4030mAh battery — the Mi A series’ largest power capacity to-date. And when it’s time to recharge, the device offers up to 18W fast charging via USB Type-C.
As one of the very first devices powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon TM 665 Mobile Platform, Mi A3 also boasts smoother performance, faster speed, and improved AI capabilities for those taking advantage of features like AI Beautify and Google Lens.
