iaomi has been silent for a long time as far as its Mi A series is concerned. The company launched several Redmi and Mi phones but didn’t utter a single word about the Mi A series. But now, no more. On Wednesday, Xiaomi launched the Mi A2 successor aka the Mi A3 in Spain. Yes the Mi A3 isn’t launched in India yet but it will come to the country like Mi A2 and Mi A1 hit the country last year and the year before. Compared to the Mi A1 the Mi A2 was much improved and now that Xiaomi has moved on from Mi A2 to Mi A3, we say the same. The Mi A3 is clearly a much-upgraded version of the Mi A2 that launched in India last year.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 looks better than the Mi A2 and also comes with much better specs sheet when compared to the predecessor device. The best thing about the Mi A3 similar to the Mi A1 and the Mi A2 is its software. Like all Mi A series smartphones yet this one – Mi A3 – also runs on Google’s Android One program. This means the Mi A3 yet again like the Mi A1 and the Mi A2 doesn’t have annoying Ads. Going beyond the clean software, Mi A3 also offers a good gradient design, triple cameras, big battery and Snapdragon processor.
To recall, the Xiaomi Mi A2 was appreciated a lot for its exceptional cameras. The question is users love Mi A3 as much as they loved the Mi A2? That only time will tell.
