Xiaomi Mi A3: latest leaks about Xiaomi’s new Android One smartphone

ByLinky Johnson 2019-04-22 3018

It was on July 24, 2018, that Xiaomi introduced us to the current generation of smartphones launched under the Android One program. However, the technology will already be working on at least two new equipment, both with the fingerprint reader already embedded in your screen. The Xiaomi Mi A3 and A3 Lite.

Although it is manifestly early to be sure, there is already solid evidence of its existence.

Firstly, the new smartphones with Android One would have a 32 MP front camera resolution. In addition, both Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite would present a fingerprint reader embedded under the screen. In turn, this would necessarily have to be an OLED panel, to be possible.

What to expect from Xiaomi Mi A3 with Android One?

In good truth and according to the account of the XDA Developers portal, we can have up to three new smartphones to integrate this line. However, the third element would be destined only for the Chinese market, using also the interface of Xiaomi itself, MIUI. A modus operandi we've seen in years past.

So it was thanks to this immense community of programmers that we discovered the new Xiaomi Mi A3, as well as the Xiaomi Mi A3 Lite. As far as it is concerned, the last element will be the direct successor to the Mi 6X, the variant that is intended for the Christmas market and not for global markets.

Then, it is important to emphasize that the discovery of smartphones was made by the frown member. Incidentally, it was by his wrist that the names of Pyxys code, Bamboo_sprout, and finally the cosmos_sprout were discovered. The last two will be the Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite, not necessarily in that order, but both with the software provided by the Android One program.

"_Sprout", the Herald of Android One?

It is precisely about this suffix "sprout" that we are depositing our hopes. We recall that so far all smartphones that eventually used Android One software. Incidentally, even Xiaomi's shape, recalling here the Motorola One, the "Deen_sprout". Therefore, we do not have the slightest reason to doubt that and these are the code names of the next generation Xiaomi Mi A3.

The XDA Portal report also discusses the type of fingerprint reader used. Firstly, it is not necessary to have a state-of-the-art SoC such as Snapdragon 855 to support a "fod" or fingerprint on display, the term used by the industry. In addition, not everyone should use an ultrasonic reader, as this implies the use of an OLED display. Something that naturally brings more costs.

Finally, it also summarizes the first conclusions allusive to the 32 MP front camera. With both Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite having one of these cameras, you would use a procedure nicknamed "Pixel binning" here. In practice, aggregating the information of four individual cells (pixel) into one. In other words, a 4 in 1 that gives us a final image with 8 MP resolution.

This procedure is applied in order to reduce the digital noise in the images. Something that also translates into better results with little illumination. Therefore, we have a solution to improve the quality of our selfies or self-etracts.

It is the first credible clue of the Xiaomi Mi A3

Although the source is reliable, this is the first instance we have heard about Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite. Thus, we consider this new report as very probable, but existing still much to discover. Incidentally, we have no clue about the SoC used or processor.

At this moment we contemplate the hypothesis of Xiaomi keeping the Snapdragon 660 currently used, at least on one of the models. Alternatively, you can use a more powerful and recent option like Snapdragon 675, a new SoC with more promising specifications.

Now we have to wait for new developments.
