Mi A3 Might Be The Best Smartphone Under Rs. 2,000 This Year

Xiaomi has taken clues from another successful line to make the Mi A3, so the phone might have everything it needs to be the best smartphone under Rs. 2,000 this year

The Redmi Note 7 Pro has just been out for a short time in India, but it has made a good impression on users and experts alike. What makes it so unique are the competent camera arrangement and the list of specifications with features not many other phones can rival. And this year, as Xiaomi realizes its ambition to advance into the mid-range market, the company will release the Mi A3, a model that has the potential to be the best smartphone under Rs 20,000 in 2019.

With all the benefits one can get with the Redmi Note 7 Pro, it is arguably the best smartphone under Rs 15,000 you can buy. The success of Note 7 Pro has paved the way for other successors to be introduced. One of them is Mi A3. Although it will not be released at least in the next few months, rumors and projections on it have already surfaced.

Xiaomi has made the Mi A2 resemble the Mi X6, except for a few tweaks, so there are reasons to believe that the Mi X is the platform on which the company builds their Android One series. With that pattern in mind, the Xiaomi Mi A3 will probably share some key features with the Mi 9X. If that assumption turns out to be true and you want to get something new from Xiaomi and have a deeper pocket, the Mi 9X is the way to go. Otherwise, its replica, the Mi A3 is the best smartphone under Rs 20,000 this year.

If the information above has ignited your interest in the Mi A3, here are a few things you need to know. Please note that we have limited official details on the Mi A3, so the following specifications are just projections, but were based on solid evidence of course.

What We Know From The Mi 9X

The Mi 9 series is the flagship line from Xiaomi and to cover the lower range, the company releases the Mi 9X. The year 2019 has seen the debut of both the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE and the Mi 9. From what we know so far, these two models do not differentiate much. The Mi 9 SE is a bit more affordable because it features a weaker chipset, a less durable battery, and a less competent camera setup than the Mi 9. Because of this, the Mi A3 is believed to be based on the Mi 9 SE itself.

Rumor has it that the Mi 9X will even be cheaper than the Mi 9 SE

Rumor has it that the Mi 9X will also be less expensive than the Mi 9 SE. Xiaomi hopes that the Mi A3 will pave the way for it to conquer the mid-range market in European countries and India, so it might try to make the Mi A3 the best smartphone under Rs 20,000. And to have a more competitive price, it seems like Xiaomi wants to take Redmi Note 7 Pro as the base to design the Mi 9X on. This move might give it the edge to compete with Motorola and Nokia.

What Are The Projections For Mi A3’s Specifications?

Xiaomi has some unfinished business with the Redmi Note 7 pro, so this time with the Mi A3, they might continue from there. From what we can make out from the screen of the Mi A2, there might be a drop notch on the surface. Since it takes its clues from the Mi 9, the chin might be narrow.

Some even suggest that Xiaomi may give the Mi A3 the AMOLED display to enable an in-screen fingerprint sensor. If Xiaomi does that, the Mi A3 might be able to rival the Galaxy A50 in terms of specifications. Continue the trend that Samsung and other smartphone makers are following, Xiaomi might focus on the camera arrangement on its new smartphones.

The Mi 9 is a triple-camera smartphone so the company might do the same on the Mi A3 too. Samsung has gained the pioneer spot in normalizing this feature by adding it to both the Galaxy A50 and the Galaxy M30. The Note 7 Pro sports a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor so there is a chance that the Mi A3 will inherit this trait. As 2019 has seen a handful of smartphones featuring the wide-angle cameras, Xiaomi might follow suit and add a 13-megapixel wide-angle camera to its newest phone too.

Apart from that, it is believed that the Mi A3 will have an 8-megapixel telephoto camera too. On the other side, the selfie camera might sport a 32-megapixel sensor. This arrangement could place the Mi A3 the best smartphone under Rs 20,000 to take photos.

Under the hood, the Mi A3 might run on the Snapdragon 675 chipset, which is more powerful than the Snapdragon 710. The Redmi Mote 7 has been running without a single slip with this chipset so Xiaomi might use the same thing and pack Android Pie to get an even better experience. We may expect the Mi A3 to look somewhat similar to the Mi 9, especially on the back, there might be curves just like those of the Mi 9. The headphone jack might be absent on this model, and we have reasons to believe that the phone will be fueled by a 3,000 mAh battery.

Let’s not rule out the assumption that to make Indian users feel more positive about the phone, Xiaomi might boost the battery a little bit, to 4000mAh, and keep the headphone jack.

Xiaomi Mi A3’S Expected Price And Releasing Date In India

The Samsung Galaxy A has been a success with its wide range of functions. Xiaomi obviously does not want to be left behind, and its action might be the Mi A3. For this reason, the phone might set you back Rs 16,999 to get the standard 4GB/64GB. There might be another version with 6GB/128GB coming with an addition of Rs. 3,000, which still qualifies the Mi A3 to be the best smartphone under Rs 20,000.

That is all for the price, now, let’s talk about when you may expect to get the Mi A3. The time between June and July might be the best time for Xiaomi to launch the Mi A3. The phone may have Android Pie out of the box and later this year when Android Q is introduced, and when it does, there might be an update. However, until the Mi A3 makes its appearance in India, Samsung might have enough time to launch another Galaxy A smartphones to restore the balance and to compete for the spot of best smartphone under Rs 20,000.
