The Xiaomi Mi A3, the company’s latest Android One phone, is yet to arrive in India, but rumor has it that it’s doing just that on August 23 (that’s two weeks from now). Unfortunately, the rumor didn’t go as far as mentioning the price.
The Mi A2 launched on August 8 last year as an Amazon exclusive. It cost INR 17,500, which was slightly below its European price (€250). This model is currently super cheap – just INR 10,000 for the 4/64GB model.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 costs €250 again, so the launch price in India should be about the same as last year. Which is an issue as the old model has a 1080p screen and its chipset performs about the same.
The Mi A3 does offer some upgrades, like the 48MP main camera and ultra wide cam, plus a larger battery (4,030mAh), but that 720p Super AMOLED screen isn’t popular with fans.
