Looking for the latest smartphone under the Android One program? Then have a look at the Mi A3. This is the third smartphone within Xiaomi’s Android One smartphone – and it comes with a lot of perks of an Android One smartphone.
Firstly, your software will be fully supported by Google directly. That means no additional skinning or additional software – everything is handled by Google themselves.
The new Mi A3 comes with a few nose highlights when it comes to specs:
- 6.088-inch AMOLED display with waterdrop notch
- 1560×720 pixels in resolution
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset
- 4GB RAM
- Up to 128GB UfS 2.1 storage with microSD card support
- Triple rear-facing cameras
- Main: 48MP f/1.79
- Ultrawide angle: 8MP f/2.2
- Depth sensor: 2MP
- 32MP selfie camera
- 4,030mAh battery
- Supports 18W fast charging
Overall I think that the Mi A3 is pretty solid in terms of specs. The only thing that I’m not exactly keen is screen resolution. Yeah, it’s a rather small device in today’s standard – but having a 720p display is still sub-par.
Employing the funny naming scheme for the colors of the Pixel phones, the Mi A3 comes with 3 different colors:
- More than White
- Not just blue
- Kind of grey
Honestly, I love that “not just blue” color. The river line really pops out especially under direct sunlight.
Once again, this is an Android One device. The one of the most affordable in the market now, too. Xiaomi has also made the Mi A3 to support the faster 18W charging standard but Xiaomi only included a 10W in the box.
Oh, by the way, there’s IR blaster and the headphone jack as well. Welcome back, jack.
The Mi A3 is available in two configurations starting 3rd August at Shopee, Lazada, and Mi Stores nationwide.
- 4GB RAM + 64GB storage @ RM899
- 4GB RAM + 128GB storage @ RM999
Then comes the Mi Band 4. Finally Xiaomi Malaysia is officially bringing it into the market.
The Mi Band 4 is the company’s 4th generation of fitness band, and the biggest highlight here is the fully colored 0.95-inch AMOLED display. With that, you can use an animated GIF as your watchface as well.
The price of the Mi Band 4 is at RM149 on Lazada, Mi Store, and also Shopee.
