After the launch of the Xiaomi Mi A2 (Mi 6X) Android phone, the selling is going very well for this device because it’s offering a similar Android experience as the Google Pixel devices. But we know that we can’t stop here and we can’t linger only on the current devices that the company is offering now. The successor of the Mi A2 will be the Xiaomi Mi A3 or Mi 7X that is coming this year.
Rumors and Leaks
From January we know that Xiaomi has begun to work on the new Mi A3 Android device and starting from then, many stories about the phone have been rolled out. So the latest rumors are saying that the phone will have the Snapdragon 675 SOC and not the newly launched Snapdragon 712 SOC. Also, the phone will have 8GB of RAM instead of 6GB of RAM, and the storage capacity will be as the 6GB of RAM model. The next two models, the RealMe 3 or the RealMe 3 Pro, will have the same SOC.

Xiaomi Mi A3 Design – regarding the design, the Mi A3 will have a rectangular notch, a water-drop notch and the new island camera can be found on the device. On the other hand, the bottom bezel will not disappear soon, maybe the top bezel. The rear will be from a metal design with the same dual camera setup. But the change could be done on the camera placement. We could have the Mi A3 phone with center camera setup and not on the left side as the last Mi and Redmi phones from this year. Also, the fingerprint scanning technology will be improved, and the response times will be better than we have seen in the first generations.
