Xiaomi has managed to garner a ton of attention over the past month or two. Thrilled by the launch of the Mi9 series, the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi 7 series, Xiaomi has shifted its focus towards its upcoming Android One devices.
Leaks regarding the supposedly Xiaomi Mi A3 suggest that Xiaomi may be including an under-display fingerprint sensor. However, unlike the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite, there’s a good chance we may be seeing the Mi A3 series consisting of a total of three devices. As XDA Member, Franztesca notes, there would be a total of three devices being developed by Xiaomi, two of which are supposedly going to be a part of Xiaomi’s Android One program. The three devices are named, “pyxis,” “bamboo_sprout,” and “cosmos_sprout.”
Given that Xiaomi’s Mi A1 and Mi A2 series of devices were largely based around their Xiaomi counterparts, we would speculate that the two Android One powered devices would most likely share spec sheets from Xiaomi’s Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE, excluding the SoC. We’re talking about an SoC choice between the Snapdragon 712 or the 670 paired with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM for folks who want to go with the Mi A3 or Mi A3 Lite as we would suppose these devices would be called. However, we wouldn’t get hyped up this early into the race. After all, the Redmi Note 7 series is doing incredibly well.
Coming from the largely successful Mi A2, the Xiaomi Mi A3 would continue enhancing Xiaomi’s co-operation with Google as they move forward. Google is also rumored to be working with Xiaomi for their upcoming Google-branded device, set to release over the next few months. Whether the Mi A3 series of devices would resemble that upcoming device is yet to be seen. However, we wouldn’t be surprised to see if it doesn’t work out either.
Now that we have at least two devices that feature the “sprout” codename as the suffix in two of the three devices, we wouldn’t mind to see Xiaomi including some incredible features on these devices to keep Google and the audience entertained. After all, maintaining a strong presence in China and India is Xiaomi’s core focus, and by the looks of it, that’s exactly where Xiaomi is heading.
