Apparently, it seems like Xiaomi isn’t done with their launches yet. Following the launch of the Redmi 7 and Redmi Note 7 lineup, it seems like the next device making its way to Xiaomi’s lineup could be the Mi A3 / Mi 9X. Images alleging to be of the a Redmi device have surfaced on the internet, leaking what we could expect from the device.
According to the leaked image, it seems like the device features yet again a triple camera setup on the back. However, the shocking part of the leak has to lie in the CPU, battery, and camera department where the device seems to be featuring a headphone jack, a 4000mAh battery, a Snapdragon 730 SoC and a pop-up camera. There’s no information what the megapixel count from the front camera looks like. However, what we could confirm based on the image is that the device in the image features a 48MP shooter, a 13MP shooter, as well as an 8MP shooter on its rear.
The leak alleges that the image seems to have originated from a Redmi-branded phone. However, that seems unlikely given how extensively Xiaomi has filled in the gaps there. If it could be anything, it has to be the Mi 9X if the leaks are indeed true, which would also suggest that the hardware specs may also be the specs of the Mi A3, Xiaomi’s upcoming Android One device.
There’s no telling if the leak is true. I’m personally not confident in the leak given how heavily edited the images published are. However, then again, recent leaks have suggested the active development of Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi A3 lineup. Whether this lines up with them or not is something only the future could tell. For now, we would say, take the leak with “a ton of salt”.
