Xiaomi is working on direct successors of its smartphones participating in the Android One program launched last year, the Mi A2 and the Mi A2 Lite, and recent rumors coming from trusted sources indicate that the new devices must feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 700 series processors.
Details on the devices, which are likely to be called Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite, come from the chief editor of XDA Developers, Mishaal Rahman.
Earlier this year, the page had announced that the upcoming Android One devices are being developed under the codenames “bamboo_sprout” and “cosmos_sprout” – and rumors indicate that they refer to the successors of the Mi A2.
For those who do not remember, the Android One initiative seeks to work with various manufacturers to produce smartphones that come from the factory with the version of the operating system closest to the standard adopted by Google on Pixel phones.
According to a recent publication of Rahman on Twitter, the new devices would be launched with a processor of the family Snapdragon 700, but still can not say if it will be 710 or 712.
In addition to the two, a third device is being developed with the same chipset and was codenamed “pyxis”, and would refer to a succession of the Mi 6X – which in turn is a Xiaomi device with specifications identical to the Mi A2, but carrying MIUI and launched only in China.
What is expected?
So far, it has been speculated that Mi A3 could come with the Snapdragon 730, while the lite version would have 632. Other information from rumors says that the official name of Mi 6X could be Mi 9X and that it would have the same A3 hardware, but would have MIUI.
The three cellphones were supposed to come with digital readers positioned under the glass of the screen and would have 32 MP front cameras.
There is still no official information on the handsets, so it’s good to keep a footing behind these rumors.
As last year’s models were officially announced in July by Xiaomi, the company is expected to repeat the revelation of the news around the same month.
