Xiaomi Mi A3: Specifications and Features

The Xiaomi Mi A3 is an Android One smartphone, so it comes with a stock version of Android 9 Pie out of the box. Xiaomi is also promising Android Q update for the Mi A3, ahead of many other phones in the market. The Xiaomi Mi A3 features a glass back, similar to the Redmi Note 7, Note 7 Pro and Note 7S smartphones. As mentioned, the phone comes in three colours with all of them featuring gradient back. Xiaomi says the glass back is a 3D curved one, a design element which it took from the flagship Redmi K20 series.

The biggest talking point about the Mi A3 is the display; Xiaomi has gone with a 6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display for the Mi A3 which is a downgrade from the Mi A2 and Mi A1 smartphones. Thanks to the usage of the AMOLED screen, the Mi A3 offers 7th Gen in-display fingerprint scanner. The screen of the phone is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Moving onto the cameras, the Mi A3 sports triple rear camera setup. There’s a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor with f/1.79 aperture, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens with 119-degree field-of-view and a 2MP depth sensor for capturing background information. Xiaomi says it tweaked the 48MP sensor over the last six months since its first usage on the Redmi Note 7 Pro. On the front, the Mi A3 has a 32MP selfie camera, present inside the Dot Notch on display. Both the front and rear cameras offer Portrait mode inside the camera app.

I bought it for my cousin and I was getting 4G+ on Jio but I was not getting 4G+ on airtel while Poco and Samsung S9+ was getting 4G+ at the same place.

Just to check airtel 4G+ I travel various places with poco but RK20 didn’t get 4G+ of airtel at any place while 90% of the place poco was on airtel 4G+.

While I have seen some guys in Mi forum they were getting 4G+ on airtel also.

The poco probably has b3+b40 CA whereas the k20 supports just b40+b40 CA.

Ved dial *#*#4636#*#* and choose phone information, and scroll down to check CA values when the phone shows 4G+.
Take a screenshot, crop out the top part which shows your imei and imsi.

Ya ok thanks. I will post the screenshot some 7-8days later as I am out of station for a week and don’t have RK20. Meanwhile what is the logic of these Honor Phones not supporting airtel and Jio 4G+ while supports idea and Vodafone 4G+.
