There is also a new rumour floating around concerning the Mi A3. According to a new US FCC listing, the Mi CC9e is the phone which is likely to be rebranded as the Mi A3. However, it is worth noting that the Mi CC9e is a phone which comes powered by the Snapdragon 730 SoC. Even with that being said, Xiaomi has been known to make some tweaks to the global variant and the Chinese variant of this series, as such it is likely that this might be the difference that Xiaomi makes between the two devices.

Lots of hype from Xiaomi. Looks good on paper but their software updates will mess it.


Only in case of Mi A1 they messed it with Oreo. After that it’s been fine device to use. Android Pie update has brought great performance and battery life to device. Mi A2 also got better battery life after Pie update and hence performing good. 4-4.5 hours of battery life is really good for moderate usage for 3000 battery capacity. If not flash a custom kernel,there are large number available for device. Try out Evolution X rom and Avoid derfest ROM if you are not happy with stock rom. Lineage OS is also quiet decent.


Great devices. Just price it under 20000 and you will sell it like hotcakes.
