It took less than a year since the arrival of the last member of this family, but The new Xiaomi Mi A3 is now a realityDirectly from Spain, the Peking company announced its new generation family of smartphones with Android One, which began in 2017 with the successful Mi A1.
Although Xiaomi says this the new version is the best so far, Xiaomi Mi A2, introduced in 2018 became the best-selling Android One mobile in the world to combine modern specifications with modern design and extremely competitive price. The question is, can my new A3 face him?

More size and less screen resolution
The change that will probably be less happy than those who are eagerly waiting for the arrival of My A3 decrease the resolution of the screen, The IPS panel of the 5.99 inch Full HD of Mi A2 we have AMOLED screen signed by Samsung, 6.08 inches diagonal with a resolution of only "1,560 x 720 pixels",
The screen, yes, adds some extras as they are optical fingerprint reader integrated into the screen, or the arrival of drop shape, which replaces the frames that surround the Mi A2 panel.
We also find differences in their construction. For the first time in Mi A saga is time to say goodbye to aluminum to welcome glass, this is a Gorilla Glass 5 panel that occupies the back of the phone. However, this does not mean that the phone has received support for wireless charging, and water resistance is not yet available.
A more powerful processor … but not too much
Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, although not one of the latest chips, has managed to offer excellent result over the yearsand no doubt this is one of Mi A2's strengths with regard to its rivals. On this occasion, Xiaomi decided to make the jump to the next generation and continue to use the latest Snapdragon 655something more efficient than its predecessor being produced in a format of eleven nanometers and eight Kryo 220 cores.
What is not changed is the internal memory configuration. 64 or 128 GB of internal memory remain the only available options, although we are happy to know that the battery has grown significantly to 4,030 mAh capacity, Instead, Only RAM configuration with 4 GB is now available, and therefore the better version of 6 GB disappears.
The triple sensor arrives and the selfies camera grows up to 32 megapixels
We also see a significant leap in photography. Two sensors passed three sensors to the back of the phone, 48, 12, and 2 megapixels. The first one is the same Sony IMX586 that moves with most smartphones this year, while the 12 megapixel is a wide angle sensor that lets you capture more information about a scene, and the latter can only capture depth information. It disappears then the phone we liked so much about Mi A2,
Changes also reach the sensor for selfies because we went from 20 to 32 megapixelsAlthough the jump is significant, I'm afraid the software will determine whether it is worth or not having a higher resolution sensor.
On paper, The Xiaomi Mi A3 does not seem to be an extreme evolutionWe see interesting changes, such as the best processor, the higher-capacity battery or the more advanced photographic system. However, other aspects such as lower screen resolution may result in more than one decide on another alternative model on this new Android One terminal,
