Xiaomi is set to unveil its newest Android One phone, the Mi A3, soon, and details of the device have now been revealed in full. Notable takeaways include a 32 MP selfie camera, 48 MP main rear shooter, and an SoC that looks to a worse performer than the chipset on last year's Mi A2.

Xiaomi Mi A-series was introduced back in 2017, effectively bring Android One phones back to the mainstream. The company has released three Android One phones so far: The Mi A1, Mi A2, and Mi A2 Lite. Yet another phone in the series is set to be launched in the coming weeks, and details of the device have now leaked in full.

The Mi A3 will feature a 6.0-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. Xiaomi looks to be using AMOLED displays on more of its devices, which is a nice move. Under the hood is Qualcomm's recently released Snapdragon 665. Sadly, the Snapdragon 665 isn't an upgrade on the Snapdragon 660 that was on the Mi A2. It's worse in both single core and multi-core tests. However, it should be more efficient.

The Mi A3 will ship with 4 GB of RAM, apparently, and buyers will be able to choose between 64 GB and 128 GB of storage. Bezels are slim and there's a teardrop notch on the front of the device. Housed within the notch is a 32 MP selfie camera for selfie lovers. At the back is the 48 MP Sony IMX586 with an f/1.8 aperture lens, an 8 MP ultra-wide angle, and a 2 MP depth sensor. 

Under the hood is a 4000 mAh battery. There's no fingerprint reader at the back, so it stands to reason that the A3 will sport an under-display sensor. There is, of course, a Type-C port at the bottom of the device, likely with 18 W Quick Charge support.
