Xiaomi has announced that it will launch the Mi A3 as India's next Android One device on August 21, 2019. However, Amazon may have spoiled its reveal by publishing listings for its SKUs ahead of time. They show that these phones will at least start at INR 14,998 (~US$210).

Xiaomi will release the Mi A3 in India on August 21, 2019. This phone is the Android One version of the Mi CC9e, and runs the relatively new Snapdragon 665 SoC The OEM will release it for sale on Amazon.in. This site has reportedly already disclosed its pricing for the new device.

Its new listings show that the e-tailer appears to sell the Mi A3's 4/64GB varniant at INR 14,998, or nearly US$210. Its 6/128GB SKU will be INR 17,498 (about US$244). On the other hand, these prices are labelled "Lightning Deals", suggesting that they may be subject to change in the future.

The Mi A3 may have close competition this year: the comparably-spec'd Realme 5 will also be released in India soon - the day before (August 20, 2019), to be exact. A new report asserts that this phone will be sold at INR 10,000 (~US$139) or less, which, if true, could be a real blow to Android One in the country.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
