In mid-July / July 2019, Xiaomi in Spain introduced us to the expected Android One smartphone. Ide o Xiaomi Mi A3which was a bit disappointing, mainly due to its specifications.
This is the third line of the relatively successful series of Android One phones from Xiaomi.
Android One phones from Xiaomi do not belong to the premium line
Xiaomi's Class A was the Android One brand - that is, phones with a clean and constantly updated Android without the MIUI extension. Although this model line has never belonged to the premium class of phones, the latest A3 model did not meet expectations. Compared to the previous A2 model, it does not offer significant improvements.
However, we have good news for fans of Android One phones from Xiaomi. Recent information suggests that a more equipped model will enter the market Xiaomi A3 Pro. Yesterday, the Russian Certification Authority (EZK) granted a certificate to the Xiaomi mobile phone with the code designation M1904F3BG.
