Xiaomi is set to unveil the Mi A3 as its newest Android One phone in Spain later today. But just hours ahead of the formal debut, the anticipated handset has been leaked in detail by an online publication, which managed to get it hands on the phone. The phone is claimed to be similar to Xiaomi’s Mi CC9e that was launched in China earlier this month. It is said to carry an HD+ display and a waterdrop-style notch design. The Chinese company will bring the Mi A3 as a successor to the Mi A2 that was launched in many global markets including India last year.
The unannounced Mi A3 has been sourced by technology website SoyaCincau.com. Corroborating previous reports, the site claims that the new Mi A-series phone is similar to the Mi CC9e that Xiaomi launched specifically for the youth.
