Xiaomi on Wednesday announced the launch of its third-generation Android One smartphone, Mi A3. Xiaomi Mi A3 comes in following colour options: More than White, Kind of Grey, and Not just Blue.

Xiaomi Mi A3 4GB variant will be available for 12,999 while the 6GB RAM variant will cost 15,999. The sale will begin on August 23 via Amazon.in, Mi.com and Mi Home stores. The company also announced an introductory offer where users can get 750 cashback on credit cards.

Xiaomi Mi A3 is a big improvement over the predecessor in terms of design. Unlike Mi A2 metal unibody design, Mi A3 comes with a curved glass back panel. The front has also changed from 18:9 screen to 19:9 aspect ratio with a waterdrop notch on the front. The rear panel doesn't have a dedicated fingerprint slot as the sensor has now been moved under the screen - similar to OnePlus 7 and Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro.

Xiaomi Mi A3 also brings back 3.5mm headphone jack, a key feature missing in Mi A2. Users can expect a better camera experience as Mi A3 offers a 48-megapixel camera.
