Recently, some leaks of the Xiaomi Mi A3 surfaced on the internet. A Xiaomi device with model number M1906F9SH on the FCC. While the company has not confirmed if its upcoming smartphone, the Android One handset is assumed to be Mi A3.
We should point out that the model number that is mentioned on the documents submitted to the FCC notably matches with the model number of the Mi CC9e handset. The Mi CC 9e was launched by the company in its home market earlier this week. Now, it is being speculated that the company is going to launch the Mi CC9e device with a new name of Mi A3 in other parts of the world.
As per the schematic that surfaced on FCC, the device is rumoured to come with a similar design as that of the recently released Mi CC9e. The leaked images show that the rebranded device has an Android One logo on its back panel. Apart from that it clearly shows that the handset will be offering both dual and single SIM options. According to the image, the upcoming smartphone will sports a 48MP primary camera that will have support for Artificial Intelligence (AI) features.
As per the FCC listing, the Xiaomi Mi A3 also reveals the dimensions are also very similar to the dimensions of Mi CC9e. The device measures 153mm in height and 71mm in width.
We should also mention that even before the launch of Mi CC9e, the images of the device leaked via TENAA listing that has a model number M1906F9SC. Now, the Mi A3 model number is M1906F9SH that is somewhat is similar to the Mi CC9e model number.
The images of the devices on Weibo depict codename”laurel_sprout.”. A report in XDA Developers explains that usually, the Android One devices feature a suffix of _sprout. This again points towards the possibility that Xiaomi A3 will be the rebranded version of Mi CC9e. The Chinese smartphone maker has not yet confirmed anything about the upcoming device. But in the past, the company has launched its various handsets as Mi A-series Android One handsets. Previously, the Chinese company had launched its Mi 5X in the market by renaming it as Mi A1 in 2017.
In the same way last year the company launched Mi 6X as Mi A2 in the global market. So we cannot entirely rule out the possibility of Mi CC9e being Mi A3. Xiaomi hasn’t yet confirmed any development officially.
