Xiaomi Mi A3 and A3 Lite to come with Snapdragon 700-series SoCs


We’ve heard about Xiaomi going with the Snapdragon 700-series for its spending budget Android 1-powered smartphones just before, and now we have a different confirmation coming from a relatively respected supply.

According to a tweet, the phones are codenamed Bamboo Sprout and Cosmos Sprout, which tends to make sense as the preceding generations Xiaomi Mi A devices carried the identical Sprout naming suffix.

However, the information does not come with precise information relating to the chipsets, but our finest guess is that the Snapdragon 730 or at least 712 will be powering up the Xiaomi Mi A3 when the A3 Lite will settle for the slightly significantly less strong Snapdragon 710.

Interestingly, the report also says that Xiaomi is functioning on a third Snapdragon 7XX-powered smartphone codenamed “Pyxis” but additional information desires to pile up just before we can paint a complete image.

If rumors are to be believed, the Mi A3 shapes up to be a fairly sweet mid-variety handset with a strong SoC and an in-show fingerprint reader, which in turn signifies that the Mi A3 will be the 1st of the series with an OLED panel.
