Any guesses, which smartphone Xiomi will launch?
The development comes just a couple of days after Xiaomi launched the Redmi 7 and Redmi Y3 in India.
It is to be noted that earlier this month, Qualcomm announced three of its new Snapdragon SoCs, namely the Snapdragon 665, Snapdragon 730 and Snapdragon 730G.
Well, with the hint that is given by Manu Kumar Jain, it is easy to say that the smartphone with either have Snapdragon 730 or Snapdragon 730G. However, for the model name and its other specifications, we all have to be in wait and watch mode.
The ongoing rumours suggest that the Xiaomi will launch its Mi A3. The smartphone is likely to have an in-display fingerprint sensor and stock Android Pie. Alongside the Mi A3, Xiaomi may bring Mi A3 Lite. This could be cheaper than the Mi A3 and would have inferior specifications. Importantly, both the models of Mi A3 are speculated to have a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
It is worth mentioning here that Samsung recently launched its new flagship Galaxy A80 with the gaming-centred Snapdragon 730G SoC. It is yet to reach the Indian market.
Earlier this week, Xiaomi launched Redmi Y3 selfie camera phone with a 32-megapixel sensor at the front and the Redmi 7 budget phone. Both phones will go on sale in India next week.
