Xiaomi Mi A3 retail box, specs and live images surface online

The Mi A3 will feature a waterdrop notch on the top portion of the display which will be a 6-inch 2240x1080 AMOLED screen.

Starting with the confirmation, the Xiaomi Twitter account has revealed in a trio of tweets that the Mi A3 will go official soon and that the upcoming phones will excel at photography. Online speculations suggest that they might be re-branded versions of the CC9 and CC9e smartphones the company launched in China earlier this month, but with pure Android instead of MIUI. Earlier this week, Xiaomi Global Spokesperson Donovan Sung also teased the arrival of new Mi A-series phones running Android One.

As you would notice from the images above, the Xiaomi Mi A3 has a notched display upfront similar to the CC9, even though the bottom bottom bezels seem a bit bigger than the ones on the CC9. The latest leak and the US FCC listing mention that the Mi A3 will draw power from the Snapdragon 665. According to a new report by Ishan Agarwal, the former is codenamed as bamboo_sprout and will be powered by a Snapdragon 730 processor.

It's unclear whether the Mi A3 will employ a glass back or some kind of a polycarbonate body for its back panel.
