Xiaomi Mi A3 lineup to come with Snapdragon 700 series

We’ve already heard rumors about Xiaomi implementing Snapdragon 700 series chipset into their Mi A devices. Now there is another confirmation, and this time it’s coming from a reliable source.

Take a look at the tweet. Devices bear codenames Bamboo Sprout and Cosmos Sprout, which adds up since the previous generation Xiaomi Mi A devices carried the same Sprout naming suffix.

However, we don’t have precise info regarding the chipsets, but our guess is that the Snapdragon 730 or at least 712 will be powering up the Xiaomi Mi A3 while the A3 Lite will settle for the slightly less powerful Snapdragon 710.

Interestingly enough, according to the report, Xiaomi may be working on a third Snapdragon 7XX-powered smartphone codenamed “Pyxis”. There’s still not enough information about it though so we don’t know what that device is.

The Mi A3 is shaping up to be a pretty good mid-range handset with a powerful SoC and an in-display fingerprint reader. This also means that the Mi A3 will be the first of the series with an OLED panel.
