Xiaomi Mi A3 Lite passes certification

Xiaomi certified another device at China’s Compulsory Certification Agency (CCC). So far, it seems that this will be the successor of the last year’s Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. It has the model number M1906F9SG and will likely follow last year’s naming strategy. This means that it will be known as the Redmi 7 Pro in China and India and Xiaomi Mi A3 Lite on the international market. Just as last year, it will run stock Android as it belongs to the Android One program.

The listing did not reveal too much, however, it did confirm that the phone will come with a 5V/2A 10W charger. Rumors say that it will be powered by Snapdragon 710 or 712 SoC and triple camera setup with a 48MP main shooter.

The phone is rumored to come with a 3,300 mAh battery. If this turns out to be true, it would be a significant drop from the Redmi 6 Pro’s 4,000 mAh cell.

Last year’s device started at INR 10,999 ($158) for the entry-level 3/32GB model so we can expect similar pricing this year as well. Given the certification, we should be hearing more about the Redmi 7 Pro / Xiaomi Mi A3 Lite in the coming weeks.
