If you thought the Mi A2 had everything you needed in a budget smartphone, think again. The primary objective of every phone company these days has become to give you all you need, wait a few months and make you see that there’s more to… everything! The Mi A3 is everything the A2 was… and more! Along with a polished exterior, there’s improved tech under that thin body too. Here’s the improved bits — Octa-core 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, an improved battery of 4030mAh, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, expandable storage; and the one thing that will certainly make you upgrade — the return of the headphone jack. A 48MP triple cam setup is sure to make those selfies even crisp, and at the asking price of ₹12,999 for the 4GB+64GB variant, even though you’re happy with the budget phone you’re using, it sure will be a value-for-money upgrade. The Mi A3 will be available in three colour variants — Kind of Grey, Not just Blue and More than White, and goes on sale on August 23.
