The Redmi A3 is expected to launch soon as the successor to the Redmi A2, which was introduced in India in May 2023 along with the Redmi A2+. The alleged handset, like its predecessors, is expected to be a budget offering, being the cheapest of all the Redmi models available in the market. However, the Redmi A3 may come with some significant upgrades compared to the older models. Earlier, the phone has been spotted on multiple certification sites and also listed on select retail stores. Now, the retail box of the rumored handset has been leaked suggesting some key specifications.
A report by GSMArena has shared images of the Redmi A3 retail box. As can be seen on the box, the phone is equipped with a 6.71-inch display, which is much larger than the 6.52-inch panel of the Redmi A2. The report claims that the display will also offer a 90Hz refresh rate. Since the retail boxes have been leaked, and the model has already been spotted in African retail outlets, it is likely to launch soon.
The Redmi A3 is seen with 4GB of RAM along with 128GB of onboard storage. Redmi A2 has been launched with 32GB and 64GB storage options. Notably, the model was recently spotted online with 64GB of inbuilt storage.
Along with the larger display, the Redmi A3 is also said to have a larger camera module. In the images shared in the report, it is seen in a black color option with a circular camera module, placed in the center towards the top of the back panel. It appears to have a dual rear camera system with LED flash.
The previous listing suggests that the Redmi A3 will be available in black, blue and forest green color options, with a centered waterdrop notch at the top of the display to house the front camera. It is expected to support dual SIM connectivity and run Android 13 out-of-the-box. Along with the above display specifications, the phone may offer HD+ (1,600 x 720 pixels) resolution with a 120Hz touch sampling rate and a peak brightness of 400nits.
The Redmi A3 is expected to be powered by a MediaTek chipset with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM, with support for up to 8GB of VRAM. It is also said to have eMMC 5.1 onboard storage. The dual rear camera unit of the phone is likely to include a 13-megapixel primary sensor and an unspecified AI-assisted camera. The front camera may be equipped with an 8-megapixel unit. It is likely to have a 5,000mAh battery with 10W wired charging support.
Redmi A3 was also recently spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, hinting at a launch in India soon.
