Now, the company has confirmed that the phone will be equipped with a 48-megapixel sensor. The brand has further revealed that the upcoming smartphone will fall under company’s new S-series.
Redmi India revealed this news on its official Twitter handle. The tweet reads, “An all-new #Redmi with a new 48MP Super camera is coming.” The company has posted an image that shows that it might introduce a new S series of smartphones, probably with Redmi S moniker.
Previously, Xiaomi revealed the information of the upcoming 48MP equipped smartphone on its official Twitter handle, while celebrating 2 million sales of the Redmi Note 7 series in two months since its launch. The tweet mentions, “Now it’s time to gear up for a new #48MP!” This confirms that the upcoming phone from Xiaomi will be second, after Redmi Note 7 Pro, to feature a 48-megapixel sensor.
Interestingly, the phone previously revealed that the phone will feature a triple-camera setup. We now know that one of the sensors will be indeed 48-megapixel, which could be similar to what we have seen in Redmi Note 7 Pro. The brand might introduce a telephoto or wide-angle lens as the secondary sensor, while the third sensor could be a depth sensor.

Other expected specs of the Mi A3 series of phones are 32MP selfie camera, in-screen fingerprint sensor, among other things.
