Xiaomi has switched things up a bit this year, with the launch of its Android One smartphone series, the Mi A-line. Instead of launching the Mi A3 Lite and Mi A3, we only got the latter which itself is a downgrade in some areas when compared to the Mi A2. Following its announcement, there were reports that we will be getting a Mi A3 Pro later. It seems that time is drawing closer.
Earlier this month, Russia’s EEC certified a phone with the model number M1904F3BG. The model number is a variant of that of the Xiaomi CC9 (M1904F3BT/M1904F3BC).
The Mi A3 Lite is actually a rebranded version of the Xiaomi CC9e sold in China, and since the device certified by the EEC is actually the Xiaomi CC9, there is a high probability it will arrive as the Mi A3 Pro in Europe.

The Xiaomi CC9 has a 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. There is a Snapdragon 710 processor under the hood with 6GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage.
There is a 32MP f/2.0 camera in front for selfies and a 48MP + 8MP + 2MP triple camera setup on the rear. The CC9 also has an in-display fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC which should come in useful for Google Pay, an audio jack, an IR blaster, and FM radio. It packs a 4030mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.
Based on its specs, the Xiaomi CC9 fits well as the Mi A3 Pro. It has better specs than the Mi A2 series and will definitely sell for a much higher price.
We don’t know how soon it will launch but there is a chance it will be announced before the end of August.
