Earlier this year, a report suggested that Xiaomi is working on two new Android One phones with in-display fingerprint sensors. Now, one Xiaomi phone with the model number M1906F9SH has been spotted on FCC, which is speculated to be the Xiaomi Mi A3. The listing only reveals the phone’s back panel noting a “48MP AI camera” labeling and Android One branding.
It’s also worth noting that the FCC listing image of alleged Mi A3 doesn’t get a fingerprint sensor cutout, which means we are possibly looking at the in-display fingerprint sensor. The FCC phone’s model number M1906F9SH also lines up well with a Xiaomi phone spotted on TENAA last month (via Android Authority). There it had the model number M1906F9SC. Although, TENAA listing was rumored to be the Mi CC9e rebranded version.
Xiaomi has already launched the Mi CC9 series in China. There are two phones launched – Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e. These boast a 3D glass back design with gradient finish, 48-megapixel primary camera and in-display fingerprint sensor. Both the budget devices offer AMOLED display, 4,000mAh battery, and more.
