Today, 4 July 2019, the Indian division of the Xiaomi brand has presented the new entry level Redmi 7A. A smartphone expected above all because of the price, in fact it can be found in the various online stores at around 70 euros, while for the purchase on official basis it is still necessary to wait because in Europe the official launch has not yet happened.
But apart from that, a tweet from Xiaomi India's VP, Manu Kumar jain, appeared online yesterday and at first thought that Indian Redmi 7A could debut with a processor different from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 while today we can argue that the Indian executive has perhaps thrown the bait to anticipate that soon the new Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite will debut at home.
Manu Kumar Jain teases about Xiaomi Mi A3 / Mi A3 Lite's debut in India
Yes, we would have loved to launch it with my fav SD 625! 😁 Unfortunately our truck got stolen 🚚
Oh wait .. There's a new 625 in the market: SD 710! 😜 Fortunately, this time we are smarter by upgrading to latest SD 730, which is 40% faster than 1 year old SD 710 🚀 https://t.co/wR8wNHMUft

In fact, as can be seen from the post, in a joking tone Manu Kumar Jain announced that they would launch a device equipped with Snapdragon 625 but the component truck broke. Fortunately, the new SD625 is available on the market, that is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, in which case it is the CPU that feeds the recent Xiaomi CC9, indicated by the rumors as the basis of the future Android One Mi A3.
Probably the tweet does not mean anything, but why then make that statement? Personally I think that Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite are closer than we think and, that the recent confirmation and affirmation in the Indian smartphone landscape, as brand number 1, could be the occasion for a debut on a global scale.
Indeed Xiaomi India for well 7 consecutive quarters won this title reaching a + 30.6% share of the market. It means that 1 on 3 smartphone buyers in India are lovers of the Xiaomi brand, so it's no wonder India will be chosen as the global debut of the brand's new Android One.
