The gadgets are codenamed “pyxis”, “bamboo_sprout”, and “cosmos_sprout”. The last 2 are established to be Android One phones as all Android One devices have “_sprout” in their codenames.
It is said that the three smartphones are being tried with “fod” what is short for fingerprint-on-display a.k.a in-display fingerprint sensors. The three smartphones could also have 32MP front-facing cameras with 4-in-1 pixel binning as the hardware test displays the smartphones have an image output resolution of 32MP (6560 x 4928) for the front-facing camera.

There is the Sd 670, the Sd 675, the Sd 710, and the Snapdragon 712 which debuted on the Mi 9 SE.
The Mi A3 Lite In addition has a fair number of processors to pick from this sort of as the Sd 632, Snapdragon 636, or even the Sd 660. All 3 phones will be available in different RAM and memory configurations and need to have at least dual rear cameras. They should also run Android Pie out of the package.
