Xiaomi Mi A3 could be a rebadged Mi CC9e

Published

Xiaomi announced the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite towards the end of July 2018 and naturally, the company is expected to succeed the duo with 2019 models – Xiaomi Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite – around this time of the year.

Rumors of these two have been floating around for a while, but things escalated to a whole new level when Xiaomi recently announced the camera-centric Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e handsets in China.

Apparently, these two could grace the global market as Android One devices, presumably, the Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite, respectively. It’s also thought that Xiaomi could launch the Mi CC9e globally as the Mi A3 and not Mi A3 Lite.

The latter case has more evidence to back the claim, but the former is more realistic. Either way, the material evidence that folks at the XDA Developers have collected suggest Xiaomi Mi A3 could be a rebadged Mi CC9e when it arrives these sides.

Granted, we are still looking at an improved device overall when compared to the outgoing Mi A2. Some might not like the lower 720p resolution, but looking at everything else, including the return of the 3.5mm audio jack, the supposed Mi A3 will definitely challenge the likes of Tecno Phantom 9 and Huawei P30 Lite for the money.

Here’s the rest of the Mi A3 specs (based on Mi CC9e specs):

  • 6-inch HD+ AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor
  • Memory: 4GB + 64GB, 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB
  • Tri-lens main camera: 48MP + 8MP + 2MP
  • 32MP selfie camera
  • 4,030mAh battery
  • Android 9 Pie
  • Extras: Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C, 3.5mm audio jack, under display fingerprint scanner, Quick Charge 3.0, etc.

Xiaomi Mi A2 and A2 Lite arrived in Kenya in October. If this timeline maintains, we are looking at an October 2019 release date for Xiaomi Mi A3 here in Kenya. But we’ll have to at least wait for Xiaomi to unveil the device(s), probably later this month.

In China, the base model of the Mi CC9e goes for about Kshs 19,400 while the high-end variant is priced at about Kshs 23,900.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
