The Mi Max 3 was listed in China’s telecom regulatory authority’s (TENAA) database a couple of days ago along with its specifications and features. However, its images were not updated. Now, we bring you the first real images of the Mi Max 3. The images of the large-screen phablet was updated earlier today, and it shows a device that’s designed much like the Mi 6X, but only bigger.
The Mi Max 3 is the first smartphone in the series with a full-screen design. Looking at the image, we can see that most of the front of the Mi Max 3 is covered by its screen and surrounded by minimal white bezels. Above the screen, we can see the earpiece, front-facing camera, and some necessary sensors. The rear of the phone appears to have a metal build, featuring a vertical dual-camera setup, a fingerprint reader, and the Mi logo.
