After unveiling the Redmi 6 Pro, Mi 6X Hatsune Miku Special Edition, and the Mi Pad 4, it appears as if Xiaomi is prepping for the launch of its latest large-screen smartphone, the Mi Max 3. It will succeed the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 (Review) from last year and will introduce newer features like a bezel-less screen and a dual-camera setup.
We had exclusively confirmed the existence of the Mi Max 3 two weeks ago, and the images and some of the specifications of the smartphone were confirmed through its TENAA certification documents. Yesterday, the specifications and the image of the phone were listed on Xiaomi’s website before they were pulled down. Now, the pricing of the device was seen listed on the website.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3: Price
It looks like Xiaomi will price the Mi Max 3 variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage at CNY 1,699 in China, and that translates to around Rs. 17,583 in terms of Indian currency. There could be cheaper variants of the smartphone with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Of course, when the phone gets launched in the Indian market, its pricing will be slightly higher, no thanks to customs duties and charges.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3: Features, Specifications
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 has a metal back and a glass front. The phone will be launched in Black and Gold. It features a 6.9-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution (1080×2160 pixels), 350ppi pixel density, 18:9 aspect ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and a thin-bezel design. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 10 software with AI-powered features, which was recently unveiled alongside the Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE. The smartphone is equipped with the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, and the chipset is mated to either 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage or 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Storage space can be further expanded, thanks to support for microSD cards.
In the imaging department, the Mi Max 3 makes use of a 12MP+20MP dual-camera setup. The primary, 12MP camera uses a 1/2.55-inch Sony IMX 363 sensor, f/2.0 aperture, 1.4µm pixels, and phase-detection autofocus (PDAF). The secondary, 20MP camera uses a 1/3.4-inch sensor. The camera setup has a dual-tone, dual-LED flash, and it can record 4K videos as well. The phone, just like its predecessor Mi Max 2, uses stereo speaker setup for louder audio and immersive multimedia experience. It’s a dual-SIM smartphone which is compatible with 4G LTE networks. Other connectivity features include GPS/A-GPS, FM Radio, dual-band gigabit Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0, IR Port, and a USB Type-C port. It has a rear-facing fingerprint reader and a massive, 5500mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0.
