Mi Max 3: Retail Box Revealed on Weibo
As you can see above, the Mi Max 3 retail packaging appears to be quite simple with no mention of key features on the front and sides. On the front side, we can see the Max 3 moniker printed with the number 3 being made prominent. On the top right corner, we see the MI branding.
Mi Max 3: Expected Price in India, Launch Date
A recent leak revealed that the Mi Max 3 variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage will be priced at 1,699 yuan in China, which converts to roughly Rs.17,500. In India, we can expect the top-end variant of the Mi Max 3 to be priced at around the Rs.19,000 mark. Of course, the 4GB RAM variants with lower onboard storage will be more affordable and could start at around the Rs.15,000 mark in the country. As for the launch date, Xiaomi is expected to launch the Mi Max 3 a few weeks after its launch in China. Since the Mi Max 3 is expected to launch in China later this month, we can expect the Mi Max 3 to land in India by the end of August or early September.
Mi Max 3: Rumored Specifications, Features
The upcoming Mi Max 3 is expected to feature a huge 6.9-inch sized IPS LCD panel with 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Thanks to the bezel-less design, the Mi Max 3 will actually be more or less similar to the Mi Max 2 in terms of physical size. Under the hood, the Mi Max 3 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, paired with up to 6GB of RAM. Recent rumors also suggest Xiaomi might launch a “Pro” variant of the Mi Max 3 with a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 AIE octa-core processor and up to 6GB of RAM. At the back of the phablet will be a dual-camera setup, although more specific details regarding the cameras haven’t been leaked yet. However, you can expect the Mi Max 3 to come with AI-powered features like an AI Portrait Mode and AI scene recognition like other recent Xiaomi smartphones. For selfies and video calls, the Mi Max 3 will have an 8MP snapper on the front with AI Face Unlock. The Mi Max 3 Pro variant, on the other hand, might come equipped with a higher resolution snapper on the front. Keeping the lights on will be a massive 5500mAh capacity battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support. The Mi Max 3 will also feature a fingerprint sensor mounted on the back and an IR blaster.
