In recent times, there has been a lot of fuss in the tech world regarding the expected Xiaomi Mi Max 3. At a point, it became boring because we had daily (multiple per day in some cases) releases of bits of information regarding this phablet. Of course, this phablet attracted so much attention because it comes with something new – it has the largest display in its series and this display is not the only “huge” stuff it has. Battery, RAM and even memory are also on the “big” side so, yes, it is attractive. Today, Xiaomi finally unveiled the Mi Max 3 and most of the leaks an speculations are actually true.
This device comes with a full metal body design and it has a huge 6.9-inch FHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Despite the humongous size of this device (176.15×87.4×7.99mm), it weighs only 221g and will be available in Meteorite Black, Dream Gold, and Dark Blue color options.
Although this phablet does not come with a notch (that would have been ugly), you have a huge display for contents because its bezels are ultrathin. The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is powered by a Snapdragon 636 SoC with Adreno 509 GPU coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. We also have a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory variant. Anything short of Android Oreo (Android 8.1) would have been disappointing and Xiaomi knows this, so it gave this device Android’s latest system out-of0-the-box. Looking at the camera department, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 comes with a dual rear camera setup which has a 12MP+5MP configuration with dual PD focus, AI voice assistance and scene recognition which can identify 206 scenes. On the front, we have an 8MP shooter.
A major highlight of the Max 3 is its 5500mAh battery which comes with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and it is 200mAh better than that on its predecessor. We expect the battery the battery of the Max 3 to go above 2 days because the 5300 mAh battery in the Max 2 boasts of a 2 days workability. The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 also includes a rear fingerprint sensor, Dual hybrid SIM, Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4 / 5GHz) MIMO, Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, and a USB Type-C.
As for its pricing, the 4GB/64GB variant sells for 1699 Yuan ($252) while the 6GB/128GB version goes for 1999 Yuan ($296). Official sales start from July 20th but we don’t know when this device will go global.
