Announced back in July last month, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is currently available only in the 4GB+64GB model which comes with a reasonable price tag of 1,699 Yuan (US$ 249). Today, the Chinese company had confirmed that the higher-end model with 6GB+128GB memory configuration will also go on sale starting August 10th this week.
The 6GB+128GB model will arrive at a slightly higher price tag of 1,999 Yuan (US$293) which was attributed by the bigger RAM and a doubled storage space. Aside from a huge upgrade to its memory compartment, the rest of its specs remain similar to the current model with 4GB RAM.
