The amount of leaks surrounding the Mi Max 3 in the previous week have clearly hinted that the Mi Max 3 is around the corner. However, Xiaomi today re-posted an old Mi Max teaser video on its Weibo page. That teaser (promo video) was way back in 2016 with the first Mi Max and reposting it now only means that we are in our final pre-launch phase. Still, no dates have been set by the manufacturer.
Having said that, most of the specifications of the Mi Max 3 are well known by now, thanks to its internal scanning at TENAA. The handset will have 6.9-inches of Full HD+ display with 1080 x 2160p resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. As regards the processor, there’s still some confusion as some pointers suggest a Snapdragon 636, while others report a Snapdragon 660 in the driving seat under the chassis. A huge 5,400mAh battery will occupy the metal body handset to power the big screen and we’re also expecting significantly better cameras than last year.
Moreover, there’s a Pro model in the works too this year. Word is that this handset will get a Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Among the most recent news surrounding the handset, a live image of the Mi Max 3 is now circulating online after Xiaomi CEO, Lei Jun, posted a retail box of the phablet.
Xiaomi is somewhat late with the Mi Max 3 this year, but it looks like the wait for the phone will be worthwhile. Also, most likely, an Indian launch should follow soon (hopefully next month) after a China launch.
