Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi Max 3 on July 19, i.e., tomorrow, in China. However, it looks like the company couldn’t wait enough to launch this device and tell everyone about it as company executives have already shared a retail box of the Mi Max 3 revealing some specifications, and, the official renders revealing the design of the Mi Max 3. Well now, just ahead of the launch, Xiaomi President Lin Bin has shared some more specifications of the Mi Max 3.
Apart from Lin Bin, Xiaomi too shared the specifications of the Mi Max 3 on Chinese social network Weibo. The Mi Max 3 is confirmed to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 SoC which will be paired with 4 and 6 GB RAM. The 4 GB RAM variant will come with 64 GB internal storage whereas the 6 GB RAM variant will come with 128 GB internal storage.
The Mi Max 3 will also sport a 6.9-inch display that will have aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. For photography, the Mi Max 3 will come with a dual camera setup at the back which is a combination of one 12 MP and one 5 MP camera. And, for selfies and video calls, there’s an 8 MP camera on the front. The Mi Max 3 will also come with some AI-based camera features.
Lastly, keeping this entire package up and running will be a massive 5500 mAh battery which is one of the biggest highlight of the Mi Max 3. As far as the pricing is concerned, Xiaomi has teased the starting price of Mi Max 3 to be ¥1_99. Well, considering the upgrades that Mi Max 3 comes with over last year’s Mi Max 2, it’s needless to say that this phablet will be priced a bit higher than its predecessor. For those unaware, the price of last year’s Mi Max 2 was ¥1699 for 4 GB + 64 GB variant and ¥1999 for 6 GB + 128 GB variant.
