Xiaomi Mi Max 3 to be launched in July, says company's CEO
It's been exactly one year since Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Max 2, but the sequel to the phablet is likely to be announced slightly later than we've been used to. Apparently, the Mi Max 3 will be officially introduced in July, which means it will probably be launched on the market a month later, in August.

Last year, the Mi Max 2 made its debut on the market in June, so we would have expected Xiaomi to reveal the Mi Max 3 around the same time, but that's not going to happen. Even though Xiaomi has a launch event this month, the Chinese company won't announce the Mi Max 3.

Instead, Xiaomi's CEO, Lei Jun said the phablet is not yet ready for prime-time and that the Mi Max 3 will be introduced sometime in July. According to the latest leaks, Xiaomi Mi Max 3 will be packed with mid-range specs, such as a Snapdragon 636 processor, 3GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

The smartphone will come in different variations depending on the amount of memory, but a version powered by a Snapdragon 660 CPU may be introduced as well. Still, the highlights of the Mi Max 3 are likely to be the huge 7-inch FHD+ display and the dual-camera setup on the back.

Those who can't wait for the Mi Max 3, can buy the Mi Max 2 right now, Lei Jun said in a post on Weibo. But if you really want the upcoming Mi Max 3, you'll have to wait for at least two more months.

Don't forget, if the rumor about Sony Xperia codenamed H44xx (H4413) released next quarter (Q3 2018) as XA2 Plus become true, it could count as well.

Personally the mid-range category is very strange, since for the same price you can buy a brand new last-year top-tier model that'll blow any of this mid-rangers out of the water like a Samsung S7 or even S8.

Eh I'm looking and that's not the case. U still have to pay $500 for last year flagship unless u go used or refurb.

Article didn't said about price, they write "mid-range specs" which suit that SD636/660, 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. And about price, Mi Max (2016) launch price is ~$170, Mi Max 2 launch price is $200, and I'm sure Mi Max 3 will be less than $250.. Did I can get Samsung S7 (or even S8) at that price?

That was the case for 2016 flagships but in 2017 not anymore with the exception of the p10. Even the g6's price no longer got as low as that of the v20

S8 is still above 600USD, thats double the price of most mid-rangers. S7 is rubbish.
