Xiaomi Mi Max 3 caught on video, 5,500 mAh battery and 6.9-inch display confirmed
As we're getting closer to the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 big announcement, more details about the upcoming phablet continue to surface online. A couple of pictures of the phone's back panel popped up a few days ago, revealing info about what's under the hood.

But if you want an even more in-depth look at the Xiaomi's phablet, we now have two videos showing the black and gold versions of the smartphone. The devices in both these videos may or may not be dummy units, but even so, they should be representative of how the Mi Max 3 looks like.

The good news is we do have a confirmation on some of the components inside the smartphone, such as the huge 5,500 mAh battery and dual camera configuration on the back, which includes 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras.

Also, the sticker on the display clearly states the Mi Max 3 will boast a massive 6.9-inch display, but a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is visible as well, especially on the gold version of the phablet.

As far as the other specs go, previous rumors claim Xiaomi's upcoming mid-range smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 636 processor, coupled with 3GB, 4GB and 6GB RAM, as well as 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage.

A Pro variant is expected to be introduced as well, which will be equipped with a Snapdragon 710 CPU, dual rear camera (20MP+8MP), secondary 16-megapixel selfie camera and 5,500 mAh battery.

There's no info on prices yet, but we can safely assume the Mi Max 3 will be much cheaper in China where it will be initially introduced, than in other countries where Xiaomi plans to make it available afterward.

Now I know why Samsung has never again revisited their 'Galaxy W 7-in." or 'Galaxy Mega 6.5' devices; two well-received devices by young and old customers alike. Probably slept on those models & lost the patents to these guys. Their lost, because these sizes filled the gap between tablets and phones without giving away too many features while allowing the users to still feel comfortable using it as a phone.

Ironically; I was going to say that Samsung should revisits and revive 'The Mega' branding! This 'phablet' (Why it sound like an understatement?) is great for consumers who want screen real-estate that rival tablets but also want 4G LTE connectivity, SMS and cellular calling. And... While this phone is definitely not for me; I can see the appeal! G'Day!

You can patent and/or infringe on concepts; in addition to wasting R&D on a product that's already gained traction in booming markets. Have u not seen all the bs that Apple & Samsung are dealing with now over the same issues?

Probably because the price will be around a quarter of the Find X.

Wow, hopefully they bring it to Australia and LineageOS supports them! Tossing up between a few Android phones, the mid range battle is definitely heating up!

~7” display used to be tablet territory...remember Nexus 7...good to see phones encroaching. Hope someone makes flagship device with 5” display and stock android.

But, the nexus 7 has huge bezels and it’s a lot bigger than mi max 3.

I bought mi max 2 not because of its big screen, but its battery life

Being Huga Barra, you'd expect the exCEO to perhaps be shipped the flagship Xiaomi just out of courtesy. LOL!
