Xiaomi Mi Max 3 to be unwrapped in two days; huge 5500mAh cell, 6.9-inch screen are the main draws
On Thursday, July 19th, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is expected to become official. The latest rumored specs reveal just how "Max" some of the specs are for the 2018 version of Xiaomi's phablet. For example, the device is expected to feature a huge 6.9-inch display, carrying a 1080 x 2160 resolution (FHD+). Those who remember how to do simple math will quickly recognize that the handset has an aspect ratio of 18:9.
Under the hood will be the Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform, equipped with an octa-core CPU running at a clock speed of 1.8GHz. The Adreno 509 GPU handles graphics. The Mi Max 3 has three variants: 3GB of RAM with 32GB of native storage, or 4GB of RAM with 64GB or 128GB of native storage.
The Mi Max 3 will come with a dual camera setup (12MP + 5MP) adorning the back, a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and a massive 5500mAh battery. That one component alone could help generate sales of the handset. Xiaomi's MIUI 9.6, based on Android 8.1, is pre-installed.
If Xiaomi does unveil the Mi Max 3 on Thursday as expected, we should learn more information about the device such as pricing and availability. And we will also learn whether the rumored Mi Max 3 Pro model is real. This premium variant is said to be equipped with the Snapdragon 710 SoC, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage.
