So, here is everything you need to know about the Mi Max 3:-

#6. Design & Display

From the leaked images, the design of the Mi Max 3 looks quite identical to its predecessor. However, there are multiple changes which can be noticed. The first noticeable change is the camera, the Mi Max 3 will be having a vertical dual-camera setup, and from the back, it kind of reminds you of the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Now coming to the display, the Mi Max 3 is going to have a large 6.99-inch screen instead of 6.44-inch screen, and it will be having Full HD+ display resolution (1080x2160p). However, the device will not be having any notch which we got to see in the Redmi 6 Pro, and MI 8 series smartphones.

#5. Hardware

As far as hardware configuration is concerned, the Mi Max 3 hardware configuration will be quite similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro, except the bigger battery and a screen size.

Given the fact that smartphones with 6 GB of RAM are already available under 15K, Xiaomi may introduce the Mi Max 3 prime variant which will feature 6 Gigs of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory which will be priced a bit higher, whereas, the lower variant will feature the standard 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM.

Based on the recent launches, the device will feature a hybrid card slot, thereby allowing users to use two nano SIM cards or one nano-SIM and a microSD card.

#4. OS

Xiaomi did disappoint us when they launched the Redmi Note 5 Pro running on Android v7.1.2 despite the fact that Android Oreo was available, well, with the Mi Max 3 you won’t have such complaints as the device will running on the latest MIUI 9.5 based on Android Oreo (v 8.1.0).

#3. Battery

The Mi Max series USP has been the battery, in fact, the Mi Max series is the sole Mi smartphones to feature 5000+ mAh battery.  Like the screen size, the Mi Max 3 will also be having a bigger battery. Instead of having a 5300 mAh battery, the Mi Max 3 will come with 5500 mAh battery. In addition to that as you can see from the image above, the device will also support Quick Charge 3.0, therefore, the device won’t take 2-3 hours to get fully charged.

#2. Pricing

Hopefully, Xiaomi will launch 3 variants of the Mi Max 3, the lower variant will feature 4 Gigs of RAM and 64 Gigs of ROM, which will be priced at Rs 16-17 K, whereas the higher variant featuring 6 Gigs of RAM and 128 Gigs of ROM will be priced between 19-20K.
