The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 was teased on Weibo and also showcased in press renders by Lin Bin, company founder. Today everything was officially unwrapped at an official event so we get to see the full picture.
It has a 6.9 screen with Full HD+ resolution and 18:9 ratio and a massive 5,500 mAh battery.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 borrows plenty of specs from the Redmi Note 5. It runs the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset with an octa-core CPU at 1.8 GHz. The dual camera setup is also the same - 12 MP main snapper with f/1.9 aperture, 1.4΅m pixel size and dual-pixel phase detection AF, plus a secondary 5 MP unit with f/2.0 lens for portrait shots.The selfie snapper has an 8 MP sensor.
Connectivity includes Dual VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and a USB-C port. There is also a 3.5 mm audio jack, unlike the flagship Mi 8 series.
While the OS is Android 8.1, the phone arrives with MIUI 9.5 out of the box and plenty of AI features, including scene recognition, face unlock, better selfies and a voice assistant. It should get a MIUI 10 update soon and most likely even MIUI 11, given how Xiaomi takes care of its phones security.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 might be closely related to the Redmi Note 5 on the inside, but on the outside, it is more like an enlarged Mi 6X with the same antenna bands design. The new phablet is 176.15 x 87.4 x 7.99 mm in size and weighs 221 grams.
Available in Black, Champagne Gold, and Blue, the Mi Max 3 will be available in two configurations - 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage for CNY1,699 ($252/220) or 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage for CNY1,999 ($300/255).
