Xiaomi recently shared a promotional video on the official Xiaomi phone Weibo handle. The video is actually a promotional one for the Mi Max which was launched in May 2016 and it is curious that the video is being shared now by the company. This move is seen as a strong indication that the next-generation Mi Max model, the Mi Max 3 will be released soon.
You would recall also that Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun recently shared a picture of the Mi Max 3’s retail packaging box. This latest promotional video and the leaked retail box point to the likelihood of the device getting launched this month. Xiaomi is yet to release any launch detail but since the month is still at its infancy, an official announcement could happen in the coming days.
The Mi Max 3 image has already met with us via its TENAA listing. The device will come with a 6.99-inch display which will make it the biggest phone in Xiaomi’s lineup. The screen is a Fullview display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The third-gen Mi Max series continues with the big battery trend of its predecessors, packing a 5400mAh battery. This is slightly bigger than the 5300mAh battery on the Mi Max 2. The phone is likely powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and there will be three memory versions; 3GB+32GB, 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB options.
