Xiaomi’s Mi Max series always featured one of the biggest smartphone displays of its time and the same will continue in 2018 as well. After today’s official confirmation from the company, we now know for sure that the Mi Max 3 will feature a monstrous 6.9-inch display that should cater to your gaming and entertainment needs. But the Mi Max series is not just known for its huge displays, it’s also famous for its extravagant battery capacities. The Mi Max 3 is no exception with the company confirming that it will come with a massive 5500mAh battery to ensure that the phone’s large screen is powered for a very long time!

Almost everything about the phone is known via official teasers, leaks, and rumours. Hence, it’s time for a Mi Max 3 specs rumour roundup article to see what’s in store for us on July 19.


Gone are the days when companies used to protect their upcoming smartphones to ensure there’s enough excitement during the launch event. Now, there’s a growing trend among smartphone makers to reveal almost everything about the device before it goes official. The same is applicable with the Mi Max 3 as well. Xiaomi has already shown us its design, specs, and teased a few features giving us a clear picture of the handset.


Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Design

Apart from the Mi Mix series, rest of Xiaomi’s smartphones have featured standard designs. In case of the Mi Max 3, Xiaomi is adopting the exact same design as the Mi 6X. This means that you get a top left placed dual camera setup with flash in between, center placed fingerprint sensor at the back, and up front, thin bezels on the top and the bottom. In short, consider the Mi Max 3 as an enlarged version of the Mi 6X.

There are three color options confirmed on the Mi Max 3 namely black, blue, and gold.



Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Specs

Apart from one leak a few weeks back, there hasn’t been much information about the rumoured Mi Max 3 Pro version with Snapdragon 710 inside. It’s quite possible that there is just one processor version of the Mi Max 3 with Snapdragon 636 inside. This particular model has been detailed in the most recent teaser revealed by the company president Lin Bin, thereby confirming its key specs.




So, the confirmed Mi Max 3 specs are as follows:

  • 6.9-inch FHD+ 18:9 Display
  • Snapdragon 636
  • 4+64 storage
  • 6+128 storage
  • 12+5MP rear cameras
  • 8MP front camera
  • 5500mAh battery

There are a bunch of other AI enabled features as well like Face Unlock, Single Camera bokeh, AI scene recognition, Voice assistant etc.

Note that the Mi Max 3 has already passed multiple certifications websites like TENAA, NCC (Taiwan), and EEC (Eurasian). Further, according to these case renders, the phablet will feature an IR port as well. Recently, Xiaomi seems to have skipped this particular feature from some of its recent smartphones, so it’s worth mentioning that the Mi Max 3 is likely going have it. 

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Price

While Xiaomi is yet to officially announce a price tag for the Mi Max 3, it has confirmed that it will be under 2000 Yuan (~$300). This is likely for the highest end model, i.e. 6GB+128GB edition, which would be a pretty good deal!

To recall, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 was launched in two models like 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 4 GB RAM + 128 GB storage with respective pricing of 1,699 Yuan (~$253) and 1,999 Yuan (~$298). So, the company seems to be aiming for a similar pricing strategy this year as well.

But this year, for this price, there will be big upgrades as compared to its predecessor like in the processor department (SD636 vs 625), display (6.9 vs 6.4), battery (5500 vs 5300mAh), and even the cameras (12+5 dual cams vs 12MP single cam).
