The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 was announced about a month ago. When it launched, it was announced in three colors – Black Stone, Dream Gold, and Deep Sea Blue. However, only the first two colors have been available for purchase.
If you have been waiting for the Deep Sea Blue variant to go on sale, then we are happy to report that it is now available for pre-order ahead of its first sale on August 24. The new variant is already listed on Jing Dong Mall and the official Mi store.
The Deep Sea Blue Mi Max 3 will retain the same pricing as the other color variants. The 4GB RAM + 64GB model will be priced at ¥1699 (~$248) and the 6GB RAM + 128GB version will sell for ¥1999 (~$292).
The Mi Max 3 comes with a 6.9-inch 2160 x 1080 display. Thanks to the 18:9 aspect ratio and smaller bezels, the device is not as wide as the Mi Max 2 which makes it easier to hold with one hand. There is a Snapdragon 636 processor under the hood paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM.
The phone also gets the dual rear camera treatment; packing a 12MP sensor along with a secondary 5MP sensor. The front-facing camera is an 8MP sensor. There are tons of AI-based features including scene detection and AI portrait mode.
The Mi Max 3 has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and support for Face Unlock. It also has Bluetooth 5.0, dual SIM support, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The Mi Max 3 also comes with a large 5500mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. Charging is via a USB-C port.
