It seems like there’s no end to the number of smartphones the Chinese company, Xiaomi, will release this year. After the release of the Xiaomi Redmi 6 last week, there are rumours flying around that the company is already in production for yet another phone. This new phone is said to be a new member of the Mi Max family – Xiaomi Mi Max 3. The phone is reported to have been spotted on China’s TENAA with features distinct to the Mi Max line-up.
The listings revealed some specs of the smartphone, but it wasn’t accompanied by images of the phone. It will be powered by a large 5,400mAh battery. The phone will feature a 6.9-inch screen with LCD 2160×1080 pixel resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.
The last member of the Mi Max family featured a 5,300mAh battery and 6.44-inch screen with Full HD resolution. Apparently, the Mi Max 3 is following the family tradition with a bigger battery and bigger screen.
The smartphone is also listed to run on an octa-core 1.8GHz processor paired with RAM options of 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB options for internal storage. The unnamed chipset is speculated to be a Snapdragon 636, but we can’t be sure of anything until the official spec sheet is released.
The listing also stated that the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 features three cameras, which is likely to be a dual 12MP rear camera setup and a 5MP selfie camera.
Further details include 176.15×87.4×7.99mm phone dimension with 221g body weight. It’s stated to run on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and features a headphone jack, fingerprint sensor and IR blaster for quality sounds.
The predecessors of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3, Mi Max and Mi Max 2 were announced in May 2016 and June 2017 respectively. This put the launch of the smartphone before late July. As for the pricing, we have no idea yet.
