Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Again Rumoured to Sport 6.99-inch 18:9 Display and Snapdragon 635 SoC

Xiaomi will launch its phablet smartphone, the Mi Max 3 in Q2 2018. Months ahead of its official launch, the Mi Max 3′ specifications have leaked online. A new leak from Chinese portal Weibo today revealed that the Mi Max 3 would have a 6.99-inch Full HD+ display, dual rear cameras, and Snapdragon 635 SoC. The phone is also expected to come with a 5500mAh battery, in-line with Max tagline. And the phone will come with fast charging support too.


Recently, we have come across a report about Mi Max 3 suggesting that Xiaomi will use a massive 7-inch 18:9 display on the smartphone, but turns out to be, the Mi Max 3 will have a 6.99-inch display with 18:9 resolution on the front. Xiaomi currently has three 18:9 display smartphones- the Mi Mix 2, the Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus smartphones. The upcoming Xiaomi Mi 7 also expected to feature an 18:9 display on the front. And most probably, Xiaomi’s 2018 smartphones will feature 18:9 display.

Coming to the hardware, the Mi Max 3 is now said to be powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 635 chipset, mated to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s another report which suggested the phone will come with Snapdragon 660 SoC chipset inside.

Qualcomm is yet to announce the Snapdragon 635 SoC, and a recent report of Redmi Note 5 revealed that the phone would come with Snapdragon 632 SoC. It’ surprising to believe that Qualcomm is planning these many mid-range chipsets for 2018. The company already has the Snapdragon 630 SoC and Snapdragon 636 SoC.

The Snapdragon 630 chipset is not a major upgrade over the Snapdragon 625 SoC, while the Snapdragon 636 SoC is in-line with Qualcomm’s upper mid-range chipsets. If Xiaomi uses Snapdragon 632 SoC on the Redmi Note 5, then the Mi Max 3 will make use of the same SoC. Is Xiaomi goes with Snapdragon 635 SoC, then Mi Max 3 will come with the same chipset.

A couple of leaked renders of Mi Max 3 suggested dual rear cameras for the smartphone, along with a beefy 5500mAh battery. The phone will come with fast charging and reverse charging support. And Xiaomi may unveil the MIUI 10 or MIUI X alongside the Mi Max 3 itself.

And the new report also revealed the price of this upcoming Xiaomi smartphone. The phone is rumoured to retail for 1699 Yuan (approx. Rs 16,700).
