Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is Now Official With 6.99-inch 18:9 Display and 6GB of RAM

The much-awaited Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is now official in China. Xiaomi’s latest phablet is a significant upgrade over the Mi Max 2, both in terms of specifications and design. The Max 3 sports a massive 6.99-inch display with the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio and it’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, same as the ones seen on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Having said that, there’s no Mi Max 3 Pro variant as it rumoured all these days. The Mi Max 3 will be available only in the Chinese market for now, but going forward, Xiaomi will launch it in India because the Mi Max and Mi Max 2 made it to the sub-continent.


Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Specifications and Features
Xiaomi’s Mi Max 3 rocks a massive 6.99-inch Full HD+ display on the front, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. Xiaomi launched the device in three colour options this time around- Meteorite Black, Dream Gold, and Dark Blue. Xiaomi did not reveal whether the display has any protection or not.

Xiaomi has added a primary 12MP shooter on the back with f/1.9 aperture and PDAF. A 5MP secondary depth sensor works in tandem with the primary sensor. Up front, there’s an 8MP shooter. Notably, both the front and rear cameras feature an LED flash.

Wait for Xiaomi Mi A2 to release in India.


Other than size upgrade, the camera too got a major boost with dual pixle auto focus. Battery life was already great in Mi max2 which I am using.


Unfortunately, nothing in terms of audio
