Xiaomi has started sending media invites for yet another launch event in China, scheduled for July 19. As the invite clearly shows, Xiaomi will be launching a smartphone with a big display and Donovan Sung, the Global Spokesperson of Xiaomi confirmed the device is indeed the much-awaited Xiaomi Mi Max 3. The device will be unveiled on July 19 in China and could go on sale in the country at a later date. As of now, there's no info on when Xiaomi is bringing the Mi Max 3 to the Indian market, but it could launch during the first half of August. To recall, the Mi Max 2 was launched in India on July 18, so we're expecting that Xiaomi will not delay the launch of the Mi Max 3 in India.

The Mi Max 3 already made an appearance at Chinese certification website TENAA. The handset is confirmed to sport a 6.99-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio on the front. The phone is said to come in two variants- the standard Mi Max 3 and a much powerful Mi Max 3 Pro variant. The Mi Max 3 is confirmed to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, while the Mi Max 3 Pro is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC.

Another USP of the Mi Max 3 is the 5400mAh battery inside, and the device will also have support for fast charging. The handset is expected to boot MIUI 10 based on Android Oreo out of the box. Both the Mi Max 3 and Max 3 Pro variants existence is confirmed by the NCC certification website.
Lastly, the pricing of the Mi Max 3 Pro with 6GB of RAM is said to be 1699 Yuan (approx. Rs 17,400), meaning the base variant will be priced even lower. All the details will be unveiled at the launch event on July 19.
