Xiaomi will be launching the Mi Max 3 smartphone this month.
However, the Chinese manufacturer is yet to confirm on its launch date. Last year’s Mi Max 2 had featured a 6.44-inch display. Hence, the rumor mill has been speculating that the Mi Max 3 would be arriving with a larger display that will carry support 18:9 aspect ratio. Fresh photos of the LCD assembly of alleged Mi Max 3 has surfaced today to reveal that it will indeed arrive with a tall aspect ratio screen.
As it can be seen in the images, the LCD panel of the Mi Max 3 does not feature a notch. The side bezels are slim, and it seems to be sporting thin-sized upper and lower bezels since it carries support for tall aspect ratio screen.
In the previous month, the Mi Max 3 was found listed on TENAA. It revealed that the handset features a 6.99-inch display that supports FHD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. An image of the retail box of the Mi Max 3 was shared by none other than the Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun yesterday. The size of the retail box suggested that it could be a big enough to house a smartphone with 6.99-inch display.
The TENAA listing has revealed that the Mi Max 3 is powered by an octa-core processor that clocks at 1.8 GHz. Hence, it is speculated that it may feature Snapdragon 636 chipset or the newly announced Snapdragon 632 SoC. The highest configuration variant of Mi Max 3 may feature Snapdragon 710.
The handset will be coming in RAM choices of 3 GB, 4 GB and 6 GB that may respectively feature 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB of internal storage. It will be powered by a behemoth battery of 5,400mAh capacity. Its dual camera setup may include 20-megapixel Sony IMX363 primary sensor and a secondary 8-megapixel sensor. The phablet is pegged to arrive with 16-megapixel front-facing camera. It may come loaded with MIUI 10 flavored Android 8.1 Oreo.
