The Mi Max 3 is apparently drawing closer to being announce, seeing that the device has been spotted in the database of China’s TENAA regulatory body. The listing also reveals the specifications of the upcoming device; showing a behemoth of a smartphone.
Rumours had originally pegged the Mi Max 3 display at 7-inches, and this seems to have been off by a small amount. The actual listing shows a 6.9-inch TFT LCD display with a 2160 x 1080 resolution. That’s an 18:9 aspect ratio for those keeping score.
Inside is a likely Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 mobile platform, up to 6GB RAM, and up to 128GB storage. If that massive amount of storage isn’t enough, there is also support for microSD expansion for cards up to 128GB in size. As expected, it will also ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.
Three cameras are listed as existing on the phone; which indicates that there is a dual camera setup on the rear. Something that really shouldn’t come as a surprise for smartphones these days. The rear camera are expected to be a 12MP and 5MP combination; while the front shooter is rated at 8MP.
The Mi Max 3 is expected to weigh a little more than the Mi Max 2, coming in at 221g. This extra weight is likely due to the new 5400mAh battery. If the Mi Max 2 was any indication, it should be able to last at least a couple of days between recharging.
Xiaomi is expected to release three variants of the Mi Max 3, which should cover most customer expectations. A pricing structure is uncertain at the moment, and it’s somewhat difficult to tell whether it will be close to the price of the Mi Max 2 with the global trade war looming.
