Xiaomi has been on a streak of unveiling smartphones and the latest one that is expected to come out is the Mi Max 3. This phone will be the successor of the Mi Max 2 which is currently available in the Indian market for under Rs. 15,000 for the specced up variant. Let’s check out what we can expect from the upcoming offering from the Chinese company.
To start with, the display which is now getting bigger. The Mi Max 2 from last year had a 6.44-inch display which will now be upgraded to a massive 6.9-inch panel rocking an 18:9 ratio.
In terms of resolution, Xiaomi is expected to rock a Full HD+ display on this phone having a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels. This should be a perfect display if you are into consuming content on your smartphone.
With that being said, this isn’t any large sized smartphone and is well in the phablet territory. If you are someone who has small palms, it may be tricky to handle this device with a single hand. Unlike most smartphones that are coming out lately (including ones from Xiaomi), this phone is not going to have a notch.
To power this humongous display means it will also require some juice underneath its hood and the phone will check that off. The phone will draw power from a gigantic 5,300mAh battery unit located inside its metal body shell.
Speaking about performance, the phone will feature a Snapdragon 636 processor clocked at 1.8GHz. For multi-tasking and storage, the Mi Max 3 will come in 3 variants viz. 3GB+32GB, 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB of RAM+internal storage respectively.
For the shutterbugs, just like most smartphones coming out lately, the Mi Max 3 will also come with a dual rear camera setup. The primary camera will comprise a 12MP+5MP combination. On the software front, the smartphone will run MIUI 10 which is built on top of Android Oreo out of the box.
Finally, let’s talk about the price of the phone. Since the Mi Max 2 was priced under Rs. 15,000, its successor should be priced similarly. However, realistically speaking, since the phone is expected to have a couple of performance upgrades, it is likely to be slightly more expensive (~under Rs. 20,000).
