We haven’t seen reports about Xiaomi’s Mi Max 3 in a while. Last we heard, the company’s CEO had confirmed that the phone will be arriving in July.
It looks like the Mi Max 3 is on track for that schedule since it was recently spotted on China’s 3C certification site. The listing doesn’t offer much in the way of specs, but it does indicate that the device will feature fast charging support. An 18W charger is likely with 12V/1.5A capabilities.
The Weibo tipster who brought the page to light had a few things to say about the Mi Max 3 himself. It seems the smartphone will have a Snapdragon 710 processor at its heart. The chipset might be accompanied by 4GB of RAM to help things along.
Xiaomi may also equip the phone with a dedicated AI engine. This is not a surprise since most of its recent handsets boast of AI smarts, from the software to the camera. Speaking of photography, the device might sport a dual camera system at its back.
A previous leak had hinted that Xiaomi might go with either a single Sony IMX363 sensor or dual S5K217 + S5K5E8 Samsung sensors. The selfie snapper might be a single S5K4H7 Samsung sensor. It could be paired with a dedicated iris scanner.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Wireless Charging and Battery
There’s also plenty of evidence that the Mi Max 3 will support wireless charging. The brand already sells its own wireless charging mat, so it’s not a far-fetched possibility. As for battery life, the handset may get blessed with a huge 5500mAh battery.
The massive powerhouse is a necessity given the smartphone’s phablet size. Word on the street is that Xiaomi will be going with a 6.99-inch 18:9 screen this time around. Android 8.1 Oreo will probably run things, with MIUI on top.
