Xiaomi launched Mi Max 2 in India last year for Rs 16,999 with a huge 5300mAh battery and a massive 6.44-inch Full HD display. We already know that the company is working on its successor which is dubbed as Xiaomi Mi Max 3. Recently, a leakster leaked the specification sheet of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 along with its pricing on Chinese microblogging website, Weibo.
Now a live image of Xiaomi Mi Max 3 has leaked (via OnPhones) which reveals its back showing the dual camera set up. However, this is in contrary to the recent leak showing the single camera setup only at the back. The new leaked image only shows the upper portion of the rear of the device. It shows dual camera setup with dual LED flash at the back and fingerprint scanner. We can also see the antenna lines on the top of the device. The power button and the volume rockers are placed on the right of the device.
The report further says that the Mi Max 3 will be powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC and not the Snapdragon 635 which was reported in the earlier leak. Apart from that, all other rumoured specs remain the same.
The earlier leak claimed that the smartphone will be powered by Snapdragon 635 which is said to be manufactured with 14 nm process technology and an enhanced version of the Snapdragon 625. For the camera, the Mi Max 3 is said to boast a 12-megapixel rear camera and a front-facing camera of 5-megapixel for selfies and video calls. The Mi Max 3 will reportedly be running on Android Nougat that will be skinned with MIUI 9.
The Mi Max 3 will come in two variants – 3GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 128GB internal storage. For the battery, the device is said to sport a huge 5,500 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology and reverse charging as well so that it can charge other devices connected to it.
As far as the pricing is concerned, the leak reveals that the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 base variant will be priced at 1,699 Yuan which is approximately Rs 16,842.
Keeping in mind that the launch timing of the first two Mi Max devices was in the mid of the year, the Mi Max might also launch in the middle of 2018. So there’s a probability that the Mi Max 3 might be officially announced in June 2018.
