Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Rumors, Leaks, Expected Price in India and Release Date
Updated on 2018-02-23 by Geetansh Arora
Xiaomi has launched 2 phablets till now in India. The Mi Max was launched in 2016 and it had a large 6.4-inch display. The Mi Max 2 came out last year in 2017 with the same 6.4-inch display. This year Xiaomi is taking it one step ahead by increasing the display size to 7 inches. The new display will have the latest 18:9 aspect ratio with thin bezels so overall size of the device will remain same.
Xiaomi will also be launched Mi Mix 2S and Mi 7 at MWC this year. Both phones will run on Snapdragon 845 and will have blazing fast performance.
Mi Max 3: What's new this year?
As we said above, the display is getting an upgrade. The phone will have 7-inch full view with18:9 aspect ratio and Full HD Plus resolution. Other reports have suggested that the battery capacity will be 5500 mah which is massive. Some recent rumors suggest that the phone will support wireless charging as well. If that's true then we might see a glass back on Mi Max 3 as a metal frame cannot support wireless charging. Another challenge for Xiaomi will be to speed up wireless charging because the battery size is already insane.

The chipset will be Snapdragon 636 which we have seen recently in Redmi Note 5 Pro. The Snapdragon is a very powerful chipset. It scores around 110000 on Antutu benchmarks which are 80% higher than the score of Snapdragon 625 which was there in Mi Max 2. Almost double processing power will surely enhance the overall experience.
