Xiaomi is a company that has taken the whole world by storm. They made their debut with the Mi3 and since then, has made a place among the hearts of the community. Xiaomi is the company that broke the chains of monotony and introduced the specs that revolution the whole market. Before the introduction of the Mi phones, the entry-level smartphone segment was quite unappealing. The company skyrocketed the development is this segment by introducing way more powerful devices than anyone could ever think of. They have managed to maintain their lead, and the upcoming Mi Max 3 is the living proof. Rumored to release some time in the next year, the Mi Max packs quite a punch. It targets a little above the entry-level segment, which isn’t that big of a deal taking into consideration the specs it is offering.
Mi in a word is boringly stylish. They have implemented that same blocky look on most of their phones, but in spite of that monotonous nature, they have a decent look. The Mi Max 3 will supposedly have a metallic body and will be available in silver, black and most probably a grey variant. Although the device is supposed to have a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display, it doesn’t look that clunky. We have seen in the past how Mi phones with 6+inch screens feel quite comfortable to hold, and we are expecting something similar to the Mi Max 3. There are some bezels at the top and bottom, which is the only flaw in the device at the moment. The smartphone is also rumored to have a pixel density around the 450ppi mark and a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, which is quite good considering a screen of that size.
The hardware is among the many things that Mi has ramped up since their debut in the market. Although the Mi Max 3 doesn’t have True Octa-Core capabilities, the usual 2GHz octa-core SoC should be no problem at all. Benchmark tests of its predecessors always reached the 55k mark with ease, so it is expected for the Mi Max 3 to do the same, if not, better. The device is also rumored to have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, with external microSD support. On top of that, there is the custom MiUI which is an eye pleaser. Mi also rolls out periodic updates to keep the system up and running at all times. Xiaomi always uses the Qualcomm Chipset along with an Adreno GPU and the Mi Max 3 should be no exception. In terms of performance, Mi has always delivered consistent horsepower. All the Mi devices are very well optimized and can cheese through almost any task you can throw at it. Even multitasking and switching from apps aren’t a problem for these devices. If Xiaomi manages to incorporate all of this in their upcoming Mi Max 3, it will be yet another milestone device in their books.
The new Mi A1 has done something new with the camera that is first seen in devices at this range. Pictures taken by the camera gives off a blurred effect to anything but the subject, similar to that of a DSLR, which is a great a thing, to say the least. If the Mi Max 3 manages to include this bit technology in its 12 MP rear camera and enhance it even further, it might go on to become the best shooter in this segment. The rear camera is also supposed to have phase detection autofocus, HDR, panorama, and a dual tone rear flash. The front camera is a respectable 5 MP shooter, which should do a decent job with the selfies and whatnot.
In terms of video and audio codex, the Mi Max 3 will have support for most of the basic formats, such as MP3, MP4, WAV, eAAC+, FLV, M4A, and H.264.
The Mi Max 3 is supposed to make debut with its humongous 5300mAh battery, which should be more than enough for the whole day, even on moderate to high usage. The device will also have two sim slots and have 4G VOLTE features enabled as well.
The specs are subject to change at the time of release since this device hasn’t hit the market yet.
