The Mi Max 3 could feature a Snapdragon 636, a 3.5mm jack, and no notch
A while ago, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun confirmed that the Mi Max 3 was set to be launched sometime in July. The device has made its way to TENAA right on time, giving us a clearer idea of what we’ll be getting from it when it's unveiled.
Going by the TENAA listing, the Max 3 will sport a 6.9-inch FHD+ LCD display. This is a pretty significant jump in screen real estate from the Max 2 that had a 6.44-inch display. In fact, at this point, we’re more inclined to call the Max 3 a tablet instead of a smartphone or phablet. Of course, adopting the 18:9 ratio ensures that the Max 3 has a similar feel in hand to the Max 2—due to smaller bezels and an elongated aspect ratio.
The Max 3 is listed with an octa-core SoC with a 1.8 GHz clock speed, which could very well be the Snapdragon 636. Most rumors till now have touted a Snapdragon 660, so this is slightly disappointing. It will likely come in memory configurations of 3/32 GB, 4/64 GB, and 6/128 GB. It’s listed with a 5400 mAh battery, up from the 5300 mAh unit on the Mi Max 2.
On the camera end, the listing also indicates a 12 MP + 5 MP dual rear camera setup, and an 8 MP selfie shooter. Thankfully, it features a 3.5mm headphone jack.
