16 July 2018

Xiaomi is announcing the Mi Max 3 on Thursday, but the company decided to go ahead and to tease the key selling points in adavance - the huge screen and massive battery. The rest of the specs were leaked in Chinese media, leaving little unknown ahead of the official event.

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 will have 6.9 screen with Full HD+ resolution and 18:9 ratio, so no notch, just a regularly thin bezel on top. The battery will be 5,500 mAh, which is an upgrade over the 5,300 mAh power cell the predecessor Mi Max 2 had.
