Just when you thought it was safe and you no longer had to ever utter the word "phablet" again, Xiaomi introduces its latest smartphone, one that features a gargantuan screen and massive battery.
The Mi Max3 arrives with an extremely large 6.9-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, and the option of either 4GB or 6GB RAM. If you opt for the 4GB RAM model, it will arrive with 64GB of internal storage, while the 6GB RAM variant will have 128GB of internal storage. The rear will house a dual camera setup, with 12MP and 5MP sensors, while the front-facing camera will be 8MP. The rear camera will offer some AI features and will be capable of shooting up to 4K resolution video.
Now to power all of this, the Mi Max3 will be packing an extremely large 5,500mAh battery. It goes without saying but this phone should last most, if not all users, at least one full day with moderate use. The phone will be able to recharge through its USB Type-C port and security will be handled through a rear-mounted fingerprint reader. Audiophiles will be happy to know that this phone does have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Mi Max3 will be available in three colors: Meteorite Black, Dream Gold, and Dark Blue. It will be available to those in China and will start at ¥1699 or around $250 USD.
