Xiaomi released its latest smartphone from Mi Max 3 that features a 6.9-inch full screen display and a 5500mAh battery n. It is equipped with a 12MP+5MP AI dual camera, an 8MP front camera and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC. Mi Max 3 will come in Black, Gold, and Blue, and will be available in China at RMB 1699 and RMB 1999 for the 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB versions, respectively.
The 6.99-inch, 18:9 screen of Mi Max 3 has a 2160 x 1080 FHD+ resolution with a screen-to-body ratio of 86.15%—6.5% higher than Mi Max 2. This means Mi Max 3 offers a larger screen than its predecessor without significantly increasing the body size. The large screen is ideal for GPS navigation, stock trading, and office productivity apps—it’s especially convenient for tasks such as editing documents and spreadsheets.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 has a metal body with hidden antenna lines for a clean aesthetic. The back panel is tapered naturally towards the four sides, giving the body a slim profile. Thanks to the 18:9 screen aspect ratio, Mi Max 3 can be held in one hand and is very pocketable.
Mi Max 3 has the largest battery among all Xiaomi phones and offers extraordinary battery life. The 5500mAh battery can sustain up to 10 hours of non-stop gaming, 17 hours of local video streaming and 233 hours of music playback. Complementing the massive battery, Mi Max 3 supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 and parallel charging—which means multiple charging streams charge the battery at the same time—for a fast charging speed that also avoids excessive heat. A 9V/2A 18W charger is shipped with every unit that can refuel the 5500mAh battery from 0 to 71% in just one hour.
Moreover, Mi Max 3 can be used as a power bank, with an upgraded output of 5V/1.2A. This makes it almost twice as efficient as the previous generation when giving friends an emergency recharge.
The new device is optimized for popular games to smartly detect game scenes and allocate system resources to maximize performance. Mi Max 3 can run popular games such as Arena of Valor and PUBG at high FPS without lag.
Mi Max 3 is equipped with a flagship-class rear AI dual camera. The 12MP main sensor has 1.4µm large pixels that can capture more light, rendering better details and at the same time reduce noise. It is also powered by Dual PD autofocus technology that has two photodiodes per pixel to calculate the light hitting the sensor—resulting in much faster autofocusing, even in low-light conditions.
Mi Max 3 also sports the AI Scenario function, which can detect 206 scenarios in 25 categories, applying instant retouching on photos for great shots. Even with a single lens, the front 8MP camera can create a realistic depth-of-field effect thanks to AI bokeh. The camera is coupled with a soft Selfie light for taking better selfies. Mi Max 3 also offers AI Face Unlock for fast unlock.
