The Xiaomi Mi Max 3. TENAA

Xiaomi’s phablet fans won’t need to wait much longer as the company has confirmed the massive Mi Max 3 will launch on July 19. The company posted the announcement on its MIUI Forum, adding a teaser image in the process.

The picture confirms the 7:30 P.M. (GMT+8) kick-off next Thursday, but it also gives us a rough idea of the phablet’s size. If you’ve got huge hands or just want a huge screen, this should be for you.

We’ve heard about quite a few specs already though, owing to previous leaks and a listing on China’s TENAA regulatory body. According to TENAA, the Mi Max 3 will have a 6.9-inch full HD+ screen (18:9), paired with a massive 5,400mAh battery.

Other notable specs include 3GB to 6GB of RAM, 32GB to 128GB of expandable storage, and an unnamed 1.8Ghz octa-core chipset. The Mi Max family usually follows the Redmi Note series when it comes to chipsets, so we’re expecting the Redmi Note 5 Pro‘s Snapdragon 636 processor here.

Xiaomi’s phablet will also have a dual-camera setup (one shooter is a 12MP camera), 5MP selfie snapper, IR blaster, a rear fingerprint scanner, and Android 8.1.

We’ve also seen reports of a Mi Max 3 Pro, packing a higher end Snapdragon 710 chipset for better performance. But we’ll need to wait until July 19 for confirmation of this.
