Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is a phone for people with enormous hands


Despite the bigger screen, the Mi Max 3 is slightly narrower than the Mi Max 2 thanks to its thinner bezels. On the front, the phablet houses 8MP camera.

Camera-wise, the Mi Max 3 comes with a (now-ubiquitous) two camera setup, allowing you to capture photos with gorgeous depth-of-field effects, bolstered by the usual AI tweaks. The battery on the phone is of 5500mAh capacity and comes with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging, along with parallel charging. There is a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone, a USB-C port on the bottom, and a 3.5mm headphone jack for good measure. All the color variants are priced the same. Storage can be expanded further via a hybrid dual-SIM slot.

The Mi Max 3 has a 5,500mAh battery which means it includes 200mAh more power than the predecessor model.

Xiaomi has also included reverse charging feature on the Mi Max 3 through which it can be used for charging other devices like phones, smartwatches, Bluetooth headsets and so on. With the China launch, though, Xiaomi has not confirmed when this phone will coming to India. All we need is to wait and see.
