Xiaomi is back with the bigger and better Mi Max, and it’s called Mi Max 3. We all know about it for quite some time now, the leaks and speculations have been going quite strong lately.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is launched in China for now and its global launch is yet to be announced. True to its name, it sports a very large (for a phone) display measuring at 6.9 inches and it is an IPS LCD unit. The display throws a resolution of Full HD+ with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Another “big” highlight of the phone is its humongous 5,500 mAh of battery, which is quite literally more than confidence inspiring.
In comparison, Mi Max 3’s predecessor, Mi Max 2, has 6.4 inches of screen size and 5,300 mAh of battery. Already quite big, but of course, Xiaomi had to go bigger with the new one. Mi Max 3’s battery gets QuickCharge 3.0 as well.
Continuing with the specifications, the Mi Max 3 is powered by the Snapdragon 636 chipset and the accompanied Adreno 509 GPU. It is one of the most used mid-range processors currently. This processor is assisted by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Another option is of 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage.
The new Max is reportedly heavy on AI, which starts at the camera. The main camera is a combination of 12 MP primary + 5 MP secondary lenses, wherein, the primary lens has the aperture size of f1.9. The camera also gets dual phase detection autofocus and other typical stuff like an LED flash. The front gets a decent 8 MP camera with the aperture size of f2.0.
Of course, there’s AI inclusion. And it is said that it is a learning algorithm rather than some presets given a trendy name. The camera also carries the Face recognition system which is assisted by AI. The company says that the mechanism is designed to learn and improve overtime to keep the system secure as well as to create better and better bokeh effects. The last part is specifically for the main camera. Along with this, there are 206 scene recognition programs.
