News Xiaomi Mi Max 3: Display giant with Snapdragon 710 CPU in July?

There are two types of fans of display sizes for smartphones. One of them likes it as compact as possible, for the others it can’t be big enough. If you are part of the second camp, you should be happy about the next release of Xiaomi. In July we expect the Xiaomi Mi Max 3.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 already in July

Lei Jun, the Xiaomi CEO, has already officially confirmed that a Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is to come. In the run-up to the Xiaomi Mi 8 launch event, he denied that the Mi Max 3 will be released at the end of May, but a release in July this year would be realistic. Part of this rumour mill are now the first visual publications of the 3C authority. The 3C authority or the China Compulsury Certification certificate (CCC certificate) is comparable with the CE mark known in Europe. There the device with the model number M1807E8S appeared, which apparently reflects the Xiaomi Mi Max 3.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 3C Certification

Already some months ago firmware was leaked, which confirmed the existence of a Mi Max 3. This provided information that said it had an 18:9 aspect ratio but no headphone jack. The CCC certificate also provides information about the charging speed of the smartphone. It supports 5V 3A Quick Charge. In addition, more leaked pictures from the production site show that the Max in Mi Max 3 probably stands for the maximum size. Since Xiaomi now uses very thin screen edges, a display size of 6.99 inches is even assumed.

The picture also shows a thin screen border at the bottom and a small cutout at the top of the display. Either the front camera moves down like on the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S or maybe even up into a mini notch. The question of other hardware remains just as questionable. Several voices claim that the processor was chosen for the Snapdragon 710. It is already being used in the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE and would be a good choice. Alternatively, the Snapdragon 660 would be a good choice, which Xiaomi also uses in the Xiaomi Mi 6X.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Case

The design of the back, on the other hand, seems already confirmed. This reminds us of almost all current Xiaomi smartphones like the Redmi Note 5 Vertical Dual Camera in the upper left corner and the fingerprint sensor on the back. What kind of battery is under the hood also remains to be seen. With such a large display, however, the capacity must also be correspondingly high.


The information situation is still sparse, but we know from the past that the leaks and rumours often, if not always, come true. If this were the case, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 could also settle in the upper middle class. The transition between smartphone and tablet would be smooth, but also raises the question for us about the also announced Xiaomi Mi Pad 4.

What do you think of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3? Would a 7 inch display be too big for you?
