After weeks of speculations, Xiaomi Mi Max 3 finally broke covers in Beijing on Thursday. It comes with major upgrades both in terms of design and also internal hardware over the predecessor Mi Max 2.

The new Mi Max 3 sports a huge 6.9-inch full HD+ LCD screen with 18:9 display ratio 2.5D curved glass screen, which not only adds value to the aesthetics of the phone design but also guarantees rich viewing experience. With a massive 5,500mAh battery, the device owners can binge watch on TV series or any high-resolution video content for more than 16 hours easily and not worry about the cell draining out anytime soon.

It also boasts Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 that enables the device fast charge from zero to full in around two hours. This is a welcome addition considering the fact that Xiaomi device houses such a big battery and if it were without the quick charging capability, it would have normally taken more than three hours.

As far as photography is concerned, Xiaomi has done a pretty good job with the Mi Max 3. It boasts feature-rich 12MP+5MP dual camera with F1.9 aperture, which guarantees really good snaps even in low-light condition. It also offers Portrait Mode that will allow users to adjust the focus on the foreground and backgrounds of the subject to get the popular Bokeh blur effect, which looks good for DPs for social media channels. On the front, it houses an 8MP snapper with F2.0 aperture and soft LED flash.

Other stipulated features include Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core CPU, Android Oreo-based MIUI software, 4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage, Bluetooth v5.0, Bluetooth and Type C USB port.
