Xiaomi Max 3 To Sport SD660, Wireless Charging & Iris Recognition Feature


In a couple of days at MWC 2018, we will probably see multiple devices with the flagship SD845 chipset and amongst them will be Xiaomi Mi 7 and Mi MIX 2S. Nevertheless, not every smartphone user will be able to afford flagship devices and that is why it is pertinent for manufacturers to make provision for top-notch mid-range devices. Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is one of such expected mid-range smartphones and exclusive information from XDA developers suggests that this smartphone chip will be the king of mid-range smartphones – Snapdragon 660.

In addition, the reports also suggest that the battery capacity will be up to 5500mAh thus we are looking at a minimum of 15 hours average working time. Anything less than an 18:9 aspect ratio display would have been disappointing for this huge 7-inch device.

Surprisingly, the “wireless charging” parameter appeared in the firmware. This feature is expected in flagship Xiaomi Mi 7 but the Max 3 will sport same. This implies that the back of the Xiaomi Max 3 will be designed to suit the wireless charging feature probably with a glass material and the industrial design has to be adjusted as well.

A configuration file also revealed what the camera department of this device will look like. The rear will most likely come with a dual camera setup with either an IMX363 from Sony or an S5K217+S5K5E8 Samsung dual camera setup. For selfies, S5K4H7 from Samsung will do the job but it seems like an auxiliary imaging sensor – an iris scanner will be available too. This sensor will be OmniVision 2281 which “leverages a 1.12-micron pixel with PureCel technology to enable accurate, reliable iris recognition for smartphones, tablets, and notebooks”

The firmware suggests the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 will run on Android 8.1 Oreo.This device still retains the IR blaster, memory card expansion, support for aptX HD high-fidelity Bluetooth audio transmission.

    I’m waiting for this phone… However, I wish it would have a 16:9 ratio and not 18:9. I previously had a 7″ phone and in terms of ergonomics the length is more problematic than the width – hence I prefer a 16:9 ratio which gives more screen real estate, less length and is more suitable for any kind of media consumption.

      I agree 18/9 is garbage…way too narrow.

        I would like that they keek 16:9 aspect ratio and shrink the display down to 6″.

      Lol I am holding it, not looking at it & it would be much easier doing so if it whose narrower for 7~8 mm. & suggested shrink from 6.44″ to 6″ wouldn’t hurt viewing nor operational experience, it would just make it much more functional especially when it comes to one hand use.

      There is no way I’m going use a screen smaller than 6’44 screen! My second phone is a mediapad x2 7″ of pure hapiness,, I had a bluboo maya I gave it to my wife. Once you go big you never go back.
