Xiaomi Mi Max 3, technical sheet of characteristics and price

26 mayo, 2021

Xiaomi presents its new phablet, the Mi Max 3. We should not confuse it with the Mi Mix 3, its high-end model. We are facing a mobile with a gigantic screen of 6.9 inches with FullHD + resolution, a huge size that has grown several tenths of an inch compared to last year thanks to the 18: 9 format that has spread throughout the Chinese manufacturer’s catalog.

Inside we have a mid-range processor accompanied by a good amount of RAM. A double camera powered by artificial intelligence has been added but above all the aspect that continues to stand out from the Mi Max 3 is its battery: 5,500 mAh to become in all probability in one of the smartphones with more autonomy on the market.

This is how Xiaomi makes money – they attract you and they catch you

Same size but 6.9 inches

My Max 3

The previous model had a 6.44 “screen but this year we grow to 6.9 inches with a FullHD + resolution in 18: 9 format. In the end we have a device with a similar size. Huge, but no more than before.

In addition to the IPS panel with a 520 nit brightness we have in a metal body with the double camera located behind in a vertical position and the fingerprint reader in the center. It is not a particularly thick terminal since its 7.99mm are in line with the rest of mobiles.

Inside we have a processor Snapdragon 636, the same one offered for example by the Redmi Note 5 but lower than that which the Mi A2 will foreseeably offer. We are accompanied by versions of 4 or 6 GB of RAM and storage that starts from 64GB and goes up to 128GB.

5,500 mAh battery to continue to stand out in autonomy


Such a large screen requires a huge battery. But fortunately the Mi Max 3 arrives with 5,500 mAh, an amount that is far from the usual 4,000 mAh in Xiaomi. With this amount, at least an autonomy of two days is expected. At least in the previous models it was like that since despite the increase in size, that gigantic battery more than compensates for the energy consumption. The battery is compatible with Quick Charge 3.0.

Android 8.1 Oreo together with the MIUI customization layer, they will be in charge of the software. A section where we will have, at least in the Chinese version, the intelligent assistant XiaoAI. For sound we have double stereo lower speaker.

12 megapixel dual camera


Another section that needed an improvement and already has it is the photographic one. In the Mi Max 3 we have a double rear camera with a 12 megapixel main sensor, five secondary sensor, f / 1.9 aperture lens, 1.4µm pixels and the ability to record video in 4K at 30fps. A considerable evolution that should compensate for one of the weakest points of the previous model.

This camera is also powered by artificial intelligence and recognition of up to 206 scenes. A function whose usefulness is relative but it is appreciated to have it.

For the front camera we have an eight megapixel sensor and f / 2.0 aperture, where also thanks to AI we will have face unlock.

Versions and price of the Mi Max 3

My Max 3 Price

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 has already been presented in China, but it will foreseeably end up reaching international markets. Available colors are black, gold and blue and its official price is 1699 and 1999 Yuan for models with 4/64 and 6/128 GB respectively. At the exchange about 216 and 255 euros.

The official price of the Mi Max 2 in Spain has been 279 euros but it is no longer available on the web, presumably to make room for this Mi Max 3.
