The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 brings in a huge display but that is what the Max series is all about. Although this time, it’s breaking all the records with a giant 6.9″ display, all thanks to the 18:9 aspect ratio minimum bezel design. Apart from that, it also features a really huge battery, 5,500mAh to be exact.

It’s a pretty similar smartphone to the Redmi Note 5, apart from the obvious display size and battery capacity.

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 features a huge 6.9″ 18:9 ratio display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels, which accounts for 350 pixels per inch. It runs on Snapdragon 636 SoC with Adreno 509 GPU. There are two variants, one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, the other with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It is a hybrid setup so if you are a dual SIM user, you might be disappointed.

The dual 12MP + 5MP camera setup on the back should deliver good bokeh effects. The main camera is a f/1.9 aperture lens while the secondary helps with depth. The camera is also capable of 4k video recording, although Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) is only supported below 1080p. The front gets a single 8MP f/2.0 1.12µm sensor.
