Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun recently confirmed that the company is planning a big event on May 31, where they’ll release a wide variety of products. The event will be held in Shenzhen, but there’s no word on which products will be debuting.
While we are not sure about the products, there’s one big product launch that’s confirmed by the CEO on Weibo. The mammoth-sized phablet Mi Max 3 will be revealed in July, which was earlier rumoured to launch in May.
Some reports have hinted that Xiaomi would be bringing the next flagship Mi 7 at the event, while Xiaomi recently confirmed the Mi 8th anniversary edition phone surfaced on Xiaomi’s community forum in China earlier.
Till the second iteration, Xiaomi has placed the Mi Max series under 20k price segment with sub par hardware, which usually matches the latest Redmi Note phone.
Moreover, an 18:9 display with full HD+ resolution is quite safe to assume. Further, a massive battery up to 5000mAh is most likely to land on the Max 3.
Some rumours also point towards a Qi wireless charging and Iris scanner, but it’s still too early to predict that.
Internals are likely to be similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro, but rumours suggest two different variants. Low-end could sport Snapdragon 636 and the high-end variant is said to feature Snapdragon 660. Similarly, there are said to be 4GB and 6GB RAM on board the two handsets respectively.
