The Xiaomi Mi 7 is surely one of the most anticipated smartphones apart, but the Mi Max 3 is no less in terms of popularity. We already know that the smartphone is in works for sometime with rumours surfacing earlier this year, which included wireless charging, an iris scanner, dual camera and more. The company is planning to launch the device by the end of next month in China.
On Wednesday, the rumours were further intensified as the TPU case of Mi Max 3 surfaced on Alibaba’s website. From the images, it looks like the device will arrive with a dual camera coupled with a fingerprint scanner at the rear. The inclusion of a fingerprint means there won’t be a face unlock, which is seen as a growing trend in mid range smartphones.
There are three circular openings at the top of the case, one for the headphone jack, the other for the IR blaster. We don’t know what the third one is for as of now. What makes the case different from Redmi Note 5 pro cases are that it features headphone jack on top, but Redmi Note 5 Pro headphone jack is down below. Also, the TPU case suggests that it’s design could be similar to Mi Max 2 and the only major upgrade in terms of design might be the inclusion of a dual camera at the rear.
On the hardware front, the phone is expected to come with a mega 6.99 inch Full HD display and a 5500 mAh battery. As of the processor, it’ll be either of Snapdragon 636 or Snapdragon 660.
The phone will reportedly run on Android Oreo8.1 which will be skinned with MIUI 9, just like every other Xiaomi phone . To add to the excitement, Mi is bringing it in two varients, a 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage and a 4GB RAM and 128GB varient, there might even be a 6GB RAM & 64GB internal storage variant of the phone just like the Note 5 Pro.
