This year, Xiaomi is expected to launch the successor to the Mi Max 2 phablet. While the company has yet to announce an official launch date, it hasn’t stopped the flow of leaks. Now, renders of alleged Xiaomi Mi Max 3 cases have leaked confirming a couple of important features.
The case renders, shared by Android Hits, hint at vertically aligned dual-camera setup as well as a fingerprint sensor placed at the back panel. Interestingly, the placement of the camera module is different from what we have seen in the previous leaks.
The renders also show openings for what look like a 3.5mm audio jack, the IR Blaster, and a microphone at the top edge. At the bottom are openings for the speaker grille, and USB port. Besides confirming the presence of these features, the case doesn’t really reveal much about the Mi Max 3’s design.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is again expected to be a mid-range offering boasting a massive display. Based on what we have come across before, the Mi Max 3 is likely to flaunt a bigger display compared to its predecessor. Compared to the 6.44-inch display on the Mi Max 2, the upcoming phablet could feature a 7-inch display. As is the trend, the phablet’s display could feature a tall 18:9 aspect ratio with very slim bezels on the sides.

Under the hood is likely to be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM. Making sure everything ticks will be a 5,500mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. One leak suggested that the phablet could possibly come with wireless charging support.
For security, apart from the fingerprint sensor at the back, the phablet could support iris recognition. On the software front, it is likely to run MIUI 9 based on Android Oreo.
