The Mi Max series turned out to be a sleeper hit for Xiaomi, and if a new rumor out of China is to be believed, the Mi Max 3 will be the company's most ambitious phablet yet. According to CNMO, the Mi Max 3 will feature a 7-inch display, considerably larger than the 6.44-inch screen we've seen on this year's Mi Max 2. To bring down the overall size and make the device conducive for everyday usage, Xiaomi is said to be offering an 18:9 panel with minimal bezels at the top and bottom.
The Mi Max 3 is also rumored to feature a dual camera setup at the back, along with a larger 5500mAh battery. One of the standout features on the Mi Max 2 is the 5300mAh battery, so the idea of a larger battery in the Mi Max 3 makes the device that much more enticing. Like this year's model, the Mi Max 3 is set to include Quick Charge 3.0.
We don't have details on memory or storage, but the Mi Max 3 will likely be offered with 3GB/4GB of RAM and at least 32GB of storage. The phone is said to be offered in two variants: a base model powered by the Snapdragon 630, and a high-end version featuring the Snapdragon 660.
Xiaomi switched to 18:9 displays with the Redmi 5 series, and it looks like the company will be offering the form factor across its entire range. Early rumors of the Mi 7 also hinted at a 6-inch 18:9 screen, with the phone slated to be the first to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845.

Google is playing the long game with its hardware company acquisitions
Why does Google keep buying companies that it doesn't always know what to do with?
At this point, Google should just launch the Pixel 4a with the Pixel 5
With delay after delay pushing back the Pixel 4a's launch into July and possibly August, it would make a lot of sense for Google to simply call it the Pixel 5a and launch it alongside the Pixel 5 in October.
