After introducing Redmi 6 Pro and the Mi Pad 4, Xiaomi is all set to launch a new smart-phone i.e. Mi Max 3 on July 3. However, details of the phone have already been leaked ahead of its launch.

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 flaunts a metal uni-body design which is similar to the Max 2, and also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, which the company claims can unlock the device in less than 0.5 seconds. Also, owing to its 7-inch FullHD+ IPS display, the device can be considered a phablet.

According to the leaks, the Mi Max 3 runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. It sports a 12MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 5MP front-facing camera. The device is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 660 processor and 4GB RAM. It has 64GB of internal storage space which can be expanded via a microSD card.

Connectivity options include 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 5,500mAh battery. The 64GB variant of the device is expected to cost around Rs 17,999, and will come in gold and matte black color variants.
