Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Release Date
The original Mi Max flagship was released back in December 2016 followed by Xiaomi Mi Max 2 in October 2017. According to that schedule, chances are higher that Xiaomi Mi Max 3 release date in Australia will be sometime in September 2018 (unofficial).
Besides, Xiaomi Mi Max 3 release date is expected in May-June 2018 thanks to Xiaomi Mi Max 3 rumours.
Usually, Xiaomi releases its flagship devices in September but doesn’t start shipping until October.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Price
A recent report suggested that Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Price in Australia will be around AU$205 which translates to CNY 1000.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Design and Display
It’s too early to discuss about Mi Max 3 features, and right now we can only feed our eyes on its rear panel, not even all of it! The phone seems huge and a dual camera is positioned horizontally on the back along with LED flash and the rear fingerprint scanner is also visible.
The major changes will reportedly be happening on its front panel. It has been rumoured that there will be a 6.99-inches display screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and hence Full HD+ resolution. The leaked image didn’t leave many details of the front side, but we can only envision it through renders.
Talking about its display performance, it’s sharp with good colour reproduction, brightness and sunlight accuracy. The viewing angles are perfect and the contrast ratio is also very good. The bigger 6.99-inches display gives you an outstanding experience when watching movies or playing games.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Camera
When it comes to Xiaomi smartphones, you can be quite sure about its camera performance. On paper, Xiaomi Mi Max 3 sports a dual 12MP sensor with aperture f/2.0. The front side, on the other hand, is taken care of by 5MP sensor with aperture f/2.0. As you’d expect, captured images are pretty awesome and stunning. The colours are beautiful with lots of details and the focus is fast as well.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 camera comes with several features such as Phase Detection Autofocus, Geo-Tagging, Touch Focus, Face Detection, Panorama and HDR.

As far as its performance is concerned, Xiaomi MI Max 3 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 Chipset paired with either 3GB or 4GB of insane RAM. The performance is butter smooth and doesn’t show a sign of lag whether you work on multiple tasks or play graphics enriched games.
