In terms of memory, the device is expected to be announced in three variants - 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage. While the 3GB RAM variant of the smartphone is listed at $189.99 (Rs.13,000 approx.), the 4GB RAM variant of the smartphone has been listed at $209.99 (Rs.14,400 approx.). The software, however, will be very different.
Xiaomi confirmed that the Mi Max 3 will get a 6.9-inch LCD screen with FHD capabilities and 18:9 ratio plus thin bezels, and fans will be happy to know that the trendy notch is not a feature. Newest leaks also confirmed that the SoC powering the handheld will indeed be the Snapdragon 636 with eight Kryo 260 cores running at 1.8 GHz, which seems a bit underwhelming for a device this large.
Coming to the camera department, the Xiaomi Mi A2 is expected to feature a dual camera setup at the back consisting of a 12MP primary camera with Sony IMX486 sensor, 1.25μm pixel size, f/1.75 aperture and a secondary 20MP camera with Sony IMX376 sensor, f/1.75 aperture and 1.0um pixel size. The handset will also come with artificial intelligence (AI) and AI Portrait mode. Also retained is a 12MP + 5MP dual-camera setup and a front-facing 5MP selfie shooter.
The next Android One device will be the Mi A2 which is expected to be based on the Mi 6X. The smartphone will skip the company's MIUI custom Android ROM. Some of the other key features of the Mi A2 Lite include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, AI Face Unlock, and an IR blaster.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is now available in India, starting at Rs 13,999.
