The Mi Max 3 will be powered by the Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor with Kryo 260 cores and Adreno 512 GPU.

Earlier, a Chinese blog CNMO detailed the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 in December a year ago. As rumors suggested, the smartphone will be backed by a 5,500mAh non-removable battery.

Like the Redmi 5 and Redmi Note 5 series, the Mi Max 3 is also expected to adopt the new thin bezel design and support for a display with 18:9 aspect ratio.

XDA Developers came across a firmware that has a revealed a few features of the upcoming device. And consumers in China and India have received the Max 2 very well, which is now leading to the Mi Max 3.

Potential Xiaomi Mi Max 3 have been unearthed in the code of recent firmware files.

Later this year, Xiaomi will launch the Mi Max 3 smartphone as the successor to last year's Mi Max 2. Firmware files also suggest that Android 8.1 Oreo will come pre-installed on the Mi Max 3, while the company's MIUI skin will be placed on top of it.

Under the hood, the device will either have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 or the 630 chipset. The latest report also confirms the use of an 18:9 display panel, however, the firmware files do not confirm the size of the display. The report further revealed that the Mi Max 3 could feature a Sony IMX363 sensor or an S5K217+S5K5E8 Samsung dual camera module. Xiaomi has not launched a smartphone with wireless charging just yet and it joined the Wireless Power Consortium late past year. The firmware files also revealed what sensors Xiaomi plans to use for its device.

So far, a lot of the attention has been focussed on one Xiaomi device, the Mi Mix 2S. On the front, there will be a single Samsung S5K4H7 sensor. To that end, another interesting feature appears: the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 smartphone could have an Omnivision 2281 iris scanner. "The low-power, ultra-compact OV2281 leverages a 1.12-micron pixel with PureCel technology to enable accurate, reliable iris recognition for smartphones, tablets, and notebooks".

Other details revealed by the firmware include a dual-SIM card slot, support for two SD cards, an IR blaster, LED light for notifications.
