The mid-tier Xiaomi Mi 8 SE has the distinction of being the world’s first smartphone to sport Qualcomm Snapdragon 710. And soon, it may not be the only Xiaomi unit to use the new chipset.
A device with model number M1807E8S, believed to be the Xiaomi Mi Max 3, has been given the China Compulsory Certification, popularly known as 3C Certification.
Based on the listing spotted on the 3C website, Inventec Appliances (Jiangning) Corporation was tasked to make the phone. It also reveals that the Mi Max 3 supports 5V DC 3A/9V DC 2A/12V DC 1.5A up to 18W fast charging.
No key specs may have been revealed, but word has it that the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is powered by the 710 processor that was announced end-May, about the same time the MediaTek Helio P22 became official.
As we reported earlier, the 710 has two cores of Kryo 360 Cortex A75 clocked at 2.2GHz and six cores of Kryo 360 Cortex A55 with a 1.7GHz processing speed. It brings premium features to the midrange category. To give you an idea of how it supposedly performs vis-a-vis the Snapdragon 660, refer to the image below.
That’s a slide from Xiaomi, so we suggest that you don’t treat that as a bible until you get to test Snapdragon 710-based devices.
Other alleged specs include a 6.99-inch IPS display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, up to 128GB of native memory, Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 10, and a 5,500mAh battery with support for Qi wireless charging. We won’t be surprised if that last bit is true, considering that the smartphone is part of a lineup that boasts big batteries.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is also said to have vertically arranged dual cameras and a fingerprint sensor at the back.
The successor to 2017’s Mi Max 2 is already confirmed to be launched in July. This means that we’ll know if the things we’ve seen thus far are right about a month from now.
