“Xiaomi has teased the launch of the upcoming phablet from its Twitter handle”
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3, which comes as a successor to the Mi Max 2 (review) was launched in China earlier this year in July. The smartphone is the first in the Mi Max series to come with a taller 18:9 display, fast charging, dual rear cameras, and AI capabilities. Now, if the latest tweet by the phonemaker in India is any indication, the newest phablet might soon land in the country.

The latest tweet from the brand shows the Mi Max 2 in the image. The text accompanying the image reads, “Something really BIG is coming your way!” It doesn’t take a genius to figure that Xiaomi is hinting at the launch of Mi Max 3 in India. However, the tweet doesn’t reveal other details like the date of launch and the pricing. Since the smartphone has already been launched in China, we know all details about it. It remains to be seen whether the handset maker launches both 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB configurations in India or one of them.
