Xiaomi Mi Max 2

Moving on, the report highlights that Xiaomi Mi Max 3 could feature a Sony IMX363 sensor or an S5K217+S5K5E8 Samsung dual camera module. The company is also expected to show off a revamped Mi Mix 2 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC). The smartphone will house a massive 5,5000 mAh battery and Xiaomi will introduce the wireless charging in the Mi Max lineup. The Mi Max 3's firmware info was obtained by FunkyHuawei.club, same goes for the other two Xiaomi-branded smartphones that were mentioned.

The folks at XDA Developers recently got hold of the official firmware file for the upcoming Mi Max 3 phone and they have unearthed some key details about this upcoming phone. To make things interesting, firmware files do confirm that the Mi Max 3 will sport wireless charging. The firmware files reveal that the device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. This may not be too much of a surprise, considering that Xiaomi did join the Wireless Power Consortium (WPS) previous year, but pretty much everyone though that wireless charging is reserved for the company's high-end devices, like the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 7 which will nearly certainly ship with such a feature.

XDA reports that within the MIUI Keyguard APK, it discovered strings related to wireless charging and strings that tell whether charging has stopped and if yes, whether it is because of the device's position from the base of the charger. The report also suggests that the phone will feature wireless charging and IRIS scanning support. The firmware files also revealed what sensors Xiaomi plans to use for its device. The first phone to feature it could be the Mi 7 and the next one could be the Mi Max 3.

Talking about the selfies, the Mi Max 3 sports a single S5K4H7 sensor from Samsung. The firmware reveals that the sensor used here is the OmniVision 2281 which offers iris recognition for smartphones.

Among other specifications, the Mi Max 3 will have IR blaster, dual-SIM support, microSD card slot, and notification LED. Moreover, the Chinese company will upgrade audio features with support for Qualcomm aptX and aptX HD Bluetooth audio codecs. This is unusual as Xiaomi generally keeps the mid-range devices very simple with no bells and whistles.
