Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is expected to be unveiled sometime this month but the exact launch date remains to be unknown. Lately, the smartphone is hitting the headlines quite frequently in the form of leaked images or certification listings. Following the leaked retail box image, photos of the transparent Mi Max 3 TPU cases have emerged online shedding light on the alleged design of the upcoming device.
TPU cases reveal the design
The Mi Max 3 images show that the smartphone will arrive with some aesthetic changes in comparison to its predecessor. The TPU case images show that there will be a vertical dual-camera setup at the top left corner. The fingerprint sensor seems to retain the same position as the Xiaomi Mi Max 2.
From the leaked TPU cases of the Mi Max 3, we can make out that there is a cutout for a 3.5mm audio jack and one for the IR blaster on the top edge. The right edge seems to have cutouts for the power key and volume rocker. At the bottom, it can be seen that there will be cutouts for the speaker and a USB Type-C port for charging.
On the whole, the upcoming Mi Max 3 will be a gigantic device like the previous generation models in the Mi Max lineup. Also, the major design change will be the presence of a dual-camera setup.
