Xiaomi is about to release a phablet that could be bigger than its current 5.7″ Mi Note. On their official Weibo page, they have officially named the new device as the Mi Max (Xiaomi Max), a smartphone that comes with an ever larger display.
About a week back, it was rumoured that Xiaomi is working on a large screen device. A photo of an alleged front panel suggests a large 6.4″ screen and it has the standard 3 capacitive buttons at the front. Like the Redmi Note 3, it is likely that the Mi Max will feature a fingerprint scanner that’s mounted at the back.
In terms of specs, the Mi Max is likely to run on the latest Snapdragon 820 processor, similar to its compact Mi 5 flagship. From the teaser above, Xiaomi hints that despite its mammoth size, it should be able to fit comfortably in your front jean pocket. If the 6″ Huawei Mate 8 isn’t big enough, the Mi Max could be your cup of tea and it is expected to be launched officially in May.
