The Xiaomi Mi Max launches May 10

xiaomi max 2016 teaser

After dropping some teasers recently, Xiaomi has just announced that it will be launching its Mi Max and their new MIUI 8 interface this May and they want some fans to get in on the action.

Xiaomi is set to launch some new products and they’re actually opening it up to Mi Fans worldwide. That is, eight lucky fans that will be flown in from around the globe to attend the launch in China on May 10th.

Interestingly, the Honor V8 is also launching on the same day, albeit with a bit less fanfare.

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.

The deadline for application is the 27th April so if you want to try your luck, head on over here and submit your application!
