Xiaomi is reportedly gearing up to release the heavily anticipated Mi Max phablet. Only a few days ago, this device got certified by TENAA, the FCC equivalent in China.
CEO Lei Jun has now shared photos of the Xiaomi Mi Max via his official Weibo account. Going by the photos, this handset looks bigger and sleeker with less bezel on the sides. The background of the photos looks very colorful and bright.
Moving on to rumored Xiaomi Mi Max specifications, Phone Arena says this phone will come with a whopping 6.44-inch display. However, the bigger display will be complemented by a modest 1,080 x 1,920 pixel screen resolution. Under the hood, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 650 chipset will apparently work with a hexa-core processor, clocked at 1.4 GHz, to power the device.
Adreno 510 GPU will handle the graphics and the device will be backed by either 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM. Xiaomi will release two variants of the Mi Max phablet. One of them will carry 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of built-in storage combination, while the other will feature a 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of native storage capacity.
When it comes to camera configuration, the Xiaomi Mi Max smartphone is believed to sport a solid 16-megapixel rear-facing shooter, in addition to a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats. Also, a fingerprint scanner will be embedded beneath the primary camera.
Xiaomi has always been generous with regard to battery capacity. And this time as well, the company has reportedly housed a 4,000 mAh battery cell. Plus, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is expected to run the device out of the box with the company’s own MIUI 8 on top of it.
Speaking of price, rumor has it that the Xiaomi Mi Max will set the buyers back by a $200-equivalent in China. As always, third-party retailers like Honor Buy, Gear Best and others will be selling this handset internationally. This mid-ranger will be launched on May 10 at a special Xiaomi event.
