On Monday, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun shared three photos of the upcoming Mi Max, with colorful backgrounds. Now, Xiaomi’s official teaser says the new device will last at least a “full day” without the need to charge.
The Xiaomi Mi Max phablet will be unveiled Tuesday in China. The handset features a huge 6.44-inch display with 1,080 x 1,920 pixels resolution. Although the resolution is not very impressive, it goes without saying that the load on the battery will be less with a full HD resolution than the power-hungry QHD one.
Xiaomi has shared a teaser on its Twitter account saying the huge display of Mi Max will easily fit in denim pockets. It also said the large display feels comfortable in the hands and that the device will be able to offer at least one day of battery life, after a full charge.
As far as the rumored Xiaomi Mi Max specifications go, this phablet will reportedly come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chipset, working in tandem with a hexa-core processor, running at 1.4 GHz. The graphics side of things will be taken care of by Adreno 510 GPU.
Xiaomi will be offering two versions of the Mi Max smartphone. One will feature 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, whereas the high-end model will carry 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in storage space.
Speaking of camera configuration, the Xiaomi Mi Max is expected to sport a 16-megapixel rear-facing snapper, along with a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies. Xiaomi has reportedly housed a fingerprint scanner beneath the main camera unit.
On the software front, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS will run the handset with the company’s MIUI 8 on top of it. A 4,000 mAh battery cell will help keep the lights on.
In terms of pricing, past rumors suggested that the Xiaomi Mi Max will be made available for as low as $200-equivalent in China. Going by previous releases, third-party retailers might offer this handset in the U.S.
