Xiaomi has shared a teaser image of the upcoming Mi Max phablet which shows the handset partially peeping out of a denim pocket, implying that the device is pocket-friendly and yet, big enough to have a phenomenal viewing experience.
Earlier rumors suggested this handset would feature a large 6.4-inch display. Now that the teaser is out and the device fits inside a pocket, it seems the earlier rumor about the screen size was wrong. The teaser image of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max phablet can be checked out at MIUI.
Going by the teaser image, unlike other Xiaomi devices, the upcoming phablet will not feature a Mi logo up front. In addition, a new “Baymax-style design” can be seen in the overall camera arrangement and the earpiece, GSM Arena noted.
Also notable is the thick bezel on the handset, which indicates the Mi Max may not be a high-end handset. It may be assumed that the device will be an upper-mid-range device, due to the fact that its rumored specifications point to a solid device.
Past rumors suggested that this handset will have a QHD resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. Under the hood, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset is believed to power this phablet, according to Phone Arena. Similar to the Xiaomi Mi 5, this handset is expected to come with a fingerprint scanner onboard.
Xiaomi’s “Mi Max” is a new series under the company brand. Xiaomi has two other lines as well — the “Mi” and “Redmi” series.
So far, there is no credible information available to ascertain the release date, key configurations or price of the Xiaomi Mi Max phablet.
