Just hours ago we saw a report emerged, claiming that Xiaomi might be revealing a massive phablet sporting a 6.4-inch QHD screen. The name of the alleged handset, Xiaomi Max, was chosen by the company via a public poll. In addition to that, previous rumors suggested that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 820. Moreover a fingerprint scanner and full network support for all Chinese carriers was also hinted. Meanwhile, a set of images from Xiaomi’s production leaked, featuring the aforementioned gigantic device. Note that we still haven’t received information regarding the resolutions of the screen.
As you can observe in the images above, the Xiaomi Max is nothing less than massive device with slim side bezels. In addition to that, the aesthetics of capacitive keys at the bottom, earpiece and sensor array further endorse that the smartphone is from Xiaomi. Another important thing to notice is the lack of a physical home button, embedded with a fingerprint scanner. Thus, if the rumors mentioned earlier have some credibility, the fingerprint scanner will be placed at the rear side of the smartphone, similar to the ones featured in Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3 and Mi 4s.
As far as the announcement of the handset is concerned, various sources claim that the unveiling might take place somewhere in May. Unfortunately, we haven’t yet received any other solid rumors yet, however we can expect them to start flowing in soon Xiaomi have already set up the official Xiaomi Max Weibo account. So stay tuned for the latest news.
