After getting its name, Xiaomi Mi Max, confirmed via an online public poll, we saw a report which claimed that Xiaomi might be revealing a massive phablet sporting a 6.4-inch QHD screen. Soon after that, a set of images from Xiaomi’s production leaked, featuring the aforementioned gigantic device. This leak was then followed by the company’s official, first ever teaser of their Mi Max phablet. As of now, Xiaomi has announced, via its Weibo account, the official unveiling date of the handset – May 10.
Before now, we heard reports that the upcoming phablet will be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 820 while a fingerprint scanner and full network support for all Chinese carriers was also hinted. But that isn’t the case now. The device was recently spotted on GFXBench were all of its major specifications were listed.
Apparently the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max will come standard with an hexa-core 1.8 GHz CPU, more commonly knows as Snapdragon 650, instead of the previously rumored SD820 SoC. In addition to that, the smartphone will sport a 6.4-inch full HD display. Moving on to the camera department, we have a 16 megapixel rear camera and a 5MP front selfie shooter.
You can have a look at the complete listing of the benchmark test below. On the other hand, it should also be mentioned that Huawei is releasing their Honor V8 on the same day on which Mi Max will officially surface. For those who haven’t heard, the V8 will sport a 5.7-inch FullHD/QHD display and will be featured with a 2.3 GHz/2.5 GHz octa-core CPU. Moving on to the camera department, the handset will come standard with a 12 megapixel dual camera setup at the back, while an 8 megapixel camera is dedicated for selfies and video chats. Other features include 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of ROM and 3,400 mAh battery. In addition to that, the devices will be powered by the latest, Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
