Xiaomi Mi Max boasting of the company’s new version of the Android-based software, the MIUI 8 was launched in China.

Xiaomi Mi Max is bound to stand out because of its screen size; it is a massive device sporting a 6.44-inch screen. The device is much larger than the current Xiaomi’s 5.7-inch Mi Note Pro, the 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus or the 6-inch Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro, as noted by PC Magazine. The device features a neat metal chassis that weighs 203 grams and is 7.5mm sleek. The insides reveal the presence of a Snapdragon 650 chipset coupled with Adreno 510 GPU and a 4850mAh battery.

As reported by Android Police, buyers have the choice between three variants including one with a Snapdragon 650 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, the other with a Snapdragon 652 chipset, 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. The last variant also hides a Snapdragon 652 chipset under its hood but features 4GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. This dual SIM smartphone is fitted with a 16MP camera on its rear panel along with a fingerprint sensor on the back. The front-facing camera is a 5MP one with 85-degree wide-angle lens. The latest MIUI 8 version on the device layered with the flavour of Marshmallow, brings in some neat upgrades. Users will be treated to a new design and an upgraded gallery as well as Notes apps.

The Mi Max will begin to roll-out sometime next week in China and will be available at a starting price of approx. RMB1499 (AU$313) with the amount going up to approx.  RMB1999 (AU$418) for the variant sitting at the top of the line. This dual SIM, all-metal, phablet-sized device is sure being made available at a neat price. However, it isn’t known at this point in time whether the Xiaomi Mi Max will be heading west but it seems unlikely. However, keep checking back for further updates on this front.
