If size doesn’t matter, why is the whole industry wondering how big the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max will be? Large screen lovers are said to be in for a treat, with a rumored display size of 6.4 inches, but Xiaomi is not giving us the exact details quite yet. What they are giving us is a sneak peak at the device, which is displayed poking out of a regular sized pocket.
We have seen both renders and leaked images, and while we can’t say the 6.4-inch screen size is legitimate, we can definitely tell it’s larger than the conventional phablet. MIUI continues to beat around the bush, telling us the “Mi Max is a brand new product line for Xiaomi meaning that the size of 4.7 inches , 5.0 inches, 5.15 inches, 5.5 inches and 7.9 inches are out of choice.”
There is one new piece of news coming from this teaser blog post, though. Now we know the Xiaomi Mi Max won’t have a Mi logo in the front. Not a big deal, but definitely nice to hear for those of us who worry about aesthetics.
Another rumor says it should come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, so be prepared to be blown away. And in usual Xiaomi fashion, expect it to easily undercut the competition in terms of price.
As we can see in the image, the phone will be able to fit in a pocket, but we do have to wonder just how comfortable it will be. One-handed operation is probably out of reach… literally. Unless you have huge hands or something. Would you purchase a 6.4-inch phone? I happen to like large screens, as they are easier to type on, so I would definitely consider it if all the other components are right.
