Xiaomi Thinks Phablets Are Still Cool, Launches a 6.4″ Mi Max
Just as most smartphone makers started to limit the screen sizes of their phones, Xiaomi has released a massive 6.4″ Phone in China today.
The Phone is much larger than Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S7 Edge and is even bigger than the ridiculously big 6″ Nexus 6P.
Screen size is not the only USP here though, the Phablet has a full unibody metal design and a whooping 128 GB internal space on the top tier model. Xiaomi Mi Max is available in 3 versions differing in their horsepower and ranging from 3GB upto 4 GB of RAM at the highest end model.
All variants are powered by a Snapdragon 650 Processor and a Adreno 510 GPU. The rear of Xiaomi Mi Max has a 16 MP Shooter and a fingerprint sensor. On the battery department, the Chinese phone maker has added a 4850 mAh battery that should be enough for 14 hours of video streaming.
There are some software tweaks too
Although most people will only recognize the phone from its gigantic screen size, Xiaomi has also added some software perks on the Mi Max. The Phablet run on MIUI 8, a heavily modified version of Google Android. IT has support of cloned apps and settings for running multiple accounts on one app.
Other than this, the ROM also adds some better screenshot taking abilities. Such as taking screen shots of Longer webpages and apps.
Xiaomi Mi Max’s Pricing and availability
Mi Max is set to be on sale from 17th may in China, there is no official word on when (and if) the phone will be made available for sale in other countries. The lowest spec’ed Phablet version costs almost $230 going upto $300 for the top tier model.
Its really hard to use a 6.4″ phone and in most cases, only people who love to watch videos and play games may like a phone with this large screen size.
