The Weibo post shows the Mi Max with a metal build, a 16 MP camera on the rear and a 5 MP camera on the front. Theres also a fingerprint scanner on the rear, which seems like the only physical button present given the fact that the front panel hasn't got any.
The Mi Max will come equipped with a mammoth 6.44-inch display which shall have a pixel resolution of 1,080 x 1,920. It will run on a hexa-core Snapdragon 650 chipset at 1.4 GHz along with Adreno 510 GPU.
Tech Times has reported about the upcoming handset's GFXBench listing, wherein it showed the Mi Max to have a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. It remains to be seen just how much resolution the Mi Max will actually have as the date of its official announcement draws nearer.
Xiaomi is launching the Mi Max in two versions. The first will come with a 2 GB RAM and 16 GB ROM, while the second will offer 3 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM.
Other highlights include a 4,000 mAh non-removable battery, fingerprint sensor, 4G LTE with VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, GLONASS, 3G and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. Xiaomi is also expected to announce the MIUI 8, its next mobile OS version.
Initially, the company has also planned to launch the Mi Band 2 fitness tracker alongside the Mi Max, but decided to postpone the announcement of the wearable because of manufacturing-related issues. CEO Lei Jun said that there will be at least a month-long delay in the official unveiling of its next Mi Band.
The upcoming Mi Max is speculated to retail at about $200. The company already confirmed in a tweet that the anticipated Mi Max is indeed coming. It also touted the handset to fit well in one's pocket despite the large display.
