XIAOMI one of the most powerful names when it comes to the android business is set to release it’s newest “BABY” the ” XIAOMI MI MAX “
We now have official specs and a picture of the device as well as prices for all three versions. Checkout what we know so far about the Xiaomi Mi Max.
Xiaomi Mi Max price and release date
The lowest cost version of the Redmi Note 3, another Xiaomi phablet, was around $168. But according to the official Xiaomi Twitter account, the Xiaomi Mi Max lowest cost version will be more expensive at $230 with two other versions costing $260 and $300 (more on the versions in the specs section). This is lower Xiaomi’s newest flagship, the Mi 5, was released at $410.
The Xiaomi Mi Max will be released tomorrow, May 10 in China and we will report any details that come from the event. Though we don’t have any information on an exact release date, we will tell you as soon as we find out.
According to the leak site GizChina, Xiaomi polled fans to determine what its newest phablet would be called. The possibilities to choose from were: Xiaomi Pro, Xiaomi Plus, Xiaomi Big and Xiaomi Mi Max. Since Pro is already in use in a Xiaomi device it is probably too similar. Plus is used in a number of different devices from other manufacturers. That left only Big and Max as natural choices and Max ultimately won out.

Xiaomi Mi Max specs
According to a tweet from the official Xiaomi Twitter account, the Xiaomi Mi Max will be able to get a full day of use without a charge. This is nothing special, even for a phablet, but the battery is going to be 4,850 mAh which is sizeable. I expect a battery this size to last longer than a full day, especially when you consider the specs.
The Xiaomi Mi Note display was 5.7 inches but the Xiaomi Mi Max is going to be even larger at 6.4 inches. The Mi Note had a 1080p IPS LCD display and its flagship Mi 5 had a similar screen.
Xiaomi confirmed many of the rumors previously reported by AndroidPIT but there are a few differences. Official tweets show three versions and not two: a 32 GB device equipped with the Snapdragon 650 processor backed up with 3 GB RAM costing around $230, a 64 GB variant with the Snapdragon 652 chipset backed with 3 GB RAM costing $260 and a 128 GB version with the Snapdragon 652 processor powered by 4 GB RAM priced at around $300.
The Xiaomi Mi Max will come in three different colors: silver, gold and grey. The body will be metal with a flat back and sharper corners. There are capacitive buttons and the power button and volume rockers are on the side. You can see the first official picture of the Xiaomi Mi Max below.
