Xiaomi has just unveiled their latest affordable phablet. This is the Xiaomi Mi Max, a device with a huge 6.44-inch display. That big slate only comes in 1080p resolution, mind you, but that should be crisp enough for typical smartphone usage.
With such a big metal unibody frame to house that display, you have to expect a big battery, too — this one packs 4,850mAh of juice, which is likely to get you through a few days if you’re not being too heavy with your usage. The device isn’t exactly a show-stopper when it comes to internal power with the use of Snapdragon 600-series chipsets, but it does seem to have enough in other departments to make it worth a look.
Here’s a full look at the Xiaomi Mi Max’s specs:
