Xiaomi Unveils 6.4-Inch 'MiMax' Phablet, Its Largest Yet

...

"Go big or go home" might be Xiaomi's new mantra.

The Chinese company on Tuesday introduced its largest phablet yet: Mi Max, which sports a monster 6.44-inch screen. To put that in perspective, the Mi Max dwarfs Xiaomi's 5.7-inch Mi Note Pro, Apple's 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus, and the 6-inch Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro.

Along with its big screen, the Mi Max has a metal body measuring 7.5mm thin and weighing in at 203 grams. On the inside, the features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 or 652 processor, up to 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage with support for MicroSD cards, and a 4850mAh battery that should give you a full day of juice, according to Xiaomi.

Other features of this dual SIM handset include a 16-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front shooter with an 85-degree wide-angle lens for selfies and video chats, a fingerprint sensor for easy unlocking, and 4G LTE support.

The handset runs Xiaomi's Android Marshmallow 6.0-based MIUI 8 operating system, which boasts a new design and upgraded Gallery and Notes apps.

The Mi Max is slated to go on sale in China next week; it's available in several different configurations with pricing starting at 1499 Chinese Yuan (about $230).

If you live in the US, this is all just noise. PCMag's Lead Mobile Analyst Sascha Segan says there is "zero" chance this phone will be available in the US any time soon. "Xiaomi is so firm about not selling phones in the US that it slapped down US Mobile," a small carrier that would have been the first to sell Xiaomi's handsets here, Segan points out.
