Mi Max sports a 6.44 inch display, a 4,850 mAh battery and yet, it's just 7.5mm thick

Xiaomi has just come up with its newest phablet which dwarfs all its siblings. The Mi Max is the company's super-sized phablet yet.

With its 6.44 inch display, it almost touches the tablet segment. As you might have already noticed, this one bears the Mi moniker unlike Redmi for other phablets which the company has in the market.

The Mi Max has pretty heavy spec sheet. It comes in three variants - 3GB/32GB, 3GB/64GB and 4GB/128GB. The 32GB variant gets Snapdragon 650 while other two come with Snapdragon 652. But what remains constant in all three variants is its whopping 4,850 mAh battery. Since it has hybrid card tray, you will have to compromise between expandable storage and dual SIM. 4G LTE connectivity goes without saying.

There's 16MP camera with dual tone LED flash and 5MP wide angle front camera. The fingerprint sensor sits on the back. Since this one is from Mi lineup, it gets special treatment too. It has unibody metal chassis, which is just 7.5 mm thick. Mi Max will run Xiaomi's new MIUI8 based on Android Marshmallow 6.0.

The pricing for its three variants is:
32GB/3GB: RMB1499 (~US$230)
64GB/3GB: RMB1699 (~US$260)
128GB/4GB: RMB1999 (~US$310)
