Xiaomi is hoping a big handset is what’s needed to boost dwindling sales in China, so take a gander and let us know what you think of the Max’s hardware.
Don’t worry you haven’t missed the launch of the Xiaomi Max, but you might have missed a recent set of benchmarks which tell us what the new Xiaomi device will be packing once it launches.
The GFXbench benchmarks give us some interesting details including a 6.4-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 1.8Ghz Hexacore chipset, 2GB RAM and around 16GB internal memory for the Xiaomi Max.
From these details we can guess that the chipset in the phone will be a Snapdragon 650, and the fact the phone only has 2GB RAM and a FHD display (we were thinking 2K for such a whopper) we can assume the the Max is going to be an affordable device,=.
The benchmarks also tell us that the phone will have a 5 mega-pixel front camera, 16 mega-pixel rear and run Android 6.1.1. However there may well be another version of the phone boasting 3GB RAM in the works too according to sources.
So the Xiaomi Max is going to be some sort of supersize Redmi phone, but is this really what customers want? Personally we’re not so sure that Xiaomi have the ingredients for a good seller here, and the Xiaomi Max might follow other less successful Xiaomi phones like the Xiaomi Mi2A and the Mi4C! What do you guys think?
