The Xiaomi Max has been shown off an a video teaser trailer showing that the phablet really is a massive device.

The video, shot in a traditional Chinese setting, shows a woman holding the massive phone giving us a good first look at the device before it officially launches.

Eagle eye’d viewers of the video (here) should be able to make out a few details of the Xiaomi Max which includes a metal body, fingerprint scanner on the rear and main camera in the top left corner. In fact the rear looks like a larger version of the Redmi Note 3 with less of a curved design to it.

Seeing the phone from the front we can see that the design has narrow bezels on the sides, chin and forehead, and while the above image makes it seem there are no black bezels this second images seems to suggest that the video has been altered to enhance the look of the new phone.

From what we have seen so far from leaks, the Xiaomi Max will be a 6.44-inch phone 1920 x 1080 resolution display, Snapdragon 650 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, 5 mega-pixel front camera and 16 mega-pixel camera rear. It appears that the phone is aimed at female users in Asia who tend to like larger screens, camera hardware but are less interested in performance.

Pricing for the Xiaomi Max is expected to be around 1299 Yuan.

    The specs are not impressive. Anything without 3GB+ Ram for MIUI isn’t worth buying, given the ridiculous performance hog it is (currently using).
    SD 652 + 3GB Ram would have been an ideal edition.

      Most people who import Xiaomi don’t keep MIUI on it.

        Many people buy it for MIUI and many people put MIUI on other phones.

          Most don’t… importers liked it because it had an unlocked bootloader and when they locked it, they had massive outrage.

        My dear Mr. Yasir

        Please do not worry, we want to introduce a new line of devices. This phone will have good specs, a big high quality screen all that at a very competitive price. 90% of smartphone users dont need that Xiaolong 820, people (including Miself) can live good with teh dear 650. As I, the chairman always say: Always believe something wonderful is about to happen. Greetings from the beloved.

          What about those photoshopped black borders?

            If the phone will come out with those Elephone bezels and we’ll find out they Photoshopped that commercial then they will lose me as customer for good.

    I don’t get this idea of a huge phone with low specs.

    Well… Elephone uses Photoshop, Xiaomi uses After Effect. If a company has to resort to lying and cheating, then it’s a product not to be trusted.

    If really got black border then hopefully Mi MAX have the gray color casing or any really dark color.
    Becoz using white casing will look horible with those black border.
    But again it is time for XIaomi to rethink about hardware spec that differentiate Mi MAX with Redmi Note 3 pro. Becoz if only screen size different then not much people will interested to buy the bigger screen with same exact spec.
    So yes i also agree that 3GB + SD652 is the best config for Mi Max then probably they can sell with a bit more expensive than redmi note 3 pro. But again i said A LITTLE BIT more expensive. maybe another $10-$20 then it is good for me to buy Mi MAX
