Xiaomi Max could be Xiaomi’s answer to the Oppo R9 Plus

Xiaomi have been taking a different approach with the launch of the Xiaomi Max, and we have already seen a few videos featuring the phone. A new video today touches on more features of this new phablet.

From leaks and videos we have already seen that the Xiaomi Max will have a metal body, rear fingerprint scanner and likely run a Snapdragon 650 chipset, so what new details do we discover today?

Well a new video mentions that the Xiaomi Max will focus on large memory and camera performance. The thin phablet is set to have the “largest memory of the world” says the new video which sounds a little overblown to us, but might mean at least 128GB internal memory on the device.

The same video also points out that the camera will be a major focus of the device. We already know that the rear camera will be a 16 mega-pixel unit, but could the phone also support the same 4 axis OIS system as the Xiaomi Mi5?

With a big screen a focus on camera performance and a thin metal body, the Xiaomi Max is starting to sound like Xiaomi’s rival to the Oppo R9, which might explain the higher than expected 2199 Yuan price point leaked yesterday.

    Largest memory or largest flash storage? Companies get the two of those mixed up all the time. So it will either be 6GB RAM or 128GB (maybe even 256) ROM.

      Ya. I think 128 GB, what is mentioned here seems to be wrong, as many phone have 128 GB ROM. If they claim to be having the highest ROM, then my guess is 256 GB ROM.

        ROM = Read Only Memory, so cannot write anything

        Supposed to be RAM (Random Access Memory)

        Or maybe i am somehow confuse ?

          My dear, In phone specifications the internal storage is always referred as ROM.

        Technically they wouldn’t be wrong if it was 128 as that is currently the largest storage space available.

      I’m wondering what’s the soc they used to achieve 128gb memory.
      Sd820 have dual lpddr4 memory controller, right now the largest memory available is from micron technology which is 16gb. So it would be 2x16gb = 32gb max.
