Xiaomi’s Mi 5 may not have been the smashing success the company would’ve been hoping for, but that surely isn’t going to deter Xiaomi.
More recently, Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Max. True to its name — especially the second half — the Mi Max is a massive phone with a 6.44-inch display, making it the largest Xiaomi phone to date.
Xiaomi execs have been teasing a device launch for the 30th of this month in India. The teasers have invariably the following words: “The next BIG thing is coming and BIGGER is definitely better! Stay tuned – 30th June 2016!”. The video title — Mi Max – The Fan — however is a bit of a giveaway.
