Xiaomi Max: Survival format phablet coated metal and barely frames

Xiaomi Max

So far this year we have seen that some manufacturers have opted for compact terminals with respect to their predecessors, but that does not mean there is no room for large ones. At least that is warning us Xiaomi especially since a few days ago with teasers smartphone introduced today: the Xiaomi Max.

A new smartphone that is placed on the ground phablet with 6.44 inches as we saw in the latest leaks coming from the certifier Chinese TENAA. What we also saw anticipation is that the Chinese manufacturer bet again for the metal to cover the entire back of this giant.

Seizing inside and outside

Something that stands out at first glance is the use of frontal having this panel 6.44 – inch IPS LCD viewing subpar side frames and upper and lower both leave just enough to hold buttons, speaker, front camera and sensors (leaving the fingerprint reader on the back). Thus, there is a screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a density of 344 pixels per inch with a screen-frontal ratio nothing more and nothing less than 76%.

Yes, but the terminal stands out for the size (which as we have highlighted themselves up humorously), what they care are the dimensions and the final weight. The Xiaomi Max has a thickness of 7.5 mm and a final weight of 203 grams, very close to the figures that has one of its main rivals, the Samsung Galaxy A9.

As we saw already in filtration, Mi Max mount a Snapdragon 650 GPU Adreno 510being the most basic option, as there will be two models with Snapdragon 652 (the same riding another large, the Oppo R9 Plus). Thus, Xiaomi also bet big with up to4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, which is the configuration that goes with the Snapdragon 652 along with 3 GB and 64 GB of storage, based on the 3GB RAM and 32 GB in smaller configurations (with the Snapdragon 650).

Fortunately, the information was wrong about the battery. This finally is 4850 mAh and not of 4,000 or 4,500 mAh as noted; being above the average terminals of these dimensions usually incorporate (the Huawei P8 Max is 4360 mAh and 6.8 inches, for example).

Once confirmed its characteristics and data sheet is Xiaomi Mi Max…

A distributed prominence

While it is not exclusive to this phone, which has also taken much of the role in the presentation is the new version of the software from the house, MIUI 8. But as regards the Xiaomi Max, what we have seen is that there are some features of software that has focused on a more comfortable as a button or mode shortcuts to be able to use one – handed use.

As for the terminal itself, which has passed very unnoticed (and on other occasions has been the center of attention) it has been the audio and cameras. We have not seen, for example, including features like image stabilizer or flash in the front chamber, although both have opening f / 2.0. Thus, what is most remarkable of Max is the great use of front and a promising autonomy, with the lure of fast charging Quick Charge 3.0 that will have Snapdragon 652 models.

It is recalled that at least in this first version of Xiaomi Max covers the bands 1, 3 and 7 connection 3G / 4G data. As already we explained as to what are the bands and what to consider in terms is best that support 20, which at the moment is not included in this terminal (as is common in many Asian devices or intended this market).
