Xiaomi Max front panel leak show very narrow bezels
The phablet version of the Xiaomi Mi 5 will likely be the Xiaomi Max with a 6.4-inch QHD resolution panel. A shot of the front panel in the middle of production has purportedly leaked showing that the device could have very narrow bezels for easier handling despite the >6-inch screen size. In contrast to the Mi 5, however, there appears to be no front fingerprint sensor and will likely be moved to the back of the device instead.
Other details on the Xiaomi Max remain scarce. The phablet is expected to carry a Snapdragon 820 SoC as found on the Mi 5 with a rumored official reveal sometime next month. Also like the Mi 5, the Xiaomi Max may not have a proper launch in Europe and will be available primarily through imports.
Xiaomi is not the only manufacturer launching phablet editions of its existing smartphones. Huawei is also rumored to be launching a larger version of its P9 flagship this year as well with details leaked through a GFXBench entry.
