The unannounced 6.4-inch phablet may be easier to hold than initially anticipated.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
