Xiaomi Mi Max specifications, features: The phablet’s talking point is the massive 6.44-inch screen with full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It also features a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture , dual-tone LED flash and PDAF support, 5-megpaixel selfie camera with wide-angle lens, and a 4,850mAh battery with Quick Charge support.
Connectivity options include 4G with VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS and Bluetooth, while on the software front, it runs on Android Marshmallow. There is currently no word on when Xiaomi plans to launch this affordable variant in India. A lower price tag will no doubt tempt buyers, but it remains to be seen if it will be an incentive enough to give up on 3GB of RAM.
