In a live broadcast from the annual conference in Jinan, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun revealed that the company’s upcoming phablet dubbed the “Max” will be officially unveiled on May 10th. Along with the phablet, the Chinese manufacturer could also debut the second generation Mi Band at the event.
As we told you recently, the Max will be a new line of product from Xiaomi, with the first phablet being the biggest smartphone Xiaomi has produced so far. Lei Jun also mentioned during the live broadcast that the Max will boast of a “surprisingly large” battery inside. Interestingly, new rumors suggest the Xiaomi Max will be powered by the manufacturer’s custom “rifle” processor and not the Snapdragon 820 chipset as previously rumored.
In the image above, you can see that the Xiaomi CEO is wearing the Mi Band 2, the successor to the highly successful Mi Band. Unlike the first generation model, the second generation model does have a display as well, which can display the time and possible other info as well.
