Xiaomi Mi Max photo shows a crazy-thin metal phablet

Fresh off the release of its flagship Mi5, Xiaomi is gearing up for another big smartphone. The Mi Max is set to debut next week, but the company just can’t wait to show off its super slim phablet.

A new photo shared by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun offers our best look yet at the Mi Max. Shown from the side, it’s impressively thin for its size. The device also appears to sport a sleek metal design with a curved back similar to recent Xiaomi smartphones.

The Mi Max also recently passed through Chinese certification at the TENAA, offering two more images of the device. The front panel looks pretty standard, with thin bezels and capacitive buttons. The back appears to feature a circular fingerprint scanner similar to the ones used in Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

The Mi Max is expected to pack a massive 6.44-inch display, a solid 4500mAh battery and a 15-megapixel rear camera (5-megapixel in front). It may also offer a mid-range Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM, which should help keep the price in budget-friendly territory.

Xiaomi looks set to unveil the Mi Max at an event on May 10. We’re also expecting to see a new Mi Band 2, though production issues could keep the fitness tracker from hitting the market for a few more months.
