Xiaomi already shared a teaser of its upcoming Max phablet with a huge 6.4-inch display. Today Xiaomi has officially confirmed that the smartphone will be announced on May 10th. Even though earlier rumors said that it will have a Quad HD screen and will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC, GFXBench listing reveals that it will be a mid-range smartphone with a 1080p screen and will be powered by a Snapdragon 650 SoC, similar to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
