Is this the front panel of the 6.4-inch Xiaomi Max?
Out of China today, a photograph leaked online allegedly showing the front panel of the rumored Xiaomi Max phablet. The device, which got its name from an online poll, will sport a 6.4-inch display with thin side bezels. Unlike the Xiaomi Mi 5, the Max does not feature a fingerprint scanner embedded in a front-facing home button. Instead, the biometric reader will be found on the back of the device.

Not much is known about the Xiaomi Max at this point, other than the screen size, the 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution, and the chipset. The Snapdragon 820 SoC, with its quad-core CPU and Adreno 530 GPU, will be driving the device. There are capacitive buttons at the bottom of the panel.

We could see a May release for the Xiaomi Max, if the latest speculation is true. Note the rubber gloves being worn by the person holding the panel. That could mean that the pictures were taken right by the assembly line. If we are being hoodwinked, that was a pretty clever thing to do.

Isn't it just the glass without display panel?

Finally. A phone that can fit my hands. Im tired of all the little whiny trolls complaining about needing a small 4" iPhone. You got your little recycled phone. Now, we big handed people getting some love.

My thoughts exactly. This size is the last niche on the market, yet no manufacturer realizes it. My hands aint that big, but as long as my pocket can eat it, bring it on. These arent phones or smarphones anymore, these are all in one multipurpose electronic devices and screen size matters a lot. Now be a sober manufacturer and throw in a dedicated camera button, also.

I love big phones with ergonomic design like S7 Edge or GNote 5, that actually feel lot smaller compared to iPhone 6 Plus (i hate it when i can't fit humongous phone into my pocket).

exactly... if they put >5500mAh battery, then instantbuy as my gaming only secondary phone :D (I know they can put that much juice, since they can fit 4100mAh inside 5inch phone)
