Xiaomi Mi Max and Mi Band 2 allegedly revealed in new leaked photos

Xiaomi Mi Max and Mi Band 2 allegedly revealed in new leaked photos
Like any hot item in the mobile universe, Xiaomi's upcoming phones just can't stop leaking! The company has a pair of high-profile releases lined up for this month, which happen to be the Xiaomi Mi Max and the Mi Band 2. Following last week's leaked materials (courtesy of Xiaomi Ceo Lei Jun himself), new photos of both showed up on Weibo, and things look promising! The Xiaomi Mi Max looks a lot like the company's Mi Note and Mi Note Pro phones, carrying three capacitive buttons and flaunting thinned-out bezels.

There's a metal strip running along the phone's edges, and the display looks to be approaching the 6-inch by diagonal size. In terms of hardware, the phablet should be equipped with a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 16MP (rear) / 5MP (front) camera setup. All in all, not exactly a flagship phone, but an affordable solution for those lusting after large-screens.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is upgraded with an actual display in place of the three LED lights its successor had to make do with. The screen will notify users of their fitness stats and deliver notifications directly via the wearable, rather than Xiaomi's Mi Fit smartphone app. The wearable will retain its diminutive price tag, speculated to be around $16 (CNY 99).

Both devices should be announced on the 10th of May, and we're pretty sure at least the Mi Band 2 will be sold globally by Xiaomi. The Mi Max won't be sold officially outside of Asia, but it should be a reliable-enough import item for those interested, as its Qualcomm processor should enable it to work on the majority of LTE networks over the globe.

Xiaomi, why not learn something from the company you oh so deliberately try to copy??? Why you can't be as 'secretive' as Mr. Apple? There're a TON of rumors circulating the internet regarding iPhone 7, but I know the end product will be FAR different than the 'allegedly' leaks & spy shots of prototypes... Remember iPhone 6 rumors? It did came with a bigger display as predicted, but apart from that, none of the leaked images turned out to be true!

In my opinion, Xiaomi had stopped trying to copy Apple and is now trying to mimic Samsung.

'none of the leaked images turned out to be true!"...I dont know where you live but the iPhone 6 design was pretty much seen 2 months before announcement I still remember tech sites saying how Apple would never releasing something so ugly or saying it was fake and then doing a 180 when it came out and calling it a revolutionary design. From that day on 2.5d curved glass that I first saw on the Galaxy S3 'belonged' to Apple

I have high doubts on the credibility of these images. Obviously the style of those capacitive keys aren't in line with what Xiaomi had been using since around 2 years ago. And more suspiciously they are nearly identical with OPPO's style. This might as well be a poorly-made render.
