Xiaomi Mi Max phablet teased on Xiaomi's official English site

About a week ago, we showed you an image of what reportedly was the front panel for a new phablet from Xiaomi said to be called the Xiaomi Mi Max. Today, a teaser for the phone was spotted on Xiaomi's official English site. The photo shows the device peeking out of a user's pocket to show that phone is pocketable despite the rumored 6.4-inch display. The screen is said to include a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution

Speculation has the Mi Max powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset, although another rumor says that the device will be the first to employ the manufacturer's first in-house SoC. There also seems to be some confusion about the placement of the fingerprint scanner, with the previous picture of the front panel revealing that there is no home button on the front of the unit. That means that on the Mi Max, the biometric scanner will be housed on the back of the phone. Yet, alleged renders of the phablet show a device that looks exactly like the Xiaomi Mi 5 right down to the fingerprint scanner on the front of the device. Hmm.

As is the case with most unannounced handsets, there are plenty of mysteries surrounding the Xiaomi Mi Max. Hopefully, we can clear them all up shortly.
