Today afternoon, in the annual conference, held in Jinan, Mi CEO Lei Jun, used an app called Mi Live to initiate the broadcast. In the process, Lei Jun accidentally leaked 2 heavily anticipated Mi products, the Mi Max, and second generation Mi Band.
Lei Jun later stated that the biggest phone in the history of Mi will be released on May 10th. It is said that in addition to screen large (expected 6.4 inches), the battery capacity will be a pleasantly surprising factor.
Earlier, Mi’s official a/c on Weibo, shared a real image of the device which only revealed, the top front corner of the device was visible. What we could make out of the image were the symmetrical design and the missing Mi logo.
In addition to Mi Max , Mi band II also appeared for the first time, it is likely to be released along with Mi Max. Live shots of the event show up ll reveal Lei Jun wearing the smart band on the left hand, the new Mi band comes with a screen and can display time. Next to the screen there is a button-like design, we are pretty unsure of its functionality at the moment.
It also needs to be noted that Mi has developed custom processor named “Rifle” and it is supposed to be launched along with other Mi products, next month. Mi Max is supposed to be carrying the “rifle” processor, however, let’s wait till the launch of the processor to assess the performance and applications.[source]
