Xiaomi has rolled out a new Mi Max teaser giving fans the first glimpse of the upcoming smartphone.

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, via Weibo, has showed off the first official image of the Mi Max, revealing it will boast sleek slim body and the light reflection on the device hints it might come with premium metal-frame around the edges.

Earlier in the week, Xiaomi Mi Max appeared on GFXBench site. In the "System Information" section of the website, it said the device will have a massive 6.4-inch screen.

Now, when we look at the teaser image, Xiaomi Mi Max does look big length wise. It is held by a hand and it extends quite a lot beyond the fingers, almost confirming the smartphone will have a very large screen.

Expected features of Xiaomi Mi Max:

Previous reports have indicated that the Mi Max will feature full-HD (1920x1080p) display, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based MIUI v7.0 OS, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 hexa-core (ARMv8-based Cortex A72 x 6) CPU, an Adreno 510 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory, a 16MP primary camera, fingerprint sensor on the back and a 5MP front-snapper.

In a related development, Xiaomi Mi Band 2, which is said to debut along with Mi Max next week, might not hit stores this month.
