In June we echoed that Xiaomi had no plans to launch any Xiaomi Mi Max or Mi Note during the remainder of the year, according to Lei Jun himself. Finally there was a Mi Note before the end of the year, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, but the Mi Max series is still in death row: Lu Weibing has stated on Twitter that "there will be no more".
In a publication on Weibo without much relation about the Max series (but about the preparation of the next Redmi K30 event), a user took the opportunity to ask when will the next Mi Max be launched with a big screen. Lu Weibing's response has been something like "never."
No more Xiaomi Mi Max
The latest Xiaomi Mi Max 3 saw the light in 2018 with Snapdragon 636, a 6.9-inch FullHD + screen and dimensions not suitable for all budgets: 176.15 x 87.4 x 7.99 mm. As a reference, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ measures 162.3 x 77.2 x 7.9 mm.
This year was expected a Xiaomi Mi Max 4 that never arrived and It was not expected during 2019, but those who prefer large mobiles hoped that it could arrive later in 2020. It seems that it will not be so, as Lu Weibing has been blunt in his response by stating "will not launch". That is, in theory there will be no Xiaomi Mi Max.
Now, it would not be the first time Lu Weibing comments on one thing and later contradicts himself, so those who miss this series should not lose hope. At the moment, the last news we have is that there will be no Xiaomi Mi Max, as Xiaomi founder Jei Lun anticipated and is now confirmed by Redmi CEO Lu Weibing. Rest in peace.
