18:9 displays have allowed manufacturers to cram bigger screens into smaller-than-expected bodies. Thanks to the widespread acceptance of the new trend, 5.7-inch or 6-inch displays fitted in a 5.5-inch phone footprint are fairly common sightings these days.
The big phones aren’t going anywhere, though. Xiaomi’s next generation Mi Max 3 will reportedly house an even bigger 7-inch screen in nearly the same Mi Max 2 size casing. If leaked renders are to be believed, the handset will also include two rear cameras.

The new Xiaomi big phone is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset – the first mid-range Qualcomm SoC to include custom Kyro cores (Kyro 260).
