Xiaomi had announced it would unveil the new Mi Max smartphone running the new MIUI 8 version at its May 10 event. The Chinese company had also confirmed that the Mi Band 2 would also be revealed at the same day. However, it looks like the event will only have the Mi Max phablet and the next version of MIUI ROM which will be seen running on the smartphone - which is expected to be the platform lead device of MIUI 8.
