The difference in chipset is two extra Cortex-A72 cores for the CPU (for a total of 4x A72 + 4x A53). Both use the new generation Adreno 510 GPU, which should be more than powerful enough to drive the 1080p screen. All three versions have a hybrid dual-SIM slot so that you can add more storage.

The Xiaomi Mi Max runs the new MIUI 8 (based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow). The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back for extra security.
