It’s 10th May, and Mi Max has finally launched in an event held in Beijing with live streaming available in their official website. Over 40 lakh people watched the live streaming of MIUI 8 and Mi Max launch. The event started with MIUI 8 launch, later proceeding to Mi Max. Mi Max will come pre-loaded with MIUI 8 OS that is one of the major upgrade in MIUI history. Mi Max (128GB variant with 4GB RAM and Snapdragon 652) is priced at 1999 RMB.
Mi Max, as the name suggest, has a huge display size, to be precise Mi Max is a phablet instead of smartphone. It features a 6.44 inch 2.5D display with metal body. The phone will be available in three colors, i.e. Silver, Light Grey and Gold. As the display is quite big and small handed may find it very difficult to operate the phone, Mi has introduced “one-handed mode” that allows easy handling of phone with one hand.
As expected Mi Max is equipped with fingerprint sensors that integrate with MIUI 8 quite well, even providing the security for inbuilt applications like Notes. It is a dual SIM device with 3G and 4G support. Mi Max is powered with Snapdragon 650/652 chipset accompanied with 3GB/4GB and Adreno 510 GPU. It comes with 32GB, 64GB and 128GB internal storage. There are total 3 variants of Mi Max that are listed below with price.
