Xiaomi's large screen phone / phabet, the 6.44-inch Mi Max, will go on an open sale at 2PM today on Mi.com, Amazon, Flipkart, PayTM, Tata CLiQ and Snapdeal. The Xiaomi Mi Max is priced at Rs 14,999 for the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant and Rs 19,999 for the 4GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.
Since this is an open sale, you do not need to register before hand to buy your Mi Max. On most of the outlets mentioned above, only the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant has been listed. A quick look on Mi.com also doesn't show the 4GB variant listing. It is good to see the open sale happening on so many platforms simultaneously. This is a major departure from the seconds long flash sale on one platform that Xiaomi phones were known for.
In our Xiaomi Mi Max review we had noted, "The Xiaomi Mi Max has few competitors in the ‘Max’ category. As we have mentioned in past reviews, it’s not just the battery life that matters but the overall package and Xiaomi seems to have built a solid smartphone with a solid battery life. We were not fans of the software but the camera won us over and the same goes for the overall package."
In terms of specifications, the Xiaomi Mi Max sports a 6.44-inch full HD display and sports a whopping 4850mAh battery.
On the inside there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, powered by four Cortex A72 cores and two A53 cores along with 3GB of RAM. The internal storage is at 32GB which can be expanded further using a microSD card. The Snapdragon 652 variant packs in 4GB RAM and features 128GB of internal storage.
In the camera department you get a 16MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture lens and a dual LED flash while on the front, a 5MP module has the responsibility of taking selfies. The rear camera can take 4K videos as well. Xiaomi has also crammed in a 4,850mAH battery which can last for almost two days straight. Other features include a fingerprint reader at the back, and connectivity features such as 4G LTE, dual-SIM compatibility, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM Radio with recording, GPS/A-GPS, GLONASS and USB 2.0 with OTG support. The phablet will be available in Gold, Silver and Dark Grey colour options.
