Bundled with a HUGE 6.44-inch screen, Mi Max is by far the largest phone offered by Xiaomi. Apart from the gigantic display, this device offers a gigantic battery too. A 4,850 mAh battery is provided by the manufacturer to cope with useless power hogging apps and games.
Mi Max will come in three variants. The base variant will provide a Snapdragon 650 SoC, 3GB of RAM/32GB of storage and will cost around ₹15,000. The middle variant will have a better processor coupled with more storage and a new price tag i.e. Snapdragon 652 SoC, 3GB of RAM/64GB of storage at around ₹17,000. Still want more?
