The Xiaomi Mi Max has finally been given an official launch today after weeks of rumors and speculation. For the most part, the rumors got a lot of things right about Xiaomi’s massive new phablet, such as the 6.44” Full HD screen and gargantuan 4,850mAh battery.
Xiaomi Mi Max Specs
- 6.44″ Full HD IPS display (1080 x 1920 resolution, 342ppi)
- Snapdragon 650/652 SoC
- Adreno 510 GPU
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB, or 4GB/128GB RAM and internal storage options
- 16mp autofocus rear-facing camera with LED flash
- 5mp front camera
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS
- 4,850mAh battery
While there aren’t as many phablets that truly border on tablet status, they aren’t new. What’s great about the Mi Max though is that it manages to cram in an equally massive battery to power the device and give you more uptime than even most 7 inch tablets.
As is often the case with Xiaomi devices, the Mi Max comes in three RAM/ROM flavors: 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB, and 4GB/128GB. The 3GB/32GB variant comes with a Snapdragon 650 SoC while both 4GB RAM variants come with the beefier Snapdragon 652.
The Xiaomi Mi Max starts at a fairly affordable RMB 1,499 (roughly Php10.7k) for the base variant and goes up to RMB 1,699 and RMB 1,999 for the 64GB and 128GB variants. Hopefully, it will make its way here to Philippine shores, although if it does, expect the price to go up a bit to accommodate import duties.
