Xiaomi recently made its presence felt in the U.S. and apparently, the company is not resting until it’s everywhere like Samsung and Huawei.
The latest smartphone to be unveiled by “the Apple of China” is named the Xiaomi Mi Max Prime. As you may have already guessed, the Mi Max Prime is the upgraded version of the already existing Xiaomi Mi Max. According to the tech giant, the phone will be available for purchase starting October 17th.
Like many other Xiaomi smartphones, the Mi Max Prime comes equipped with top of the table hardware specs and features, but you will definitely enjoy the price tag slammed on the phone.
If you are familiar with the Mi Max, the Mi Max Prime won’t be new to you. This is because the phone borrows some aspects from its counterpart, among them the screen size, quality and battery capacity. You get a 6.44-inch screen that delivers a 1080p resolution. Unlike the Mi Max that comes with a Snapdragon 650 SoC, 3GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, the Mi Max Prime comes with a slightly stronger octa-core Snapdragon 652 SoC alongside an upgraded RAM of 4GB. In addition to this bump in performance specs, the phablet also packs a larger storage unit of 128GB.
The Xiaomi Mi Max Prime also gets room for microSD card storage, just like the Mi Max, alongside a rear snapper of 16MP with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and dual-tone LED flash. The front-facing camera has a decent 5MP snapper that keeps the same aperture. Given the huge 6.44-inch screen on the Mi Max Prime, Xiaomi went for a similarly huge 4850mAh battery unit, which is charged via a microUSB port.
Other features of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max Prime include Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, a fingerprint scanner and a decent price tag of just Rs. 19,999, which translates to about $300.
