Xiaomi Max could be way pricier than expected

Leaked slide from the official Xiaomi presentation for the upcoming May 10th conference seems to be crushing some dreams about the affordability of the huge Xiaomi Max model. If the picture turns out to be legit, then the pricing of the phone is going to be way over the originally anticipated level.

The slide is showing 2199 yuan price (337$) for the 3GB+32GB model, which is even higher than what Xiaomi Mi5 Standard edition is selling for. As mentioned in our previous article with the Xiaomi Max TENAA certification leaks and pictures the rumors put the basic version roughly around 1299 yuan (199$). So either the price bump for the advanced model is extremely steep or even the basic version is going to be priced higher than expected.

Such price could be a serious blow to the desirability of the 6.4-inch FHD phone running Snapdragon 650 chipset, 16 MPix main camera, 4000 mAh battery and MIUI version based on Android 6.0.1. What do you think about this price for the Xiaomi Max model ?
