Xiaomi’s 6.44-inch Mi Max now official in Malaysia

The Xiaomi Mi Max

Xiaomi’s first 6+ inch smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi Max is now official in Malaysia.

Buyers in the country will be able to avail the phone for RM999 or $247. For this, they’ll get the 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM and Snapdragon 650 powered variant. It’s a little disappointing to note that this will be the only variant on sale in Malaysia, which means there’ll be no 4GB RAM/SD652 goodness for the country.

Gizchina News of the week

September 3 onwards, people in Malaysia will be able to get a Mi Max from offline stores via Thorus and online through Lazada Malaysia. Telecom carriers Maxis, Digi, Celcom and YES will also be offering the phone.

    Disappointed that only the base 32gb variant will be sold here. Should at least bring in the 64gb..

    And I thought my Galaxy Note 4 was a big phone… I had a 7′ tablet once and I can’t imagine how you could use something similar as a phone.
