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.
