Xiaomi Mi Max Prime is a better Mi Max

Same looks, more oomph

Xiaomi has upgraded its massive Mi Max phablet and added the word “Prime” to it. If you think the new Mi Max Prime looks a lot like its older sibling, you’re spot on. The only significant changes are within.

There’s a better processor, going from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 to a Snapdragon 652; the RAM has been boosted from 3GB to 4GB; and you get 128GB of internal storage instead of the measly 32GB from before.

Xiaomi Mi Max has a 6.4-inch display to go with its massive battery

Everything else is identical to the predecessor, from the 6.44-inch 1080p display to the hefty 4850mAh battery. You can call the Mi Max Prime a souped-up midranger, or better yet, a borderline flagship phablet.

The announcement seems rushed, since the original Mi Max was launched just last May. Since then, we unboxed it and gave the supersized smartphone our hands-on treatment.

Beginning October 17, those interested in India can buy it for RS 19,999, which is almost $300 — typical of Xiaomi’s low-price, high-performance pricing strategy.

The rest of the world will either have to wait or purchase through gray market outlets once they get a hold of it.
