Highlights
  • The Mi Max was launched last month at Rs. 14,999
  • A higher-spec variant will launch soon at Rs. 19,999
  • The phablet is now available across Xiaomi's retail partners
Following its first flash sale on Mi.com last week, the Xiaomi Mi Max is now available in open sale via the Chinese conglomerate's online retail partners in the country - Amazon India, Flipkart (currently out of stock), Paytm, Snapdeal (not yet listed), and Tata Cliq.

To recall, at the Xiaomi Mi Max launch event in the last week of June, the firm had announced that July 13 will see the smartphone available in open sale via its retail partners. Interested buyers will now be able to buy the smartphone without registering themselves in advance, or rushing to purchase the smartphone during a flash sale.
