Xiaomi has kicked off its Diwali sale with Mi in India, and has hosted many deals and offers on its website and app. As part of the festivities, the company has also launched the Xiaomi Mi Max Prime in India. The smartphone is priced at Rs. 19,999, and it is now available for purchase on mi.com and Amazon India.
The smartphone went on sale at 10pm IST, and is already out of stock on the company website. Amazon India is also taking orders, but informs that the shipping will only commence on October 19. Both the Gold and Grey colour variants are out of stock on the company website, while Amazon India is only taking orders for the Gold colour variant. The e-commerce giant is also offering a zero interest EMI in partnership with Bajaj Finserv.
As we already know, the Mi Max Prime is a slightly modified upgraded version of the Xiaomi Mi Max smartphone, which launched earlier this year. The only difference between the two is that the Mi Max Prime offers a different processor, and packs in more RAM and internal storage. Specifically, the Mi Max Prime is powered by the Snapdragon 652 variant paired with 4GB of RAM and offers 128GB of inbuilt storage, compared to the Snapdragon 650 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage on the Mi Max.
All the other specifications remain the same. The Xiaomi Mi Max Prime sports a 6.44-inch full-HD (1080x1920) 342ppi display. The Mi Max Prime also offers option to further expand storage via a microSD slot (up to 128GB). It supports hybrid dual-SIM configuration, and runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8. As for the optics, there's a 16-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), f/2.0 aperture, and LED flash. The phablet also bears a 5-megapixel front camera on board with 85-degree wide-angle view.
The Xiaomi Mi Max Prime is backed by a 4850mAh battery, which the company claims can offer up to 14 hours of video playback. The dimensions measure at 173.1x88.3x7.5mm and the smartphone weighs at 203 grams. It sports an infrared emitter to act as a universal remote control, apart from an ambient light sensor, gyroscope, accelerometer, and proximity sensor.
