Earlier Xiaomi announced and released their Mi Max, their biggest and most affordable phablet ever. For just an equivalent of 10.8K (converted) you’re getting a phone with a massive 6.44-inch full HD display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, as well as a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and PDAF, all topped off with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor.

If you find the price of the top end model too pricey, Xiaomi has gone and announced a lower end variant of the Mix Max that has just 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage, all for a measly RMB 1,199 or Php 8.4K converted. Obviously it’ll cost a little higher when you factor in import taxes and grey market markup (because for some reason Xiaomi has apparently given up the ghost in the PH).
Unfortunately you’re also giving up the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, and instead you’ll have to settle for the lower end 650 processor. That’s not going to matter much though, as Qualcomm’s new silicon has more than enough power to get you through your normal day without any issues.
