The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi held an event in Delhi. Along with the journalists and bloggers, the brand also invited its beloved fans. At the event, the company unveiled a few things. First, a bunch of free t-shirts, which nearly cause riots among the nice people from Delhi. To contain the situation, Xiaomi then unveiled the cops who dragged many of the nice people out.
There were reports of Xiaomi fans chanting “Xioami hai hai”, which means down with Xiaomi. Here’s a video of the incident recorded by blogger Jayaditya:
After the interesting bit, the Chinese company then launched its oversized Mi Max smartphone. The device features a sleek metal unibody. it sports 6.4-inch Full HD IPS (In Pane Switching) screen. It packs in a Snapdragon 650 octa-core chipset. The phone comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. The company will soon roll out a 4 GB variant with 128 GB onboard storage.
In the photography department, you get a 16 megapixel rear camera. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, IR blaster, 4G LTE, and 4760 mAh battery. The mi Max runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 7 on top.
Like most Xiaomi phones, the Mi Max is competitively priced at Rs 14,999 (3 GB variant). You will have to pay 5 grand extra for the 4 GB variant with 128 GB storage. The phone will be available though mi.com from July 6. In a week or two, it will land on other e-commerce websites such as Amazon, Flipkart, and Snapdeal.
