Xiaomi has just quietly announced the Mi Max Prime in India, which is now listed on the company's official site in India. The Mi Max Prime comes with the same 6.44-inch 1080p display which is nearing tablet dimensions running on the powerful octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor but now with 4GB RAM. Another huge addition is 128GB of internal storage which is expandable by using the second SIM card slot.
It has the same 16MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture lens and 5MP front facing camera for selfies. To keep everything going, Xiaomi has packed a 4850 mAh battery to give the Mi Max Prime ample juice for more than a day's worth of hard work.
The entire device is made of metal, and even with that massive battery the company has been able to keep the thickness down to just 7.5mm. But it still weighs in at 203 grams, which isn't exactly meant for single handed use. Anyways you weren't counting on that with that large display anyways. Coming back to build, to make the phone easier to hold, there are soft rounded edges with sharp chamfers to add a bit of grip.
There are plenty of connectivity options onboard as well including dual-SIM 4G with VoLTE support, dual band WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM Radio and pretty much every sensor you need for your phone to work property. You also get a fingerprint sensor on the back to keep the device safe.
