Xiaomi’s big screen phablet, the Mi Max 2 is getting a price cut in Malaysia. Initially priced at RM1,199, the 6.44″ device is now going for RM1,049.
If you don’t want to pay a premium for the Mi Max 2, it could be coming to Malaysia officially very soon. A device with the model number MDE40 has just passed SIRIM certification and this is confirmed to be Xiaomi’s new affordable large-screen phablet.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is probably the best smartphone if you’re looking for a large smartphone with a huge battery. With its even larger 5,300mAh battery and a frugal Snapdragon 625 processor, Xiaomi says you can easily last 2 days on a single charge. It was launched about two weeks ago and now you can get your hands on one in Malaysia.
Xiaomi’s Mi Max was pretty interesting when it first launched. It was essentially a really big Redmi Note 3 and thanks to its gentle price point, users who wanted huge but reasonably powerful budget phablets had a device they could turn to.
Today, Xiaomi reveals the Mi Max’s successor. Simply called the Mi Max 2, the new handset is doubling down on battery life.
