When it comes to Chinese manufacturers of smartphones, one can see a sharp, upward progression in terms of technology packed underneath the hood as well as the kind of design structure. While initially they might be pretty decently powered with a form factor that is all too familiar with flagship models from established manufacturers, these China-based companies are certainly doing their bit to get rid of such a pre-conception with their later iterations. Case in point, the latest Xiaomi Mi Max.
Officially unveiled in the previous week, the Xiaomi Mi Max is all ready to embark on its very first flash sale in China tomorrow, and even better news for the rest of the world who are watching on the sidelines – the Xiaomi Mi Max will also apparently be made available for pre-orders on the international scale.
Thanks to online retailer Gearbest, they have begun to accept pre-orders for the Xiaomi Mi Max from the rest of the world, with shipping being slated for June 21. The model that comes in a 3GB RAM/32GB memory configuration with a SnapDragon 650 chipset will retail for $325.89, and those who would like to pick up the 3GB RAM/64GB memory/SnapDragon 652 version will fork out a bit more at $359.89. The high end model of 4GB RAM/128GB memory with SnapDragon 652 chipset will retail for $499.89 a pop.
