Mi Max is Xiaomi’s latest flagship device and first fully loaded Mi phablet in India. Previously Xiaomi has launched Mi Tab with larger screen size but that was lacking 3G/4G connectivity.
Yesterday Xiaomi Mi Max officially launched in India at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Delhi, the event wasn’t as peaceful as we expected because of few Xiaomi fans who started protesting for freebies and fans were also started claiming that Xiaomi has invited more people than the capacity of events which ended calling Delhi Police.
I have attended few events and fan meet organised by Xiaomi and personally, I really appreciate their events management. If there were some kind of sitting arrangement issues then Xiaomi should be careful next time before inviting huge numbers of people.
Xiaomi and other companies will understand after this incident that people who are attending their events are not because they are fan but many of them are attending just because fo freebies and gifts many of them might be fan of other brand and few of them might not even much aware about of Xiaomi and it’s product but come on !! who will say no freebies :).
So Xiaomi should be careful while inviting the people for events, if they are getting thousands of registration it doesn’t mean they all wanted to attend the event many of them might just registering to get some freebies.
About the Mi Max, Xiaomi had been launched Mi Max for the Chinese market in May and now they have officially launched in India. Xiaomi learned the lessons from Mi 5 launch, when everyone criticised to ignore Indian market by not launching the higher version of Mi 5, so this time Xiaomi is also bringing the top variant of Mi Max with 4GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.
The all metal body phablet Mi max will be having Dark Grey, Gold, and Silver colours with the fingerprint scanner on the rear panel.
