There is currently no word on when Xiaomi plans to bring the Mi Max phablet to India. But considering how soon the Mi 5 arrived in India, we may not have to wait long for Xiaomi’s 6.44-inch phablet. At this price range though, the Mi Max will have to compete against other phablets like the YU Yureka Note, and the Lenovo Phab Plus to name a few.
