by Jed John 7

Four months after Xiaomi launched the Mi Max starting at 1499 Yuan ($225) for the base variant, the massive phablet is set to get a price cut. This is despite the fact that the Mi Max has performed marvelously well in the market, grossing over 1.5 million sales  in just two months.

Xiaomi officially announced that beginning from September 6, all Mi Max variants will get a 200 Yuan (about $30) price cut. This means that the cheapest version with 3GB RAM and SD650 that was priced at 1499 Yuan ($225) will be available at 1299 Yuan ($195) on all Xiaomi official stores in China. The price cut is applicable from tomorrow.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, cutting down Mi Max’s price will make the lineup more aggressive and better equipped to take on the Meizu M3 Max series that will be announced in the next few hours.
