When you’re talking about a value proposition, — even just on a hardware aspect — Xiaomi is probably one of the leaner, meaner players out there giving up the goods. Its Mi Max phones have put up good mechanics for a hard bargain.
And then we saw a Mi Max with 2GB of RAM on TENAA. And we had to wonder how much it would have to go for to be any good.
The answer? Xiaomi thinks it’s ¥1,199 ($179). It has 16GB of storage and is likely running a Snapdragon 650 on a 6.44-inch screen. The standard 3GB of RAM version goes for about $230.
2GB of RAM making it down into the $100 range sounds nice, but when will it creep to the double-digit borderline, standard?
