The Launch Event
Let's have a review of what Hugo shared about the fabulous MIUI8 & Mi Max on the launch event!
First let's watch the introduction video of MIUI8!
The inspiration of MIUI8 comes from a keleidoscope. The ability to generate vast diversity from simple components is the foundation for our new design!
Color is used to convey information in MIUI8. Each piece of content is paired with a color!
If color is the face of our new design, then animation is the body language! In MIUI8, there are designs that are not only cool to look at, but also logical and useful!

In panorama gallery, photos are shown in their native formats.
Quick Sharing: simply swipe up on your photo and select your social media platform!
There's also new cloud photo sync, where U can save your photos and free up to 90% of storage space.
With our new features of video editing, you can now trim videos easily, add dramatic filters and add background music in a few steps.
New features of screenshots allow one action to capture everything U need!
Quick ball gives you 5 gesture shortcuts that don't require changing your grip or moving your thumb around too much.
MIUI8 Calculator makes conversion easy for U! It can do automatic conversion of weight, temperature, currency and many other things for your daily life! When you're in the calculator, just click on the menu icon in the top left corner, and you'll be able to access all these modes.
Work or personal? Why not both! In one phone that is! MIUI 8 lets you duplicate apps. This is exceptionally handy with apps like Whatsapp or Facebook which requires you to register seperate numbers or accounts! If that's not enough, you can also run 2 different MIUI logins in one phone, so that allows you to split your work mobile interface, from your personal one!
Scroll though your caller ID right now. How many of these calls are what you don't want, or have to receive? With MIUI8 caller ID we crowd source these numbers so you'll know who's calling before you answer. We can even identify which company it is that is calling!
Release dates and devices! With MIUI8 we believe great designs Simplify Your Lives!
Now it's time to go MAX! Redmi Note phones have been popular, and more people seem to be looking for phones with the larger 5.5" screens these days. Mi Max with it's 6.44" screen and a whopping 4850mAh battery raises the bar even higher!
If 6.44" for screen size sounds unfamiliar to you, it is. We realised that people have been interested in tablets with call functions. We felt that for Mi Max, 6.44" it was the perfect size that is big enough to be immersive like a tablet, yet not too big that making calls on it would be totally weird.
Mi Max fits comfortably in your pocket. and in your hands. For its size, it's only 203g light and 7.5mm thin. Check out how beautiful it is!
Having a large screen in your pocket is a game changer. From reading to texting to working, you get such a MAXimum experience, you'll find it hard going back to smaller screens again.
We hear you asking about battery life. How is it, when you have such a big screen? Well, we tested Mi Max against a couple of tablets to get a sense of it’s battery performance. Take a look because Mi Max is not just big, it is also BIG on battery!
How about other features you ask? We guarantee Mi Max is jam-packed with top features such as Snapdraon 650/652 processor, 16MP PDAF camera, SIM tray hybrid slot that you can also use as a microSD slot (supports up to an incredible 128GB), and a tough Corning® Gorilla®Glass 3 screen.
Also a special offer for Mi fans with a great partner - Hungama!
The first 10,00,00 Mi Max, Mi 5 and select Redmi Note 3 users get to enjoy 3-months of unlimited movies on Hungama Play, and 1 year unlimited music from Hungama music!
How much for all these awesome features? You can get Mi Max at Rs. 14,999 (3GB+32GB) or Rs. 19,999 (4GB+128GB). LIKE this? Share the BIG news with your buddies too!
