Is there any shops that can remove both the front and back cameras of Mi Max, without severely damaging the aesthetics of the phone?

Due to work reasons, I sometimes need to access sensitive areas that prohibit camera phones. The security uncles checking the phones don't know **** about Mindef guidelines so just want to see a phone that has no front and back cameras. It'll be great if any shops out there can modify the Max till it looks like there's no built in cameras.

I was considering the new INO 5 LTE but INO never seem to have a good reputation for their phones.

Newstar on Qoo10 and shopee or iSky and MiddleSky on Lazada are all referring to the same seller and shop.

There are pure china rom seller with China rom preloaded in their handset for Mi Max.

Yes, it can be flashed to global rom with ease. Don't worry.

You can try to ask them to help flashing to global rom for you if they are willing to even though they have no obligation to do it for buyers. No harm asking, right?
i see, thanks for the info, though would want to try flash the phone my own, but still i will do check with them and ask them to help me 1st. and maybe at a later time i do some research on the steps and try it on my own.

but do u have happen to have any good codes for the their shopee? cos after comparing the pricing seems like shopee discount is much better.

Confirmed 3/32 as per its page.

I have no idea about this shop. It should be okay.

Any other folks may be able to advise further.
Thanks "KelMAX".😀

Best VALUE phone I have ever had!
Thanks and congrats to bro @kelvinti, without u maybe this thread won't reach part 2
Truly truly the person who has shown his loyalty and
sincerity to help others is kelvinti. I consulted him before
getting the Mi Max as I was not convinced that it is a good
phone.

Not to forget too, the many other brothers/sisters whom
have contributed much to make this forum so interesting
and exciting with their excellent patience in helping those
who have never used a Xiaomi phone before.

Active interaction from everyone here have contributed to the unexpected part 2.

Many of us have never used a Xiaomi phone before. Those numerous questions and answers thus the high number of postings have resulted the impossible Part 2 for Mi Max.

Anyway, expecting a new OTA for Mi Max (All variants) this upcoming week as some of us here have received the 8.1.9.0 (Mi Max Prime) via OTA as random users selected by MIUI Team before it is released officially to the mass.

Let's hope the new OTA fixes some of the current bugs (Especially the low volume bug on YouTube via earpiece & Mi Sound Enhancer bug), if not all!

Oh ahh!

Newstar does mention that they will "Open the box to install Google Play"... That, we take it as preloading of official Glolbal rom!
