Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Will Be Launching On May 25


Well, the talk is about the Xiaomi Mi Max 2.

Xiaomi has a habit of releasing several storage and RAM models of its smartphone and it looks like, with the announcement of the Mi Max, things are not going to be any different. A month ago the features of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 were filtered by the portal Slashleaks allowing us to get an idea about the strengths of this Chinese company's new phablet. Standout features of the Mi Max were the phone's huge 4,850mAh battery and its similarly large 6.4-inch display. Mi Max successor aka Mi Max 2 has been subjected to several leaks ahead of the launch which does reveal a lot about the device. The handset will sport an all-metal body, as per rumors and come with a storage of 128GB.

According to reports, some of the other rumoured specifications include a 6.44-inh full-HD display and 12-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX378 sensor. The Mi Max also came with a not-so-big price, starting at 1,499 yuan (converts to about $230/£160/AU$315) for the 32GB version.

The phone will come in two variants, one to come with Snapdragon 626 system chip and other with the newest Snapdragon 660 processor.

As for the screen, another recent leak suggests that Xiaomi could reduce the screen size of 6.44 inches present in Mi Max up to 6 inches in the Mi Max 2. On top of that both devices will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 8 (or MIUI 9?). If the rumours are to be believed, the upcoming Mi Max 2 would see a significant overhaul in nearly all departments, be it software, hardware, camera or any other. It will be launched in China on 25 May. The Mi Max 2 also packs a bunch of sensors including accelerometer, barometer, compass, gyroscope, pedometer, proximity, and light sensor. A fingerprint sensor can be found on the back side of the phone below the rear camera.
