Xiaomi to launch Mi Max 2 on May 25


Just this weekend, we had published that Xiaomi may have accidentally recognized his next phablet, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 and it seems that we were not too misguided in doing so.

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. It has started teasing the launch of the device on its Chinese social channels.

If your memory serves you correctly, you will know that when Xiaomi previously announced its Mi Max, it featured a massive 6.4-inch display that gave it the advantage to sport a large battery capacity.

Xiaomi has confirmed that it will launch more Mi branded smartphones in India, but the device name, model remains unknown. As per reports, the handset will first launch in China and then at a later time, there'll be a worldwide launch. The phone will upgrade the battery to 5000mAh from the 4850mAh in Mi Max.

As for the other specs, we only have the rumors to go on which includes a Snapdragon 626 chipset with 4GB of RAM, or another variant that comes with a Snapdragon 660 with 6GB of RAM.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will carry forward the 6.44 inch screen size. The listing also mentioned the device to run on Android 7.1.1 out of the box. The Mi Max 2 also packs a bunch of sensors including accelerometer, barometer, compass, gyroscope, pedometer, proximity, and light sensor. 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 may also equip it with a 12MP rear camera enhanced by a Sony IMX378 sensor and dual-LED flash.

Last month, Xiaomi officially unveiled its latest flagship smartphone called Mi 6 in China.
