Xiaomi has slowly been growing its stature in the smartphone industry with a number of new and impressive flagship phones, but it’s in the budget end that the Chinese OEM has a huge following.
The company has a wide range of Redmi phones for the budget spenders, but you can also grab yourself a Mi phone in the same category as well. Last year’s Xiaomi Mi Max sparked joy among phablet lovers and apparently, the tech giant wants to add more life to this device by launching a new Xiaomi Mi Max 2 this week.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has been in the rumor mills for quite some time now and apparently, we now have our hands on the phone’s alleged specs, features, price as well as the expected release date. The Chinese OEM had previously confirmed that the Mi Max will be made official on May 25, which is actually tomorrow.
According to the latest reports, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will indeed be a beast of a phone thanks to some impressive hardware specs and features. The phone will come in two variants of 64GB and 128GB, but the same 4GB RAM will be used on either model. In terms of pricing, the base model will set you back just CNY 1499 while the high-end variant will be valued at CNY 1799. When converted, these figures amount to just $218 and $261, respectively.
There’s talk of the two variants having more than just memory differences, with the latest leak suggesting that one variant could ship with a Snapdragon 626 octa-core SoC while the other will come in with a more powerful Snapdragon 660.
Given that the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is expected to don a massive 6.4-inch display screen with a Full HD resolution, battery consumption will indeed be high. However, you have nothing to worry about when you have a massive 5400mAh battery unit in the phone. As expected, this massive unit will be supported by fast charging technology and on the imaging front, the back will come with a 12MP shooter while the selfie camera will get a 5MP lens.
These are just rumors and not the real communication from Xiaomi. But since the phone will be here tomorrow, we should know the exact details really soon.
