Xiaomi Mi Max 2 with Snapdragon 660 Rumored to Launch in May
Xiaomi is rumored to be working on the successor of the Mi Max and planning for a launch in May. The successor of the last year’s Mi Max, the Mi Max 2 is reported to continue with the massive 6.44 inch display. Under the hood, this device is rumored to pack a Snapdragon 660 processor alongside 6GB of RAM.
The report was spotted on Weibo and sheds light on some of its specs and design elements. Alongside the powerful Snapdragon 660 processor and 6GB RAM, the Mi Max 2 will probably have the internal storage capacity of 128GB. The leak also stated that the successor of the Mi Max will have a slightly larger battery at 5,000 mAh and would support fast charging.
Coming to the design of the Mi Max 2, there would be very little changes. It is rumored to have a full metal body, rather than the plastic ends as seen on Mix Max. We can expect it to come out with Andriod 7.0 Nougat with Xiaomi’s MIUI running on top of it.
The Mi Max was launched in July 2016 and was Xiaomi’s take on big phones segment. The Mi Max is an impressive device with Snapdragon 650 chipset, with 3GB of RAM; and is priced at Rs. 14,999. The prime variant, which is priced at Rs. 19,999, has the Snapdragon 652 chipset and 4GB RAM.
Coupled with powerful specs, massive battery, and a humongous display, the Mi Max 2 will transform the phablet market just like Mi Max did last year. However, since the information is not official, it is better if we take these rumors with a pinch of salt.
