Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship Mi Max 2 has been spotted on GFBench. The device is codenamed “Xiaomi Oxygen” and a quick look at the specifications will tell you that it’s the refreshed Mi Max 2 that we are expecting this year. What this also means is that only the Mi Max is left out when it comes to getting a refresh. Mi Max 2 is rumored to be employing the same 6.44-inch display and might be powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The listing on the benchmark further reveals that the device will sport an FHD display and the SoC will be clocked at 2.2GHz and paired with an Adreno 506 GPU. Unlike the earlier rumors, the benchmarks show that the Mi Max 2 may come equipped with a 4GB RAM. The device will be running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat alongside MIUI. That said, I am still apprehensive if the chipset is Snapdragon 660 since the Snapdragon 660 is believed to come with an Adreno 512 GPU, perhaps its Snapdragon 625 or 626.
The Mi Max 2 is also expected to come equipped with a 12-Megapixel primary camera capable of playing UHD or 4K videos along with features like auto-focus, face detection etc. The front facing camera is a 5-Mega pixel shooter. The battery details are not revealed in the benchmarks but it mentions NFC support. On a related note, Xiaomi’s Mi 6 is also around the corner and is mostly likely to come equipped with Snapdragon 835.
The current Mi Max features a 6.4-inch FHD display and is powered by Snapdragon 652 along with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. As we can see not much will change in the Mi Max 2 except for the processor and a slightly bigger battery pack maybe. That being said the benchmark listing are not something that we can treat as gospels of truth and it’s most likely that the production version of the Mi Max 2 will come with slightly different specifications.
