As expected Xiaomi has launched the Mi Max 2 at an event in India. Priced at Rs 16,999 the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 boasts of a humongous 6.44-inch Display and an equally big 5,300 mAh battery. The Xiaomi Mi Max is the first product from the company to be launched both offline and online. The Mi Max 2 will be available on Flipkart, Amazon, PayTM and Tata Cliq. The list of offline stores includes Sangeeta, Vijay Sales, ezone and others.
The new Mi Max 2 takes inspiration from the Mi6 in terms of the back panel and opts this time for rounded edges which Xiaomi says provides much more comfortable one-handed use. Of course, despite all those promises, you won’t be able to operate the Max 2 with a single arm considering the whopping 6.44-inch Full HD panel up front and off-screen capacitive buttons.
The battery has been bumped up to 5300mAh, the company claims can run for two days on a single charge. However, the Max 2 still manages to sport a slim unibody despite the larger footprint. The Mi Max 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 625 with 4GB RAM. On the storage front, the device offers 64GB of internal memory, sadly though Xiaomi is not bringing the 128GB variant to India. Xiaomi has also debuted the split screen feature bundled along with the global beta on Mi Max 2.
The optics arrangement includes a 12MP rear 1.25μm large pixel camera, dual-tone LED flash, Sony IMX386 sensor and a front-facing 5MP shooter. The setup is identical to the flagship Mi6. Mi Max 2 supports Quick Charge 3.0 and this is capable of charging the 5,300mAh battery from 0-68% in just one hour. With the reverse charging feature the Mi Max 2 can also be used to charge other devices. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the rear and the Mi Max 2 also sports an IR blaster. Xiaomi has also partnered with Reliance Jio and is offering 100GB of additional data (10GB data with every recharge).
