Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship phone, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has been leaked several times in the past three weeks revealing purported specifications of the phone. Until today, the design of the Mi Max 2 remained a mystery. However, with today’s leak, that’s going to change as the renders of the phone have surfaced on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 comes with a slightly redesigned back panel. The rear camera module lies at the same place as seen on the Mi Max, but the LED flash module is moved to the left of the sensor. The fingerprint sensor is still present on the back of the phone, within reach of your index finger.
The Mi Max 2 will take design cues from the Apple iPhone 7 as the antenna bands run around the top and bottom of the phone. Coming to the sides, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack and IR blaster on the top side of the phone with the bottom being left to USB Type-C ports and two speaker grilles.
As far as the specifications go, the Mi Max 2 will come with the same display size of 6.44-inch with Full HD resolution. The phone is speculated to come in two variants – one with Snapdragon 626 SoC and the other one with Snapdragon 660 SoC. While the former is said to pack 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, the latter is expected to come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage.
A 13MP rear-facing camera and 5MP front-facing snapper cover the camera department in the phone. The battery capacity in the phone will be bumped to 5000mAh from the 4850mAh unit as seen in the Mi Max. The phone is expected to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 9 (expected) on top.
Speculations are rife that the Mi Max 2 will be unveiled alongside the Xiaomi Mi 6 on April 19, which is just two days away from now. The price of the phone is expected to be $217 (approx. Rs. 14,000) for the Snapdragon 626 variant. The Snapdragon 660 variant is supposed to cost around $246 (approx. Rs. 16,000).
