Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Brings Upgrades to the Design, Camera, and Battery Compared to Mi Max!

Xiaomi has finally pulled the wraps off its big-sized Mi Max 2 at an event in China. The Mi Max 2 succeeds the last year’s Mi Max and comes with various improvements along with an increased price tag. Xiaomi has highlighted the battery and camera of the Mi Max 2 at the launch event.


The Mi Max 2 comes with a 5300mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology and Parallel charging technology. That said, with the help of both technologies, the Mi Max 2 can charge up to 68 percent in just one hour. Furthermore, Xiaomi promises a two-day battery life claiming the massive battery as ‘capacity like a power bank.’ According to Xiaomi, the Mi Max 2 will offer 18 hours of video playback time, ten days of music playback, nine hours of gaming, and 57 hours of calling with one complete charge.

The second prominent feature in the Mi Max 2 is its camera. The device houses a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor with 1.25?m large pixel camera. The sensor is identical to the Mi 6’s primary sensor, claims Xiaomi. The increase in pixel size means the photos captured will appear with more light. Xiaomi states that there will be 56 percent increased light in the photos captured by Mi Max 2. Also, there’s a 5MP front-facing camera, and the camera app has inbuilt beautification mode.


Design wise; the Mi Max 2 comes with full metal unibody symmetric design with rounded corners and dual-band antenna design, same as the Apple iPhone 7. Furthermore, Xiaomi has trimmed down the side bezels to make the device compact in hands. The device has the same 6.44-inch Full HD display and a fingerprint sensor at the back.

There’s a big surprise here. The rumours about the device coming in two variants are not true as Xiaomi has announced only one variant of the phone. The phone uses an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM. However, the device has two storage options- 64GB and 128GB. The 4GB+64GB variant costs RMB 1699 (approx. Rs. 15,900), while the 4GB+128GB variant costs RMB 1999 (approx. Rs. 18,700).

The Mi Max 2 has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and a USB Type-C port. The Mi Max 2 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but sadly it’s still the MIUI 8 and not the MIUI 9.


The Mi Max 2 may launch in India in July and might be sold on July 23 as the company is launching a new phone for every two months and holding its first sale on 23 of every alternate month.
