Xiaomi possibly teases the Mi Max 2 phablet for India launch

The launch event most likely to take place on July 18, 2017 in New Delhi. So they are launching the second generation Mi Max in India.

In terms of connectivity, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 supports dual-SIM dual standby and offers various connectivity options including 4G voLTE, Wi-Fi, WiFi hotspot, GPS/A-GPS/Glonass, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, a 3.5mm audio port, IR blaster, USB OTG, and a USB Type-C port for superfast charging and data transfer. Internally, it is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz and it is coupled with Adreno 506 GPU. Xiaomi is expected to price it similarly in India.

The phone runs on MIUI 8 based on Android 7.0 Nougat, which is a first, as other Xiaomi phones with MIUI 8 runs on Android Marshmallow.




As per a recent report, the Mi Max 2 will be initially available for purchase via online channels but later on, it will also be sold via offline channels as well. For selfies, it comes with a 5 Megapixel front camera. The Mi Max 2 was launched in May this year and comes with a staggering 6.44-inch Display and a 5300mAh battery. This is a significant improvement of the new Mi Max over the older one. Although we have seen in the past that performance of the MIUI software is smooth and some of its features are useful for many consumers. What are your thoughts on the new Mi Max 2 so far? However, even though Xiaomi has a sizable fan following in India, the company believes that for Indian consumers budget phones are better fit.

Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi Max 2 smartphone in India on July 19. In the end chose to go with the Mi Max 2 for several reasons, one of them being the fact that Mi 5 didn't do as well as the company was hoping for a year ago in India.

If this turns out to be the Mi max 2, then consumers seeking a mid-range smartphone will have a worthy alternative to the newly launched Samsung Galaxy J7 Max. On the back, the company has included a fingerprint scanner.
