Xiaomi Mi Max Successor Sets New Battery Standards

May 26, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Xiaomi started its journey this year with the flagship Mi 6 last month. Before even it started shaking up the markets, the company is up with their next beast, and it’s the successor to the mammoth Mi Max smartphone.

The successor features various hardware upgrades, and the most salient one among those is the improved battery, which Xiaomi claims will keep the device running for two full days. That’s huge, considering that it’s a phablet device with powerful specification.


Mi Max 2 features a battery of 5300 mAh inside to serve you for two full days. It’s always necessary that special attention be given to charging hours when packing a bigger battery, and Xiaomi hasn’t failed in giving that. Mi Max 2 is said to rake up around 70% of charge in just one hour. A fully powered battery will be enough to take you through 18 hours of video streams, 57 hours of call time, nine hours of game, or 10 days of music.

As far the remaining specs, the phablet device features a 6.44-inch Full HD display, beneath which the company has housed Snapdragon 625 processor with 2.0GHz clock speeds. There is also no shortage of RAM as Mi Max 2 packs a primary memory of 4GB accompanied by internal storage of 64 GB. A 128 GB version is also being brought around.

The camera setup on the rear features a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor with PDAF support and dual-LED flash. The image sensor is the same as that of the Mi 6 flagship, and can handle better inputs of lights according to the company. It’s accompanied by a wide angle 5MP camera.

The all-metal design of Mi Max has been retained by its successor, but the edges have been round in order to offer better grip to the users. The Android powered MIUI 8 OS will also offer one-hand support, while Xiaomi is also planning to introduce split-screen support soon.

Mi Max 2 will have its initial run in China with a price of $247 for the 64GB model. The higher storage version will be priced at $290. We can expect Xiaomi to launch its phablet device in its other favorite markets too, soon.
