Xiaomi Mi Max

We have been hearing rumors about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max 2. The latest development is that the Mi Max 2 has been spotted on GFXBench. According to the benchmarking results, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will ship with Snapdragon 660 processor and a large 6.4-inch display.

If you would like to work with a large phone for web browsing and other related activities, you should wait for the launch of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 because of its large display. In addition to a large display, the handset will ship with an FHD display.

Based on the information available, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has passed the GFXBench results via the code name Xiaomi Oxygen. This is evident from the GFXBench results page. The Mi Max 2 will ship pre-loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on top of MIUI.

As mentioned above, the rumored phone will feature a 6.4-inch FHD display, Snapdragon 660 processor, Adreno 506 graphics processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB expandable storage, 13MP rear camera, and 5MP selfie snapper. The highlight of Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will be the integration of 14nm manufacturing processor, LPDDR4X memory, X10 LTE including UFS 2.1 storage capacity.

The processor is designed to run at a clock speed of 2.2GHz and has been tagged as an octa-core. The GFXBench data doesn’t contain the battery specifications but we expect a 4000mAh battery like in the original Mi Max.

An interesting point to note is that the GFXBench results show 109MB. We expect that the storage capacity has been provided after deducting the space consumed by the Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The RAM is mentioned as 3.5MB and you can see that the MIUI consumes only fewer resources.

While you can capture 4K images and videos using the rear camera, you can shoot 2K images and videos using the front-facing snapper. In addition to all major connectivity features, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 also provides support for NFC.

That said, you should accept the above facts only with a pinch of salt since there is no official confirmation. Regarding the release date, you can expect the availability of the handset in May 2016 in China followed by a launch in emerging countries. You should be prepared to pay $100 more than the currently available Xiaomi Mi Max 2 because of the latest technologies.
