Chinese technology giant Xiaomi seems to be gearing up to launch the successor of its Mi Max phablet. Few online rumours suggest that the Mi max 2 will be announced in May.
According to AndroidPure, the company will tweak the hardware of the device, but will incorporate the same 6.44-inch edge-to-edge display. However, the Mi Max 2 is supposed to pack a larger amount of memory and a slightly better battery.
The Mi Max 2 is expected to come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. The current variant comes with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, but it lacks microSD card slot. The previous variant was fuelled by 4,850 mAh battery, the sequel will feature a slightly larger 5,000 mAh battery inside.
There is no word on what camera sensor the company will use, but we do know that the current variant comes with a 16MP rear camera with PDAF and a 5MP front facing shooter for selfies. Xiaomi might add a fingerprint sensor and possibly, MIUI 8 wrapped under Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
Xiaomi has decided to skip the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition this year, so the Mi Max 2 is likely to be introduced in China at a dedicated event....
