Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Live Images Leaked, Specs Details in Benchmark Results
The successor to Xiaomi's original phablet offering, called the Xiaomi Mi Max 2, is expected to make its debut very soon. While Xiaomi has yet to officially announce it launch date, the device is rumored to be making an appearance beside the company's highly awaited flagship smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi 6.
The original 6.44-inch phablet smartphone was launched back in May of last year, and it would only make sense for Xiaomi to launch its successor at around the same time this year. The company has already revealed that their flagship smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi 6, will be coming out this month. Xiaomi also officially announced its updated Mi Pad 3, which now only leaves the Mi Max 2 and the Mi Mix 2 as the two products that have yet to be made official.
In the past few week, the full hardware specification of the Mi Max 2 was revealed through a leaked benchmarking result on GXFBench. Now, new reports have just emerged claiming that the very first images of the Mi Max 2 may just have been leaked. According to GSM Arena, the alleged images of the new phablet was apparently posted on the Chinese Twitter-equivalent website, Weibo.
The unit that is shown in the images is covered in a transparent plastic casing. Unfortunately, the images only show the back, top, and bottom portion of the device. This may have been done intentionally to hide the Mi Max 2's display, which Xiaomi may have tweaked in some way.
As for the Mi Max's specs, the phablet is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 chipset that will be paired with an ample 4 GB of RAM. The device will still be sporting the same 6.44-inch full HD display. Other features that have been revealed by the previous leaks include an IR blaster, USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and up to 128 GB of internal memory space.
