Xiaomi will be announcing its new flagship smartphone, the Mi 6, this month and we have seen multiple rumours and speculations. However, there is another Xiaomi device that is set to launch soon. The successor to the Mi Max phablet, conveniently called Mi Max 2, was spotted once again. This time the source is a bit more believable.
According to a leaked GFXBench score sheet, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will feature similar dimensions as its predecessor including a 6.4-inch Full-HD (1920×1080) display. There is also the mention of an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 2.2GHz.
Now the exact model number of the SoC is not confirmed, it does match the specifications of the upcoming Snapdragon 660 which were leaked earlier. The rumoured chip could feature four Cortex A73 CPUs clocked at 2.2 GHz and four Cortex A53 CPUs clocked at 1.9 GHz. It will also be made on a similar 14 nm process along with an Adreno 512 GPU, X10 baseband, two channel LPDDR4X-1866 memory and UFS 2.1 flash memory.
Rest of the specifications include 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB storage. As for the camera, expect a 12 MP sensor that can record 4K videos and a 5 MP camera on the front.
Previous rumours suggested that the Mi Max 2 would come with up to 6 GB of RAM and even carry a large 5,000 mAh battery. Now that would really make it a ‘Max’ phone.
