Xiaomi unveiled the successor to the one-year-old Mi Max, the Mi Max 2 at an event in Beijing yesterday and its main feature is no doubt the massive 5,300mAh battery! In comparison, the Mi Max has a 4,850mAh battery.
The Chinese company claims that you can easily use the Mi Max 2 for two days on a single charge. It is stated to provide up to 18 hours of video playback, 10 days of music playback, 9 hours of gaming, 21 hours of navigation, 19 hours of reading and call-time of 57 hours!
The huge battery capacity is augmented by the superb power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, which can also be found in the Redmi Note 4, ASUS ZenFone 3, ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom and Moto Z Play. If the battery runs out of juice, the Mi Max 2 can be charged up to 68 percent in an hour, thanks to Quick Charge 3.0 and parallel charging.
Other specifications include a 6.44-inch immersive display, a full metal unibody with symmetrical design, rounded edges and discreet antenna design, a 12MP rear Sony IMX386 camera sensor, a 5MP front-facing camera, 4GB RAM, 64/128GB internal storage with microSD support up to 128GB, stereo speakers, and a rear fingerprint sensor.
The Mi Max 2 will be available in China on June 1 for CNY1,699 (~RM1,059, 4GB + 64GB model) and CNY1,999 (~RM1,249, 4GB + 128GB model). It took nearly four months after the official announcement for the Mi Max to arrive in Malaysia, so we reckon the same will apply for the Mi Max 2 or earlier! Keep your fingers crossed!
