Xiaomi announces the monstrous Mi Max 2 with a 6.44″ screen, 5300mAh battery, and Nougat
Xiaomi is already off to a good start for 2017. The Mi 6 was unveiled a month ago, and now the Chinese manufacturer is back with a successor the last year’s Mi Max. Pushing the limits of what one could call a “phone,” the Mi Max 2 packs in a massive screen with a huge battery to match. And since this is Xiaomi we’re talking about here, affordability is also of the package.
The hallmark features of the Mi Max 2 are, of course, the screen size and battery. Say what you will about MIUI, but its optimizations really push the limits of how long a battery can last. Xiaomi claims that the Mi Max 2 sports a “two-day” battery — something I do not doubt considering my experience with the company’s other devices.
The singular color option is a bummer if you don’t like gold, but it’s good to see this phone launch with Nougat. Anyway, you can get all of this starting at RMB 1699 (~$248 USD) for the 64GB/4GB version or RMB 1999 (~$292 USD) for the 128GB/4GB model. However, the June 1 launch date is limited to China; global availability is unknown at this point.
