  • Xiaomi Mi Max 2 India Launch Set for Today How to Watch Live Stream

The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 comes out into the markets in two variants when it comes to storage space: 64GB and 128GB (The 128GB RAM variant has not been launched in India yet).

Xiaomi released a teaser last week hinting at a new product for the Indian market. Here are the first impressions of the Mi Max 2.

A few hours ago, meltyStyle made you share a truly stylish Xiaomi Mi 7 concept. Now, a phone as big as that will need an equally bigger battery.

While smartphones now dominate the offerings presented at the Mi Home outlet in Bengaluru, Jain has admitted that he is keen to bring more product categories to India. We already deduced that it was the Mi Max 2 and we were right.

Gone are the sharp edges and ugly square corners. To avail the Mi cash coupons, you need to play "The Big Chase" game from July 19 to July 20. Many said that instead of launching a new phone, Xiaomi should be providing updated Android for their existing phones. The smartphone is also equipped with an infrared blaster which acts as a universal remote for TV and air-conditioners.

One of the major highlights of the Mi Max 2 is the introduction of USB type-C port. This is the same processor that also powers the popular Redmi Note 4. It is packed in a metal body with an incredible dual chamfered edges and the device also adds up a bit curved in both the front and back. There is also Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the top. But what makes the Mi Max 2 stand out are the streamlined bezels. By bringing something like Mi Max 2 to India, the company can sell the phones that Chinese consumers don't particularly want here.

The smartphone gets powered by a huge 5300 mAh battery which is a bump up from 4850 mAh battery of the previous version. Announced at price of Rs. 16,999, it's hard for any phablet to beat that price. As the rest of Xiaomi's lineup, the smartphone will offer a great bang for the buck, as it is expected to retail for CNY 1,999, which is around $295.

Anyway, as we know more, so will you.

Reliance Jio is offering extra 100GB data to Xiaomi Mi Max 2 buyers.

The Sony IMX386 sensor is the same sensor that Xiaomi has used in its flagship device, Mi 6. The selfie camera includes a Beautify mode for better selfies.

The poster hints at a dual camera setup in the back along with dual-tone LED flash.

The Mi Max 2 comes with Android 7.1.1 out of the box and will be available in matte black with a fingerprint resistant coating. Furthermore, "Split screen" feature will be introduced shortly which will allow two applications to run in the foreground. However, Xiaomi has also clarified that it is "company operated". Currently, there's no word on the battery capacity or any other details. The Chinese company has launched Mi Max past year which gained huge user base in the country. We can call it a convenient cross between a phone and tablet aka Phablet.

On the charging front, it packs in an impressive performance on paper.

If you have been thinking that the massive battery will result in a hefty phone, well, let me tell you that the Mi Max 2 weighs just 122 grams, nearly as same as the Mi Max. For a device which is priced at just INR. It comes with 64GB inbuilt storage, which can be expanded. Now exactly after a year, the company is launching its successor, the Mi Max 2. Separately, Xiaomi also mentioned that it will be launching a Mi Home outlet soon in Delhi as well.
