Xiaomi introduces Mi Max 2 @ Rs 16999

Xiaomi Mi 5X Launching On July 26?

It has been three years since Xiaomi was launched in India and to commemorate its third anniversary the Chinese company, at its Mi Max 2 launch event, announced that it will host the celebration on July 20 (Thursday) and July 21 (Friday). The key differentiator from last year's Mi Max is the design, with the Mi Max 2 looking much more polished thanks to the anodized aluminum chassis.

The new Mi Max 2 takes inspiration from the Mi6 in terms of the back panel and opts this time for rounded edges which Xiaomi says provides much more comfortable one-handed use.

Under the hood, the device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 8.

It also boasts a 12-MP camera (Sony's IMX386 sensor, 1.25um pixel size, f/2.2 aperture, PDAF) on the back and a 5-MP shooter (85-degree wide-angle lens, f/2.0 aperture) on the front side. It will also feature a dual-camera setup along with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. "Mi Max 2" can also charge other smartphones connected to its USB Type-C port placed in between the speaker grills. The battery supports Quick Charge 3.0 which gives 68 per cent of charge in just one hour. It is also pretty clear from the picture that the phone will feature a metal unibody design. The 6.44 inch Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is priced at Rs 19,999. The dual-SIM (micro+nano) handset supports 4G and has a 3.5mm audio-jack. The Mi Max 2 weighs 211 grams and the dimensions are 174.1 x 88.8 x 7.6 mm.

The information available so far on this soon-to-be-launched Xiaomi 5X will be a 5.5-inch display phone with the main processor being a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. As a bundled offer, Reliance Jio subscribers get 100GB of 4G data.

There were some speculations earlier of a smartphone bearing the name Xiaomi X1 or its new sub-brand Lanmi X1 could hit the markets. The new phablet will be available in two different variants.

The smartphone has been launched in India in one configuration only - 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
