Xiaomi has sent out invites for a launch event in New Delhi that's scheduled to take place on July 18. The event will likely see the launch of the Mi Max 2 in India, the latest member of Xiaomi's popular phablet series, which was unveiled in China in May going by the company's tagline of "big is back". The Mi Max 2 highlights a massive screen and battery and has been priced in China starting at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 16,100).

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 specifications

The Mi Max 2 follows a similar design language compared to the Mi Max with a metal unibody casing with a fingerprint sensor on the back. It also keeps the same screen size at 6.44-inch with a full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display. But the Mi Max 2 goes bigger on the inside with a 5300mAh battery.

Apart from the larger display and battery, the Mi Max 2 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC clocked at 2GHz coupled with 4GB of RAM. In China, the handset has been launched in two storage variants of 64GB and 128GB, with the latter being priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 18,900). It's still not known whether both the variants will make it to the Indian market.

The Mi Max 2 runs on MIUI 8 based on Android Nougat and features a 12-megapixel rear camera with PDAF support and dual-LED flash that the company says is identical to the Mi 6. It also houses a 5-megapixel front-facing camera similar to its predecessor. Xiaomi says that the 5300mAh battery can last up to two days and also comes with Quick Charge 3.0 that powers up the battery up to 68 percent in just one hour.

We'll know the exact India price and availability details of the Mi Max 2 once it is launched on July 18. To recall, the Mi Max was launched in India last year starting at Rs. 14,999 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB variant and Rs. 19,999 for the 4GB RAM/ 128GB model.
