Xiaomi Mi Max 2 to drop next week with 6.44-inch display, 5000mAh battery and more

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 to drop next week with 6.44-inch display, 5000 mAh battery and more
During the latter stages of 2016, Xiaomi rolled out a slew of high-end smartphones. From the Mi Note 2 to the much-vaunted Mi MIX, the wave of new handsets demonstrated the Chinese firm's willingness to challenge the industry's front-runners. Then in February, we heard about a Mi Max 2 with a generous 6 gigs of RAM and an even more abundant 6.44-inch display. Now, it appears the device could be just a week away from its grand unveiling. 

As those interested in Xiaomi's releases will probably know, the new Mi 6 is expected to be showcased on April 19th, exactly one week from now. Where the Mi Max 2 was originally slated for a May launch by the rumor mill, it may instead coincide with the upcoming flagship. 

The Mi Max 2 sounds like a quite a big deal and in size, it most certainly will be. Along with the large display, which is set to be a 1080p offering, the Mi Max 2 could be kitted out with a monstrous 5,000 mAh battery. That's quite a lot of juice, and taking into consideration the middling Snapdragon 626 processor of the Standard model, the Max 2 should run for substantial lengths of time between charge.

Elsewhere, the Mi Max 2 could be graced with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and will supposedly run on Android 7.1 Nougat right off the bat. Along with the aforementioned Standard variant, there's also said to be a Higher version of the Mi Max 2 with improved chipset -- perhaps the Snapdragon 660. From what we can gather, the two configurations will otherwise be identical, though don't be surprised if the Higher model includes other perks. 

Price-wise, the entry level version is set to retail at the equivalent of $217, with the Higher offering likely to weigh in at around $246.
