The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will also feature a 6.44-inch IPS display with Full HD resolution. An octa-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 chipset will power the Mi Max 2. It does look like a step down from the Snapdragon 652 toting Mi Max Prime. However, the Snapdragon 626 comes from the modern family of Qualcomm chips that promise faster 4G LTE experience.

Considering the fact that Mi Max 2 may not have more than 4GB of RAM, as widely speculated. That’s because the Snapdragon 626 chipset can support only up to 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM.

The highlight of the Mi Max 2 will be its 5,000 mAh battery and it should come with the Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology.

While there is no official word on the launch, speculations suggest that the base model will cost around $217 (Rs 14,000 approx.) while the higher storage capacity model will cost you around $249 (Rs 16,200 approx.). We shall look forward to see this device at a launch event on April 19 in China.
