Xiaomi has scheduled an event on April 19 for the launch of its flagship device, the Mi 6. The company is also likely to debut the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 on the same day considering the rumours going on the web. The phone is supposed to be similar to its predecessor, the Mi Max with a 6.4-inch display. Now, renders of the same device are out on Weibo showing off the phone wrapped in a case. The image reveals that the device will have a 3.5mm audio jack and is also assumed to have a USB Type-C port as well as a microUSB port.
Talking more about its design, it might come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, IR blaster and a bottom speaker as seen in the above image. The Mi Max 2 is supposed to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor with 4GB of RAM. It will run on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with MIUI 8 on top. The phone might feature a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and NFC support.
The Mi Max 2 is also rumoured to pack a large 5000mAh battery. A significant upgrade in terms of hardware could be expected from the company, considering that the first Snapdragon 660 chipset smartphone might also come from it. Also, improvements in other factors such as build quality and design can be expected seeing that Xiaomi has brought innovation to its handsets from time to time. Let’s wait for two days more to see if the Mi Max 2 will debut along with the Xiaomi Mi 6.
