Last week Xiaomi teased that they would be announcing a new phone this week and sure enough they delivered as promise. The company has officially taken the wraps off their latest offering in the form of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2. However this isn’t the most powerful handset we’ve seen from Xiaomi, but it does pack a pretty huge battery.
We’re pretty sure that the phone’s battery size is its selling point. It comes with a whopping 5,300mAh battery that Xiaomi is boasting will last users up to 2 days on a single charge, which is pretty impressive since most smartphones these days can barely last a day, let alone two.
The company is also claiming fast charging capabilities where it will recharge to 68% in an hour, which for a battery that size is pretty fast. Under the hood, the Mi Max 2 is a mid-ranger handset with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, and will come in 64GB or 128GB storage options. We’re also looking at a 12MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, a rear fingerprint sensor, and a USB-C port.
Unfortunately those of us living stateside will not be able to expect the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 since Xiaomi still has yet to expand to the US. However those living in markets that they operate in, the handset will retail starting at $247.
