Leading technology company Xiaomi today launched Mi Max 2 in India, the latest device in its large-screen smartphone category.
Mi Max redefined the large-screen smartphone category when it launched a year ago, spurring demand in this segment and establishing market dominance in the 6-inch and above market.
With a 6.44-inch supersized 2.5D curved glass screen featuring Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 protection, Mi Max 2 is perfect for watching movies or TV shows on the go. In addition, the stereo speakers on Mi Max 2 intelligently activate in landscape orientation, transforming it into a mobile theater with an immersive audio experience.
Mi Max 2 features a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 625 (Octa-core 2.0GHz) with 14nm FinFET technology, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage.
Available in a gorgeous shade of matte black, Mi Max 2 now features a unibody metal design, that is just 7.6mm at its thinnest point, with rounded edges for better hand-feel, and a rear fingerprint sensor.
Mi Max 2 is powered by a massive 5300mAh two-day battery, which provides up to 18 hours of video playback, 57 hours of talktime, or over 31 days on standby. The huge battery means that Mi Max 2 can even charge other smartphones connected to its USB Type-C port. Despite the large capacity, Mi Max 2 is able to charge 68 percent in one hour as it supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 with parallel charging, which allows fast charging while controlling temperature increase.
In addition, Mi Max 2 features a 12MP Sony IMX386 1.25-micron large-pixel camera sensor for better photos. At the front, is a 5MP front camera, with Beautify mode for great selfies.
Thanks to MIUI optimizations, Mi Max 2 is great for use in any situation. With “One-handed mode”, which is a feature that makes the usable display smaller, users can still navigate with ease using just one hand. Furthermore, MIUI will soon introduce “Split screen”, which allows two applications to run in the foreground, making full use of the large 6.44-inch display. For instance, a user can watch a video using the top half of the screen while replying to messages in the lower half.
Starting from INR 16,999, Mi Max 2 will be available during the 3rd Mi Anniversary special sale on July 20 and 21, from 10 a.m. on Mi.com and Mi Home.
Following this, Mi Max 2 will be available from July 27 across all online and offline partners of Xiaomi, along with mi.com and Mi Home.
