Xiaomi is launching a new variant of the Mi Max two in India soon, aiming to please mid-range buyers. Following launching that the Mi Max 2 with 4GB + 64GB configuration at Rs. 16,999 in July, the business will now be coming out with a 4GB + 32GB option that is priced at Rs. 12,999. The new variant will go on sale starting September 20 at 12pm on Amazon India, Mi.com and Mi Home, the company confirms.
To remember, the dual-SIM (Micro+Nano) Xiaomi Mi Max two runs MIUI 8 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. In our review of the handset, we discovered the overall performance to be smooth despite a now dated Snapdragon 625 SoC.
In the camera section, the Mi Max 2 features a 12-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX386 detector (with 1.25-micron pixels), PDAF, f/2.2 aperture, and dual-LED flash.
While the Mi Max 2 was initially established with 64GB of inbuilt storage, the Chinese phone maker will be launching a 32GB variant that will collapse beneath the sub-Rs.15,000 category. Both the variants come with expandability option via microSD card (up to 128GB). In terms connectivity, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 supports 4G VoLTE, as well as dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, USB Type-C, Bluetooth v4.2, and GPS/ A-GPS. Sensors include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, infrared sensor, fingerprint sensor, along with proximity detector.
The smartphone packs a 5300mAh battery which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. The Mi Max 2 steps 174.1×88.7×7.6mm and weighs 211 grams.
