Today, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 was announced in China with two different variants based on its memory storage - 64GB and 128GB for 1699 Yuan and 1999 Yuan respectively, that’s around RM1056 and RM1243 in direct currency conversion. Anyway, here are the official tech-specs from the live stream we saw on YouTube.

Comparing it with the predecessor, the Mi Max, there was that much difference except the huge battery upgrade, same goes to the quick charge technology that enables to charge up to 68% in an hour. Gamers and heavy entertainment users will be happy to know there’s a new dual stereo speakers and one-handed mode for easier tasking.
However, the processor remains the same, the new split screen multitasking feature is yet to be featured as well but Xiaomi promises future MIUI updates will enable it. It’s also only available in Gold.
The massive phablet will go on sale on 1 June 2017 in China, while we surely can get an imported set, but it’d be nice if Xiaomi Malaysia officially export the it here. Time will tell. Stay tuned for more Xiaomi news at TechNave.com.
