Xiaomi Mi Max 2 to come with massive battery and OTG support
Xiaomi’s new mega phablet, the Mi Max 2 has been confirmed to launch tomorrow but the leaks keep pouring in. A leaked image surfaced earlier today showing the phablet powering up an iPhone 7.
Rumors yesterday had the Max 2 as having a 5349mAh battery, which would represent a significant upgrade from the original Max’s 4850mAh one. The image on the leak showed the Mi Max 2 reverse-charging an iPhone 7 with an OTG cable connected to a Type-C port, which would confirm USB Type-C, OTG capability, and a reasonably large battery unit on the phablet.
The Mi Max 2 debuted on GFXBench a while ago, and specifications listed pointed towards Snapdragon 626 on the phablet instead of the previously expected Snapdragon 660. However, recent information has made it more likely that the Max 2 will come in two variants: the first with 4GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 626, and a higher-priced one with 6GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 660. All of this remains unverified.
The phablet will have a 6.44" FHD display, 12MP primary camera and 5MP selfie shooter, and an Android 7.1.1 Nougat based MIUI 8 skin. Prices are unconfirmed but it is expected to retail for a price tag in the region of $230.
We'll have the Mi Max 2 officially in a few hours, so stay tuned.
