Just a few weeks back, Xiaomi announced their second generation of phablets i.e. Mi Max 2 at an event in China. The company is now teasing a new device set to be launched on July 18 during an event in New Delhi, with a tag line of “BIG IS BACK“. The tag line basically refers to the phablet device Mi Max 2 which matches from the Mi Max tagline of last year which said: “Mi Max is the new big”.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 sports a 6.44-inch Full HD 1080p display, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor along with 4 GB of RAM. It comes with 64 GB / 128 GB of internal storage along with support for expandable storage via MicroSD card and runs on MIUI 8 based on Android Nougat. We expect Xiaomi to launch only the 64 GB storage variant of the device in India.
