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”.
