Xiaomi Mi Max 2 rumors emerge, comes with Snapdragon 660 SoC and 6GB RAM!


It’s rumors day once again in China and today Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is in the “menu”. According to a leakster the Chinese company has already designed the Mi Max succesor dubbed as Xiaomi Mi Max 2, and plans to unveil it in May!

All of the above come from a recent Weibo post saying that the purported model will stick to the same 6,44 inch display its predecessor had, but it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. It will have 6GB of RAM and 128 of internal storage along with microSD support and a 5000 mAh battery with Fast Charge feature.

As always we take these rumors with a pinch of salt, until we finally manage to confirm them, ok?

    Really don’t see why they don’t just offer an 820/821 version for a bit more too.

      Don’t think S660 will be much behind S82x, actually think it will future the same modem, old A510 GPU renamed to a A512 with a frequency bump remaining still half the size & cost of the A530 (which also means S660 SoC will be much cheaper as the GPU pretty much takes largest die size) still backed up with a LP DDR 4 (vs LP DDR3 on S65x SoC’s) will deliver 30~40% more performance compared to A510 which is of course less than a peak A530 one but in sustained long term will be able to match it as A510 didn’t throttle much contrary to the A530 & also just enough to match Rogue GPU performance of upcoming X35 MTK. A big cpu clusters remains the biggest mystery for a time being regarding S660 as earlier “leaks” indicated the Kryo first gen quad cluster but I really hope that wouldn’t be a case hoping for a much more efficient reference A73’s in any case (4xA53 & 4xA73/Kryo SMP performance will be better than S82x’s based on 2×2 cluster Kryo core’s.
      So you see you don’t really need a S82x choice at all & engineering vise its a dumb SoC. All of this actually makes me confident how rumours about S660 won’t lunch until September are believable as QC doesn’t really want to cannibalise the S83x sails & that will be still in time to undercut the X3x sails.

          Well he got extensive answer… All do we still need to see actual S660.

              Naturally I did, I’m fact that’s why I checked the name. You know I get very unpleasant when someone pokes with me. Simultaneous Multi Processing…

        TL;DR The 660 is just as good if not better than the 820
