Xiaomi Mi Max 2 to come with Snapdragon 626 SoC, Sony IMX378 camera


Xiaomi keeps pushing its limits again and while preparing for the imminent unveiling of both Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus flagship models, quietly boosts it’s other projects like the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 for example.

Xiaomi Mi Max

According to the latest rumors, the Mi Max successor will not – unfortunately- use the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 660 chipset, but it will be equipped with a Snapdragon 626 processor instead. It’s the next-gen SoC that comes after the well known Snapdragon 625 chipset and provides a 10% increase in performance over the previous model. It also has support for dual cameras while also retaining the qualities of the SD 625 in terms of power and battery life advantages.

The same rumors insist that the new MAX 2 will pack a 12MP Sοny IMX378 sensor, the same that the Mi5S model has, and a 5MPixel selfie camera in front. It will come with the same 6.44-inch display with 1080p resolution the first model had, but now it will run on Android 7.1.1 with MIUI 8 on top and a new 5000 mAh battery.

It’s price is rumored to fall between 1499 Yuan and 1699 Yuan but -obviously- nothing is official so far, so we have to be patient until it’s officially unveiled.

    Phablet is not gaining any momentum in the market. However I’m looking forward for the build quality before buying one

    The 62x series the most practical soc you get 100% return on efficiency unlike flagship docs that keeps charging you more that gives you more “power” you won’t be using

      SD660 is not a premium soc and will give better dollar to performance ratio compare to SD62x series. Such a disappointed decision move by Xiaomi to increase their profit selling lower spec but higher price
